I thought long what our stay in the second Airbnb “Batman” should be about. Today on a slow Sunday, watching people by the river and after an energizing day on a farm, I read Charles Eisenstein's Story of Interbeing. I guess that’s what Batman was all about. Feeling the connection between us and the place. … Continue reading Interbeing. [Our nomadic life – Batman, 07.03.-07.04.2022.]
We decided to give names to the different Airbnbs and places we would stay at. To be able to visualize them better. In alphabetic order and connected to a movie. So, our first Airbnb ‘A’ became Amelie pretty quickly. We’ve moved out. There’s no apartment to go back to. This is not a holiday where … Continue reading Kingfisher.

In January, Bridget, the cats, and I moved out of the apartment in Berlin. Both of us wrote a few lines about that moment. There was way more tension, stress, and emotion involved than these lines uncover.

I look into the mirror, my reflection is mustering me with curiosity. I look old, crosses my mind. The last 4 years I didn't really celebrate my birthday. I traveled alone to Iceland, spend a day in Los Angeles, made a multiple-day hike, or explored Berlin with Bridget during the first weeks of the pandemic. … Continue reading A new decade in the making.
Breakfast. It’s calm. I just hear the buzzing of the fridge. The cats have left the kitchen after their breakfast while I’m still munching on my musli bowl and cup of coffee. I stand at the window looking into the backyard and to the row of apartment houses across - facing us, facing me. Some … Continue reading In a state of not knowing
Words. I love to use words to describe experiences, anecdotes, and stores to others. I love words so much that I sometimes repeat myself and my girlfriend tells me to please stop talking. Pictures. I remember when Instagram has been "pictures without words". I enjoyed diving into these worlds of others, using my imagination to … Continue reading Reliving the experience. [Across the Alps 2020]
