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… Read More »What farmwork in Western Australia has taught me.
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… Read More »30 and… lost?
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… Read More »Life Update – April 2019
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… Read More »Why I ditched the vegan label.
[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… Read More »Ethical, Sustainable, Organic – organicbasics.
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.… Read More »Outback Australia, an unexpected experience.
„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… Read More »How do I afford to travel so much?
A few months ago I talked about why I’m not practicing intermittent fasting. In case you wanna read about this first, you can find the blogpost here. However, sometimes your eating habits change because of your current life situation or just because you choose to try something new. So actually right now I’m kinda practicing intermittent fasting by accident, just that it’s not breakfast I leave out but dinner. Before you judge and say it’s unhealthy, I only do it to lose weight etc. – wrong, that’s not the case at all. First of all: I actually never got the… Read More »Intermittent Fasting? Diet Update.
[Werbung / Advertisement] After spending the past 3 months in Canggu, Bali, I would like to share with you the places I’ve eaten at to give you some ideas about where to go for food if you’re vegan and plan on visiting Bali. I also got inspired by others who shared their experiences with vegan cafés and restaurants while staying in Bali. I think it’s super helpful and I’m always grateful to find some recommendations when travelling to a new place. Just so you know: To most of the more “fancy” cafés and restaurants I got invited but not to… Read More »Bali: Vegan & Vegan-Friendly Café/Restaurant Recommendations
Finland – why Finland? A question I heard countless times this month.. I know it’s not the most popular country to visit. It’s up in the North, so no hot weather or fancy white beaches. What you get instead: Lots of beautiful forests, lakes and stillness. Well, I love the North. I already travelled to Sweden, Denmark and Norway before but Finland was still missing. I always wanted to visit Finland, it’s as if this country was calling my name. I think my interest in Finland actually started with my love for metal music and with listening to lots of… Read More »Finland – 3 weeks of solo travelling.
