Hi there, I'm Carolin, the founder and traveller soul behind Breathing Travel. I was born in Germany and raised by my parents in a lovely small country town among chickens and cornfields. At the age of 16, I traded everything I knew for kangaroos and surf beaches and moved to Australia for a year to go to high school. My life has never been the same again and I am forever grateful for this opportunity.
Ever since the road has been my home. With 19, I extensively backpacked through Australia, road-tripped around Australia in a van, worked in a hotel in Perth, planted Strawberries on the Sunshine Coast and sold German pretzels in a bakery in Brisbane. I urged to see more. I snorkelled with the beautiful fish in Fiji, snowboarded through New Zealand and conquered the highest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai.
Over the years, I have lived both in Singapore and Peru and travelled extensively around Southeast Asia. I visited the mysterious temples of Bali, jungle trekked through wild Borneo, sat between chickens on a local bus in Vietnam and witnessed the sunrise at Machu Picchu in Peru.
