I’m Seb. Welcome and thanks a lot for checking out Between Distances!
Growing up in Mexico holding a US passport and surrounded by family from Europe always made me curious about other countries. When I was 19 I went on my first trip around Europe, and decided immediately upon my return that all I wanted to do was experience the world the best I could, so I left. Thirteen years later, my interest in the world has only grown—and continues to do so with every new country or even city I visit. Hence the name of the blog: I’m torn between that which I’ve left behind and what’s ahead of me. I live between distances.
I hold a Master’s degree in Eastern European History from the University of Heidelberg and like to thoroughly research my articles. I like to travel rough, hitchhike, interact with locals over a beer or ten, and explore as much as I can. Other interests of mine include literature, soccer, good times, and Death Metal—all of which will feature in my articles from time to time.
Between Distances is a blog with a Punk DIY ethos. No risk, no fun. Glad you’re part of the adventure! Please do support me by following Between Distances on Facebook and Instagram!
