About my life in Bali.

[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…

Bali: Vegan & Vegan-Friendly Café/Restaurant Recommendations

[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…

Finland – 3 weeks of solo travelling.

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…

Instagram Q&A – Your questions, my answers. Pt. 2

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…

Memories of 2017

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.…

Liebster Award – Questions & Answers

I got nominated by Sandra from Lana Lifestyle to join in the “Liebster Award”. <3 It’s a German blogger game but I decided to give the answers in German and English as a lot of my readers don’t understand German. I’ll start with English, you can find German below. What makes you happy? There are so many things but I think it’s mainly the small non-materialistic things: a good book, beautiful music, nature, running, surfing, animals, doing something for others, feeling loved, delicious food.. If there was one thing you could change about yourself, what would it be? I would…

To be free.

So far in my life there had never been a point where I loved everything I do – except for when I was a child, I guess (although even back then there had been days I didn’t wanna go to kindergarten). In school I had to do stuff I couldn’t stand all the time. After school there was a phase when I had nothing to do except for a part-time job at Subway (actually my favourite job so far) but on the side had the pressure to write applications and go to job interviews. I didn’t enjoy the job I…

Instagram Q&A – Your questions, my answers.

I asked you to ask me some questions on Instagram a while ago and actually got quite a few.. I’m going to answer them in German and English as I got questions in both languages. Oh and by the way, before I start: I also have a Tumblr account (plantifulalexandra) so there is always the option to ask me something there, even anonymously. So, let’s start answering.. Why and why did you start with Instagram? I actually scrolled down to the start of my account for this: I started in May 2015. And why? Well, I’ve been looking through Instagram already for…
