Who writes?

The best surfer & writer
out there are the ones having the most fun
!

After my semester abroad in Italy, it was clear to me that I, Verena, would later live somewhere by the sea!

Still not quite sure where to go, I completed my bachelor's degree in linguistics and my master's degree in interdisciplinary media studies at the University of Bielefeld. Luckily I discovered surfing, otherwise I would probably never have ended up in Portugal, where I now live in Lisbon and work as a freelance writer, freelance journalist, translator and consultant for outdoor sports and adventure travel.

My most loved projects are definitely my written books and I hope that I can motivate my readers to leave their everyday life and start a new adventure!

When I'm not sitting at my laptop writing about travel, surfing or future of work/tourism, you'll find me either on the beach or in a little hidden cafe... where? Good question, you'll have to stop by here more often 😉


If everything always worked out on a trip, then it wouldn't be an adventure!

In 2017 I studied 6 months in Genova (Italy). I will always remember this half year full of pesto, jumping into the sea and new friends, this was the start in my lifelong travel adventure!

I also met Anna from Catalonia there and since then we have been trying to meet at least once a year somewhere in the world.

I wish you a lot of fun on my homepage! Always remember, “all you´ve got to do is decide and the hardest part is over” (Tony Wheeler).
