Travel the World While Staying in Stuttgart
As some of you may remember, a few months ago I had a cool idea for a photo project. I am talking about my ‘’Broke Girl on Vacation" project. As the name suggests, I was pretty, darn
broke at the time, and had zero money to go on vacation. I pitied my silly, dramatic self quite a bit! That’s what you get for quitting your side job, because you want to make it big in blogger-la-la-land. What made things worse, was seeing all these annoying (ultra-dreamy!) travel pictures that some of these successful travel bloggers were sharing on stupid (fabulous) Instagram. I couldn’t help but to be jealous.
THEY were living MY dream, while I was sitting at home –super broke- unable to live it up at some fabulous beach. But in order to become fancy, little Miss food-slash-travel-blogger, living it up at the beach was a necessity. It seemed like broke, normal girls like me could never make it in the world of fancy-schmancy travel bloggers. This cool job was only cut out for the rich, and “famous”. I felt sad.
But then it hit me… I had a brilliant idea! I simply would have to get creative, and work with what I have. So, I grabbed my camera, and searched for spots in my hometown that looked like they could be in a foreign, exciting country. I wouldn’t let the lack of money get in the way of me and my dreams. No way! My plan worked. Soon, I had some cool Instagram-worthy photos.
I then teamed up with Stuttgart’s super hip online magazine “Stadtkind” to expand the project. Tanja Simoncev - the awesome journalist behind Stadtkind - and I, managed to create an awesome collection of travel pictures that were all shot in Stuttgart. Working with Tanja really paid-off! If you’d like to see this cool photo collection that includes over 40 pictures, head over to Stadtkind and check out the article.
