Our 9 favourite Instagrammers in March

•••
It's Insta inspo time again! While winter is still in full swing (at least in Berlin), I've been spending a lot of time reading, watching documentaries or scrolling through Instagram. The latter especially is better than its reputation if you use it responsibly. Here's a list of my current top 9 accounts - thank you for inspiring me, all you guys. The ill[...]

Like a local: Hitting the slopes in Austria

•••
Have you ever thought about how the world would look if everyone traveled as extensively as we do? If home really was a fluctuating concept, something that can be changed and replaced within months? The irony is that I think many of us travel to get a deeper understanding of a culture but that culture obviously needs to be invested in over years and decades.[...]

15 things to do while waiting at the airport

•••
I feel like I’ve spent most of this year at airports - which of course isn’t true - but time seems to pass extra slowly until take-off, right? Well, except for this one time in Frankfurt when I read what must have been a fantastic book and missed the gate change announcement… and the flight. Unfortunately, I can’t remember the book title but man, that was an[...]

Meet the couple who turned a school bus into a tiny home and road tripped America

•••
Selima Taibi and Felix Starck aren't just an ordinary couple: They both lead exceptionally creative lives and aren't afraid to dream big. Most recently, they turned a school bus into a loft and then road tripped America together with their dog Rudi. Felix is a filmmaker ("Pedal the World"), Selima, who is called Mogli most of the time, works as a singer-song[...]

Skylines and Apps: Lost and found in Tokyo

•••
My first time in Asia (as a travel blogger? Scandalous, I know) went by in no time. I had three days to stuff my face with food, get a feel for the world’s largest city, Tokyo, and to try and keep calm during my very first earthquake. Needless to say, just about all my senses were constantly overwhelmed and loved every second! Tokyo feels like the future. It[...]

What I take away from 2016

•••
2016, you sucked balls! I can't even pinpoint exactly what it was apart from the political and social issues, votes and decisions that left an incredibly bitter aftertaste. I started the year in a hut in the mountains in Norway, traveled to seven different countries (and three times to Austria, weird) and was involved in several really cool photography and j[...]

Hitting the road in Curacao

•••
In November, when Berlin had already been hit by the ruthless winter, I had the privilege of escaping to Curacao, a Dutch colonial island in the Caribbean. Part of it is exactly as you'd picture paradise: palm trees, exclusive resorts, and crystal blue waves. On the other hand - and this is the side to Curacao I appreciated a lot more because it was so unexp[...]

How do you travel in an Eco-friendly Way?

•••
Traveling and thinking green may not seem like they go very well together (at least that's what I thought for a long time) but thankfully, Berlin freelancers Anna Schunck and Marcus Werner founded the German online magazine Viertel \ Vor this year and have since taught me otherwise. They have moved out to the countryside in beautiful Brandenburg and are docu[...]
