It’s the time of the year where people are slowly transitioning from summer excitement to autumn feels. Even though it’s still warm outside and the sun is shining bright, the cozy cafès along the Brandenburger Street are slowly starting to fill up more and more. Keep reading

From Another World

What’s usually just a huge parking lot, turns into a land of junk and treasures over night! At five a.m., when the lights are out and the streets are empty, this place is thriving of life as the first deals are striken. My dad and I were still unloading the car trying to put our stand together when the first interested customers came Keep reading

How Is That Working Out For You?

Being a lazy bum can be a great thing. You have plenty of extra time that you don’t have to spend in the gym (after all, a good book and some food are fine thing, aren’t they?). Also, you give your mind the chance to wander off, to get lost in deep thought and to be inspired.  Keep reading

Thank You, Potsdam

This comes out of the heart of a girl who is absolutely in love with her hometown. Never before have I been in a town where more joy can be found than here in Potsdam.

It’s the tram driver who blinks his front lights and waves his arms up in the air when he passes one of his other fellow drivers. Your fitness trainer giving you motivation Keep reading

Life has its defining moments: Graduating, starting our first job, getting our first paycheck, driving for the first time, moving into our first apartment, falling in love (not in that order of course, but)…. All in all, comparing these milestones with a stranger, you will find yourself with definitely more than one in common. What makes each and every single one special though, is the unique story behind them and the path that led you there.  Keep reading

Rollin’ in an Endless Summer

A while ago, I received a postcard with only three words on it: “Ride a bike”. When I asked for an inspiring card, I had no idea that one like this would find its way into my postbox. “Ride a bike”?! To be honest, I found nothing inspiring about this card at all (at first). I remember looking at it over and over again Keep reading

How I travelled 5 Countries in One Day

After fighting my way through Berlin’s jungle of public transportation, I found myself in a Chinese teahouse unable to decide between a “Golden Monkey”, the “Tear of a Dragon” and the “Mist of a Mountain”.

I believe that the best way to find the deepest appreciation of a place is staying a while to create a new memory. Keep reading

Dear Family

Sometimes I find it hard to give things the time and place they deserve.
So I thought I’d kick off this sunny Monday morning with a few words to the people who matter the most to me. – Yes, I am talking about my family.

I discovered that no one can love as selflessly and unconditionally the way parents do. Keep reading

An Escape to Rostock

P1120588 

What comes to my mind when I think back to when I was about five years old is what an unbelievably happy and carefree childhood I had. –And yet, there were important things to get done each day: The chalk drawing on the street was not going to finish itself! Keep reading
