Folk music is blasting from the Bluetooth speakers. We stomp our feet on the ground while the manual mincer grinds and shrieks away. One of us is turning the handle to a constant rhythm, one is refilling meat into the top. One is cheering us on and humming to the tunes. When I asked Astrid … Continue reading Brat.

When Bridget suggested staying a month in Bremen to have easy access to groceries, a bigger train station, and an airport, my mind went to the only time I’d been to Bremen. Which was a very boring experience. I was absolutely surprised by how much I liked the city. Moving out of the Airbnb after … Continue reading Reality Check.

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 2022 – Batman, Windach (Bavaria).]

And instead of starting a long-planned and longed-for one month road trip together which would have been our … Continue reading New chapters. [Our nomadic life 2022 – Leaving Berlin]
Almost exactly 3 years ago I arrived in Berlin after almost 9 months of traveling. Being loaded with new experiences about places, people, and myself. I came back not because I felt ready or done with traveling. I originally thought I wouldn’t come back to Germany for a while. I felt overloaded and still searching … Continue reading Feeling whole.
I hear the soft drops hitting the car‘s roof. The sky turned to greys and grey-blues when the last pink of the Sunset disappears on the horizon. It’s quiet, except the rain drops hitting the roof of my car. I can’t believe how lucky I am. I almost didn’t make it here this weekend, a … Continue reading Regenerating.
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.
