Italy at its best: Cinque Terre

I bought a wonderful book at the Frankfurt book fair in 2017: it is called "Wanderlust" and presents the most amazing hiking trails in the world. One of the easiest trails of the book is located in Italy in an area protected by the Unesco called "Cinque Terre"; a natural reserve I – at this [...]

Three rules for sustainable shopping

As you probably know, I am trying to make little changes in my life since I found out that we would need two and a half earths if every human on this planet had the same lifestyle as me. I am still finding this very shocking – and in order to remedy that unpleasant feeling [...]

Four things I have learnt from Marc Rebillet

Last week I took one and a half days off of my new job and went to Cologne to see a „concert“ of a weird American You Tube guy called Marc Rebillet who has literally just become (Internet) famous during the past year. While having been greatly entertained, I also took away some learnings from Marc Rebillet’s art and his personality. Read on for more.

Two and a half earths just for me

Two and a half earths. Two and a half! If everybody on this planet lived the way I live, we would need two and a half earths! This seemed totally unbelievable to me at first. I spent the past few years mentally patting myself on the back because I was under the impression I was [...]

Five reasons why you should spend your summer vacation in Croatia (and two why not)

It's not even 8pm and it is already dark outside. I am sitting at home on my couch, sipping tea and trying to cure the inevitable cold I get each year when summers turns to autumn and temperatures drop. What better moment to think back to the awesome summer we had this year! If you are already thinking about next year's summer vacation let me give you five reasons for spending your precious leisure time in beautiful Croatia.

When was the last time you did something for the first time?

You might have noticed that this post's headline is a question – and a very thought provoking one, I would guess. In my impression, we often lose ourselves so much in our daily routine that we forget how important it is to get out of our own comfort zone every once in a while and [...]

Ignorance is bliss or: why stalking never leads to something good

Yes, I admit it: sometimes – during long train rides to Nuremberg all by myself – I tend to do things I am not proud of. A few weeks ago, for example, I watched "Magic Mike XXL" on the way home; a movie about a gang of strippers that features a lot of stupid dialogues [...]

All eyes on Offenbach

When I tell people that I live in Offenbach they usually respond like this: „Ohhh, really? Why?“ – as if living in Offenbach was a bad fate that has somehow befallen me involuntarily. Let me assure you: I decided to move there five years ago very consciously (and sober) and I even enjoy living in [...]

Ridiculously beautiful: The Andaman on Langkawi

Have you ever been to a place that seemed so ridiculously beautiful that you had to pinch yourself to make sure you were not dreaming? I have. And sometimes, when I sit at home on my sofa, back in everyday life, I have a hard time realizing that those vacation pictures (check them out below) [...]

Throwback Friday: Romance in a one-way street

I wrote my very first blog entry in August 2005. I was nineteen, the internet was still relatively new at that time and blog-tools, that one could use for free, were very rare. It was exciting. For every entry I wrote into my live journal I selected a specific song that was listed above the article itself [...]
