When you live abroad, there is one thing that suddenly becomes a regularity: goodbyes. Whether you are going back home to visit family and friends or someone is coming to visit you, you know that at the end you will have to say goodbye to them again. I think this is probably the most difficult … Continue reading The Hardest Part of Living Abroad?
Yes, it has been a while. It's been just over a year since I last posted on this blog. And almost every single day of that last year I've been unhappy about not posting. Yes, seriously. The writing guilt haunted me pretty much every day. "Why didn't you just sit down and write, then?" you … Continue reading Where it began.
Trying to find reoccurring patterns around us, seeing the 'dance' of nature... this is this week's photo challenge! Two days ago, I went on a day trip to the coast of the Baltic Sea. Living in Hamburg, the beach is very close; it takes us only about an hour by car to get there. I … Continue reading Weekly Photo Challenge: Dance.
As so often, my contribution to the weekly photo challenge is a little last minute, but still on time! And that's what counts, after all... isn't it? This week's word is harmony, and one of the most harmonious places I could think of in Hamburg is definitely the Japanese garden in the big park in … Continue reading Weekly Photo Challenge: Harmony.
Several weeks ago, actually at the beginning of February, I was tagged by Basant She in her 'My Monthly Memories' blogging event. At least, I think she tagged me. Or told me about it in a comment. I can't exactly remember. But none of this matters, as long as I've heard about it, right? Because I … Continue reading My Monthly Memories: February.
I love this weeks prompt! Capturing your state of mind in a photo can be such a creative challenge, especially because I believe there is never only one thing going on in your mind, but a multitude of emotions. As some of my readers may already know, at the moment I'm looking for a job, … Continue reading Weekly Photo Challenge: State of Mind.
Apart from visiting all iconic sights and memorials in Berlin, which you can read about here, of course, I had to visit all the great coffee shops in the capital, as well. Being the prepared coffee nerd that I am, I made a list of all the coffee shops I wanted to visit and also … Continue reading A Trip to Berlin, Part Two: Coffee & Stationery.
Last week I went to Berlin for a few days! Although Hamburg is really close to our capital (it's only a 3-hour bus ride away), I don't go there very often... The last time I visited was for New Years Eve 2013/2014, so that's a little while ago. But as my boyfriend visited me in … Continue reading A Trip to Berlin, Part One: History.
Even though in the last two weeks my blog has been a little quiet, I don't want to miss out on the Weekly Photo Challenge! I also promise to write some personal posts soon, I've got a few ideas already. This week's theme is seasons, either related to the weather or to our current season … Continue reading Weekly Photo Challenge: Seasons.
It's already Thursday night and I still haven't posted a photo for this weeks' photography challenge. And this is simply because this week, I somehow didn't find any inspiration for the prompt... Inspired by this quote, the prompt was to find any kind of artwork and replicate it some way; “Life imitates art far more … Continue reading Weekly Photo Challenge: Life Imitates Art.
