More grunge and more fun

Hi guys,

Instagram, Facebook, Youtube, Blogs and slowly even Snapchat are full with posts about a heathy Lifestyle. About raw, clean or vegan food, gym exercises and smoothies. Its not new anymore, it started a few years ago and is still on all channels. But what was before that? It seems like everybody ate unhealthy and never did any sport before their "journey", but if we take a closer look most of them already did it before.

I remember the 90`s fitness VHS my mom had but never used, the supermodels of that time showing exercises and tricks how the get healthy. For real? Nothing changed. We just have other channels now, its easier to communicate and stay in touch but in general the things happening on socail media at the moment are nothing else than an easier accessable form of the videos in the 90`s.

I tried it all. Got myself a smoothie maker and used it for a couple of weeks, since then its just there to mix my rasperrys before I put them on a yoghurt. Purchased Kaylas BBG and did it for 7 weeks, everybody told me it would be fun after a while. Not true, I hated it as much as I did on the first day when I stopped. When I moved out of my parents home I bought tons of vegetrables and fruits, just to end up throwing them away because I had no time to eat them before they expired.

In the end? We should all listen to our body and do what feels right. Some of us will have a hard time losing, other ones to gain weight. 50 years ago nobody thought that cigarettes would be that dangerous, so who knows whats wrong with all the "healthy" things we do today.

As long as it feels right, go for it.

I`m a vegetarian since my 6th birthday, when I have time I go horse riding or do yoga. I love chocolate, cheese and rasperrys.
Whats wrong with that? Nothing. Even if it may doesn`t fit into a current trend.

The world will never take my heart

Hi guys,

A few days ago I saw a quote that actually said something I always want to tell people who don`t like to travel or visit the same place over and over again.

"This world offers far too many beautiful places to stay at the same place twice"

We don`t live forever. Maybe 40, 60, 80 or 100 years, who knows, maybe even less. Its our own choice what we do with that time, if we choose to build ourselves a family and buy a house, if we travel around the world and live for the moment or if something else catches our eye.

I want to see the world. Even if its nearly impossible to go everywhere, I have a lifegoal to visit and really "experience" every state in the USA once, to visit every continent and every day a new place I want to explore catches my eye. Sometimes I feel like Im wasting my time going to school and work in a job I have no real passion for, otherwise it may is a good way to learn what I really want.

Wherever live takes me, the only thing I never want to loose is my passion for the unknown and my own freedom to be myself.

I`m alone but I`m not lonely

Hi guys,

When you travel alone, like to do things by yourself and enjoy being on your own, people often think you`re lonely. There is the type that always needs someone by their side, couldn`t imagine living in a flat without any roommates or to go to lunch alone.
And there is me.
The type who loves the independence of being on your own, without someone else you have to care about. Who would never quit an event, a trip or a dream just because nobody wants to join them.
None of them is lonely.
Even when your on your own, it doesn`t mean that you won`t met new people who will give you experience and inspiration. Actually, its the opposite. If you always see your life as yours, do what you want, I feel like you get the chance to meet faces you would have never talked to if you already would have been with someone else. To know and enjoy yourself in a way you wouldn`t even had the time to discover always being around other ones.

If you reach the highest level of happiness on your own, it will be at least as good when your surrounded by people. And it won`t disappear when they are gone.

We are alone
But we're not lonely
No, It's nothing personal
We prefer to do things on our own
And even though nobody knows it
No we're not lonely
No we're raw, and invincible

Travel: Berlin & Tropical Islands

Hi guys,

First destination on my trip last week was Berlin. But I actually only stayed in the city itself for lunch and then took the train to the Tropical Islands hall, where I met a bunch of girls who love BlackMilk as much as I do. For four days we stayed at the Mobile Homes, 10 minutes walking distance of the hall and spent our day in this surreal world. Sadly I don`t have any Pictures of that place, I just didn`t wanted to risk to bring my camera in there as it is like a enormous indoor Swimming pool. If you want to check it out -> here is the link or take a look on my Instagram account.

On monday we went back to Berlin, checked into a hostel ( my first time ) and walked to the Brandenburger Tor/ Memorials. I`ve only seen small parts of this city but I already really like it, I`m planning to go back next year and focus on the citys vibe as much as on the historical aspect. There is no other place with such a moving past, every corner tells its own story and the people there are so openminded, I wouldn`t mind staying there for a few weeks someday. In the evening we went to a Restaurant called "White Trash" and it was bloody amazing! The food was so good and the even had a Tattoo Shop  next to the bar, if you want to see something different on a night out make sure to visit this place. I already had to leave the next morning and had the worst day ever, but I will talk about it next Wednesday in another part of my Travel Diaries.

A need for perfection

A picture with no frame

Hi guys,

Im on the road again. While Im writing this post on my way to Berlin, Im so exited to meet some fellow sharkies at Tropical Islands and to spent some time on my own afterwards in England. 

While waiting at the airport I watched all the people around me being busy, trying to catch their flight or looking for the right Gate. I prefer to fly early in the morning or late in the evening on weekdays, the chance that there are children and nervous tourists is much smaller. Everybody seems to be less stressed on that time of the day. Before boarding, people always stand in row for at least half an hour, rushing to be the first on the plane, just to wait again in the plane itself on the way to their seats. This morning I was the only one still sitting, I wasn't the last one that got into the plane and could easily walk in. Without standing in line, without being too late and completly relaxed.

Half in and half out of the light

Hi guys,

Im currently on my way to London after some amazing days with a bunch of sharkies at Tropical Islands in Berlin.
Its crazy how much you can like people you only just met, they were complete strangers a week ago and the only thing you knew about them was their love for the same clothing brand. I've never seen anything like this before, such a strong bond because of one company that connects us all and I feel like I really made friends for life.

 I can only imagine what would happen if Spell lovers would all get together, like a big gypsy meet up with love and peace. If its already that great with nylon lovers, it must be at least as good with free boho souls. 

I will tell you more about my time in Berlin, at the moment Im just enjoying of my trip and think about the people I already met who found a place in my heart.
