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 [...]

The one time I was unreasonable or: Two nights at the Marina Bay Sands

Some things are really hard to justify: A third piece of chocolate cake on a single afternoon, staying in bed after having slept twelve hours already, skipping the gym in order to binge-watch the third season of "Love" on Netflix – and spending six hundred Euros on two nights in a hotel in a city [...]

Hot stuff in Singapore

Traveling large distances always seems very magical to me. You step on a plane, wait for a couple of hours and end up someplace totally different – for example in Singapore, if you're lucky. Singapore is way more than just a stop-over city. During my 3-week vacation in March I have spent seven days and [...]

Leadership skills or: lessons for life I learnt from Salsa dancing

Last Friday night I did something very unusual: I went Salsa dancing. After returning home from work I quickly changed clothes, picked up my fifteen-year-old dancing shoes (cream-colored with a heel hight of ten centimeters and slightly worn out) from the back of my closet, stuffed them into my handbag and – after having had [...]

Minimum viable dates (and what to expect from them)

Everybody loves Spaghetti This week I had dinner with some colleagues (mixed Gyoza, Sushi and half a piece of Gateau au chocolat at iimori Gyoza-Bar, in case you are wondering). One of those colleagues at the table was Dennis (this is not his real name, obviously). Dennis is very active when it comes to dating [...]
