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. [Our Nomadic Life 2022 – Casblanca]
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. 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]

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.
https://vimeo.com/486721408 I remember, while growing up, my grandma was around almost all the time, taking care of everything, especially after my granddad had passed away too early. She prepared lunch for my dad and my uncle 5 times a week, every week for over 30 years. When we ran up the stairs and passed her … Continue reading San Francisco. A belated dream.
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]
I am staring at my opponent, focusing on every tiny move he makes and trying not to move myself. He looks straight at me with his perfectly round eyes and the bright orange iris. ‘Don’t blink or you will miss it’, I tell myself. I forget about the sun that was shining a bit too … Continue reading Do they blink? [Roadtrip around Norway #1]
