When I was younger I always said that I never wanted to be self-employed because I thought that means owning some kind of firm or shop in a certain location. The whole working online concept wasn’t really a thing back in the early 2000s. So I thought having your own business means being bound to a certain location and that it also means a lot of risk, investment, responsibility working 24/7. In Germany we use the word „selbstständig“ for being self-employed which translates to „selfalways“. I remember my parents always telling me: you work for yourself, you work around the… Read More »Employee vs Self-Employment
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?
[Werbung, da Firmennennung / Advertisement] I already left Bali 3 months ago after staying there from the end of May until the end of August so I’m a bit late but I still wanted to write a blogpost about my experiences in Indonesia, mainly in Canggu, Bali. While being there and also still after I got quite a few questions about how I like it, what I do there, if it’s easy and safe to travel there,.. so I want to share my experiences. Why did I travel to Bali? I actually didn’t plan on staying in Bali that… Read More »About my life in Bali.
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.
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.
This week I asked you to leave me some questions for a Q&A here on my blog. So here are my answers to your questions: 1. What are you most excited about now that you quit your job? You would probably think of something like “travelling, finding my dream job,..” but no. Actually for me the most exciting thing is to have the whole day for myself, to wake up thinking “Ok, so what am I gonna do today?”, to be able to go for a run when the weather is good, to say yes to events and meeting people just… Read More »Instagram Q&A – Your questions, my answers.

2017 is over and 2018 is here.. how quickly can a year go by, seriously? To me, this past year felt like the shortest one ever so far. However, my last blogpost has been about 2017, this one is all about 2018! Last night I went through my list of resolutions for 2017 and while I didn’t stick to all of them, it definitely could have been worse. This time I don’t want to list a lot of resolutions, just a few that are really important to me. So these are the things that I truly want to work on… Read More »New Year’s Resolutions – 2018, I’m ready for you.
The end of the year has almost come.. time to take a look back. 2017 has been so different from what I thought it would be. At the end of 2016 I thought this new year is going to be MY year. That I would quit my job, spend the winter outside of Germany and so much more. But well, not really.. in fact, 2017 hasn’t been much different from 2016 and quite uneventful. No big changes happened – no travels, no new job, no new relationship,.. Anyway, I think every year shapes you and your life in a certain way.… Read More »Memories of 2017
[Enthält Werbung/Contains Advertising] I said goodbye to coffee, oatmeal, chocolate, nut butter, pancakes and all my other favourite foods for 5 days from 21th to 25th November because of a 5-day juice fast. For the fast I decided to use the juices from www.green-detox.de because I loved their products when researching for different companies. They offer a lot of different treatments. 1 day, 3 days, 5 days,.. and also with different products. I got my delivery on time as promised and felt very well supported during my fast. I chose the 5-day treatment with 4x 500ml green juice, 1x 250ml… Read More »My 5-Day Juice Cleanse Experience
