Hi! My name is Lynn.
At The Eternal Explorer I’ll share the story how travel can be a force of good; for yourself and the planet. You’ll find tips, inspiration and stories for meaningful travel experiences; lessons learned on the road and at home.
It’s a place for people like you with a passion to wander and wonder. Who are looking for more than a travel blog, a source of inspiration to explore the world we live in, and within.
I’m a lawyer and passionate traveler; born and raised in Germany, but feel at home mostly everywhere.
I grew up with the luck of having travel writers as parents who took me with them on their journeys since I’m a little child.
At an early age I discovered a sense of curiosity and adventure.
We traveled to Yemen and Oman. I experienced culture, customs and people different from the one I knew. The girls I met lived and dressed differently than my school friends, which I thought was pretty amazing.
I understood, it’s a great thing that the world doesn’t look the same. And even greater, that we have the privilege to experience those differences.
I chased iguanas in México, wandered through the Costa Rican jungle and went horse back riding in the Arabian desert.
I realized, we live on a planet full of wonders surrounded by the most beautiful natural playgrounds. And that it can only be our mission to protect those very places.
When I grew older
I kept traveling with my parents, because they knew so well where to go.
And immersed in my own adventures.
I went to Melbourne to study abroad, was intrigued sleeping in the outback under a sky of million stars, yet touched by devastating living conditions of the Aborigines.
I was mesmerized by Java’s wild landscape and World Heritage Borobudur and realized there’s more to Indonesia than Bali.
I refused India, then fell in love with it.
Why I started this blog
I fell in love with the world at an early age, and I’m still.
I love traveling, exploring, people and their stories, inquiring, and surely writing.
As I didn’t find a travel blog focusing on other aspects of travel, meaningful experiences and connections as well as the outer and inner journey, I thought I’d create my own.
I believe that life and travel are the best teachers. If life is your classroom, travel is university.
Since we’re all explorers, it’s not only about my but also your adventures.
Let the adventures begin..
I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you`re proud of, and if you find that you`re not, I hope you find the strength to start all over again.Eric Roth, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
