Wayfaring With Wagner

Hello and Moin! I’m Jordan – the writer, dreamer, and traveler behind Wayfaring With Wagner. To find out more about me, CLICK HERE and to find out more about my blog’s story, CLICK HERE. I currently live in Hamburg, Germany!

During the past four years, I’ve documented everything from my wayfaring adventures, expat woes and triumphs, a multicultural relationship (it’s funny, trust me!), graduate school in Europe x 2, travel tips and lists, and the crazy world of travel blogging!

Below are some of my most popular posts in each of the above categories!

From the mountains of Bulgaria to the fjords of Norway and the waterfalls of Iceland, I’ve been lucky enough to have visited 37 European countries. Below are some of my most popular travel posts!

Expat Woes and Triumphs

Since moving abroad in September 2013, I’ve lived in Germany (Heidelberg), Croatia (Zagreb), Bulgaria (Sofia), Scotland (Edinburgh), and now back in Germany (Hamburg). I’ve learned to navigate the bureaucratic red tape as well as the cultural norms of each country!

That guy on the right? I affectionately call him the Prince. He’s from Germany and we met through mutual friends while I was living in Heidelberg. While it isn’t always sunshine and rainbows due to the language barriers and different nationalities, the laughter definitely (and always) outweighs the tears!

I’ve been lucky enough, and fortunate enough, to earn my M.A. and MSc from European universities. My M.A. in American Studies (emphasis in Political Science) is from Universität Heidelberg in Germany. I earned my MSc in International Business and Emerging Markets from the University of Edinburgh in Scotland. To see why and how to study in Europe, read below!
