Our 6 favourite books this spring

•••
Spring in Berlin is currently taking a serious break, hence I've stocked up on books before summer will swallow me completely. The selection I've piled up is surprisingly deep and perhaps even dark, but every book covers an extremely important issue that I think deserves some attention and wine-fuelled discussions with friends. When I've finished every book,[...]

How Tel Aviv mended my travel-weary heart

•••
It all started at Munich airport last December. I had just come back from the fourth long-haul flight in two weeks with a serious flu and none of meds I’d been throwing in worked. My body was dead tired, I was awake for 24 hours. It was getting late and then my flight to Berlin was canceled and I was supposed to be at a really important video shoot early the[...]

Growing up on the road: A travel memoir

•••
My sister Debbie recently visited me at home in Berlin. She had just finished high school and was about to embark on a summer (and perhaps a life) of adventuring and solo travel. Now she's off to Nairobi, Kenya for three months, followed by an Interrail trip through Eastern Europe. She has always been my little girl and it's so, so, so strange to see her gro[...]

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[...]
