I have been living in my flat now for a year and a half and while it truly feels like a home to me, there are certain bits and pieces of my flat I feel the urge to change all the time. This is mostly driven by the fact that we have rented a fully furnished apartment, which is a fairly common thing to do in a city like London. However, it makes it incredible hard to feel at home, especially if there are a lot of items you would have not chosen for your apartment yourself. While we cannot change all the furniture or the kitchen, there are some easy tricks and tips on how to make your flat feel like a home… read more
To me, there‘s nothing really more inspiring and more energizing than traveling. It’s with no doubt one of my greatest passions. I love exploring new places, diving into the unknown and learning about new cultures. My recent trip to Sri Lanka left me feeling recharged and hungry for more trips… I always love reading other people’s travel plans for the upcoming year and as I have quite a few already lined up for this year, I thought it’s fun to jump on the wagon and share mine with you. So here we go…
Well, let’s start with all the places I already been to in 2018? While the year is still in its early months and resolutions are still fresh in one’s mind, I already made a few nice trips. In January, we spent a family weekend in Hamburg to celebrate my nephew’s 1st bday. February called for a weekend with my girls in Cologne for some carnival & quality time, before I headed home to surprise my Paps for his birthday.
Can you believe that we are already half way through January? Somehow I haven’t fully realized yet that we are actually in 2018 and the last months of the past year went by in what felt like a blink of an eye. It was super quiet here in the recent weeks. Ok fair enough, it has been quiet here actually for months. For various reasons which I don’t want to bore you with (read: I was busy enjoying life & working)! Since I’m not really one to make ground breaking New Year‘s Resolution each year and my list mainly comprises the same items like the ones of most likely 90% of the western population, I thought the beginning of the new year is the perfect excuse to tell you about how my life in 2017 has looked like instead.
As you know, 2016 was all about finishing Uni before I packed my bag pack and left on an amazing trip around the world. I’ve collected so many amazing memories and experiences, that I still smile and feel an instant relief of happiness inside me when I think about my trip. I came back and started my first proper full-time job at the end of the year. So, what was 2017 all about? If I were to put one word next to it, it would be growth. I feel like I have grown in so many ways during the last 12 months, which makes me super happy and pretty proud at myself. Let’s split this post in three main categories: London, Life, Work.
