However far away I will be wild like a child as the time can fly

“Wrinkles should merely indicate where the smiles have been.”  ― Mark Twain BALI, INDONESIA – Whenever a birthday is approaching, I try to sit with myself and go through the things in my life that I am grateful for. The older I get, the less materialistic and more emotionally rooted these things have become. Lately, I…

Out in the stars again, lost in your mind you got the bends

Portugal, Part 2 – I feel like half a year later I am still reeling in the memories of last summer. 2017 was such an immensely transformative year and often I have to remind myself to slow down and catch my breath in order not to lose it. I have always moved faster than my…

“Our bodies hummed with contentment.”

Paris, France – My best friend and I used to run a little food and lifestyle blog – it was part of our self-proclaimed mission to document our many laughter-riddled misadventures together. It was about travel, food, fashion, lifestyle and fitness, and we made a huge effort in trying to maintain it, until we threw…

C’est l’heure où je vais me coucher, Il est cinq heures

Paris, France – If you are an impulsive fire sign like myself, chances are, the word “planning” is almost nonexistent in your everyday vocabulary.

Finally on the other side now and I could see for miles

New Zealand – West Coast / The gift that keeps on giving. Driving around the South Island was even more rewarding than on the North Island. We were blessed with much less rain, and it was just in the nick of time, or else my sun-starved skin was threatening to go on strike and show…

Please don’t flow so fast you little mountain hum

New Zealand – Waikato / On the search since what seems like forever, for something new, always wandering, always wondering, sometimes I ask myself what my feet are searching for. Pushed towards the east and away from the sea, we spent some days driving and driving through rain and fog, hardly escaping the van and…

With eyes open I was having a dream

New Zealand – Auckland / Never in my life would I have pictured myself venturing out to New Zealand. As somebody, who is wildly conflicted about her own place in the world, any place that would require a pre-approved visa upon entry, I had become shy of even daydreams involving foreign lands. You see, the biggest…
