wanderlust in our DNA

I like to think that there is something in our blood, our souls, our very beings that make so many of us so in love with new places, so eager to travel and visit and explore. But there is something equally rooted that instills a love for our hometowns or at least our homes - the places we were born and raised. And no matter how fervently we dream of far-away cities, maybe the most beautiful thing of all is our own towns. (A video I put together):

I'm Kinga, a video-maker - because it combines my two passions, photography and words - and a blogger. I write, I read, I over-think, I dream of living across the ocean in London while learning to love the city I live in. (You can frequently find me here, on my youtube channel.)


  1. this is beautiful! it makes me want to visit chicago properly...I've been there countless times in the airport, but I've never had the chance to actually explore the city.
    ps fernweh is pronounced "fairn-vay"...german pronunciation is tricky sometimes ;)

    1. I've been wondering for a long time how to pronounce Fernweh. :) And I probably still won't remember. ;) But I *love* the sound of it...

  2. I know I already commented on the video itself, but I thought a comment was necessary to welcome you in on your first Fernweh post! :) Loved the video, and I can't wait to see more posts from you in the future!

  3. This is lovely, Kinga! I'm looking forward to more of your posts here in the future! :)
