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[...]

Meet the young Caribbean couple who run a farm in Curacao

•••
When I visited Curacao last week, I bumped into Josh and Femi Peiliker, a young couple who decided to move back to their home country after having lived and studied in Amsterdam for five years. When you're from a tiny Caribbean island and in your mid twenties, that in itself is quite unusual. But not just that: They also decided to start a farm and a farm-to[...]

17 questions to ask yourself now and again

•••
There's something about autumn that always draws my attention to the important issues that I was busy pushing away during summer. Future stuff, head and heart stuff, "priority" stuff. So as I was sitting in a Kreuzberg cafe last Sunday (it was raining of course), I started scribbling a couple of questions that I would set out to find answers for this season.[...]

Exploring Slow Food in Carinthia, Austria

•••
Are you a foodie? Do you know where your food comes from? I went on a trip to Carinthia to learn more about slow food and how to incorporate a healthy relationship with food into my busy daily routine (that usually doesn't leave a lot of time for hours and hours of cooking). Now this has been my second trip to Carinthia in just three months and I've been [...]

How to squeeze a full hiking trip in the Alps into one weekend

•••
A lot of things in life don’t always go to plan and that’s the fun of it, usually. Two friends of mine and I had been planning a week-long hike in the Austrian Alps for months, we sent round pictures of preparations and details of the exact route in a dedicated WhatsApp group and couldn’t wait for that well-deserved break. Then both of them became ill, I [...]

24 hours in Munich

•••
Munich and I never really clicked. I grew up visiting parts of my family there in the summer, then came back for interviews and job stuff. I never really took the time to actually explore it and forget the stereotypes that have  accumulated in my head over the years. In my mind, Munich was snobby, clean and boring. That's by no means the full picture! So whe[...]

Why we should all care about what happens after Brexit

•••
I always took the EU for granted. I took the political stability for granted, I took the travels for granted, the invisible borders, I took the cultural exchange for granted, the festivals, the food, the music, I took the internships in Brussels for granted, I took the relative peace for granted, I took the freedom that spanned way over borders for granted. [...]

Splurging on life: A long weekend in Carinthia

•••
Carinthia has it all: lush mountains, crystal-blue lakes, Austrian cuisine and the hotel beds that will turn you into a different person. I never have an easy time deciding between a holiday by the lake or in the mountains because both make me happier than just chilling at the beach - and both have their unique perks. Thing is, sometimes good things are s[...]

“Mom I’m fine” - How one world traveler is earning his son of the year badge

•••
I’m sure none of us have ever come across overprotective parents in our lives. Like, how do you even spell that word? Jonathan Quinonez (and his Mom) are from Mexico. From the beginning of this year, he decided 27 years would be a good age to start a completely new life and travel the world. Good guy. #skydiving #sky #MomImFine #skylovers #mexico #[...]
