Banana Bread with Nuts & Chocolate – extra fluffy.

Happy Sunday! <3 The perfect day for some baking, right? As I’m not that big of a baking fan I usually don’t bake a lot and if I do I often try to be done with it as quickly as possible. However, this time I’d really been in the mood for baking so the other day when I was all alone at home I went into the kitchen at 10pm, turned on some nice music and started making banana bread as I had a bunch of super ripe bananas in the fridge and hadn’t made banana bread in quite a…

Homesick? What I miss about Germany.

When being away from your home country for a long time you’ll always carry a bit of homesickness within your heart, no matter where in the world you are. Of course I can only speak for myself here, maybe others feel completely different. I truly do miss Germany (or just Europe in general) all the time after not having been there for almost 14 months now. This doesn’t mean I’m miserable all day long thinking about how much I miss Germany, I don’t even feel sad about not being in Germany. Yes, sometimes when I look through photos from Germany,…

Cinnamon Apple Pancakes

This Sunday I felt like having some cinnamon apple pancakes. So far I never added cinnamon to my pancakes but somehow I came up with this idea today. As it’s getting colder here in Australia now I just crave all the foods I’d normally have in German autumn and winter. It’s still so strange for me to live in a country where the seasons are working the other way round. For 5 pancakes you will need: 1 apple handful of walnuts 5 tbsp of whole grain flour 150ml plantbased milk maple syrup cinnamon For the dough cut up the apple…

What farmwork in Western Australia has taught me.

My last days of farmwork in Western Australia have come so I decided to share some of my learnings from this time with you. I’ve had 2 different jobs here. The first one was in the shearing industry, I worked as a rousy in a crutching team which basically means picking up and sorting wool all day long. My second job which I’m still currently in is driving a tractor during seeding season. So here we go.. what farmwork has taught me: It’s never too late to learn something new, it’s possible to work in a job you have no…

30 and… lost?

When I was younger I always thought that by the age of 30 I’d have my life “figured out”. Well, let me tell you.. I turned 30 last year and I feel more lost in life than I ever have before. I’m not gonna lie, often I feel like I’m a failure, I honestly do. Deep inside I know it’s not true but seeing what others my age or younger are doing I’m like “look at them, look what they’ve achieved, how they make their dreams come true, make money, start a business, travel to amazing places.. and what are…

Life Update – April 2019

On Instagram I asked you what topics you’d be interested to read about on my blog and I got a few people asking me about what I’m doing right now, how long I’m gonna stay in Australia, what the plan is. To be honest, there’s not too much going on right now and I’m pretty sure my life looks a lot more interesting online than it actually is, haha. Anyway, here we go.. Where am I right now? After 4 months in Queensland I flew over to Western Australia end of January and right now I still live in a…

Why I ditched the vegan label.

First of all: This will probably be the longest blogpost I’ve ever written but please make sure to read it all if you want to understand where I’m coming from. After you’ve done that feel free to judge me or unfollow me on social media if you still feel like doing so. Thank you. Oh and don’t worry, this is not the next “my vegan diet made me sick that’s why I quit” kind of story and it also has nothing to do with other vegans who’ve recently quit veganism but with all the personal changes I went through the…

Ethical, Sustainable, Organic – organicbasics.

[Werbung / Advertisement, discount code below] “We think that the fashion industry is a real dirty bastard.” That’s what organicbasics says on their website and I agree. There are so many bad things going on in the fashion industry from using unsustainable fabrics to inhumane working conditions and even child labour. Fortunately more and more brands want to see a change happening in this industry and produce sustainable and ethical clothes. Personally I like to buy most of my clothes second hand if possible but I can’t say no to supporting ethical brands and enjoying some new beautiful clothes with…

Outback Australia, an unexpected experience.

I’ve been pushing off writing this blogpost for quite a while now. I really feel like sharing my experience of living in the Australian outback. On the other hand I’m not too sure what to talk about as there isn’t too much happening out here – unless you travel around a lot maybe which I don’t. I feel that there’s been a lot more happening and changing inside of me than around me. So a lot of what I’ve seen and experienced here is quite personal and I don’t want to talk about everything to be completely honest with you.…

How do I afford to travel so much?

 „How do you afford to travel so much?“ A question I get quite regularly so I’m touching upon this topic as I like to talk openly about these things and I always appreciate it when other people do. First of all: No, I’m not rich, I don’t have rich parents and no one but me pays for my travels. Before doing lots of travelling this year I haven’t really been anywhere for 2 years after my last trip to Morocco in 2016. Back then I finished studying, got a job and stayed in that job (which I hated btw..) for…
