Photo Essay: The Best of February 2015

Back in 2012 when I started this blog, I began researching what kind of blog series I should have. Because apparently, a blog needs a weekly series, right? At least I seemed like that to me. Basically every blog I’ve been following has, or has at least used to have, a weekly (photo) series. For many […]

On Being Content

When I look around, everyone seems to be so ambitious. Whether it’s people I barely know, or my closest friends, everyone seems to be striving toward something: To lose a few pounds, to graduate magna cum laude, to find the dream job, to gain more Instagram followers, to find the love with that everlasting spark. Being surrounded […]

Eat, Drink, See: My New Favorites in Berlin

It took me a while until I understood what fascinates people with Berlin. Berlin is not the kind of city you fall in love with at first sight because it’s so beautiful. But once you looked behind the facade of all the ugly concrete post-war buildings, you can understand why people from all over the world keep […]

Photo Essay: Winter Sightseeing in Lower Saxony

I feel like I start every other blog post I write during the months of November to February with complaining about the weather. I know, you are probably bored with it. But, you know, winters in Central Europe can be really tough sometimes. Before Christmas it is still somewhat easy to accept that colors, light, and warmth […]

“I dreamed a dream my life would be…” — these are the famous words Fantine sings in Les Miserables when she realizes that her life has absolutely not turned out the way she thought it would. Of course, I’m not comparing myself to Fantine’s horrible fate. But her words stuck with me nonetheless: I was 16 years old […]

Winter in Germany via Instagram

It’s no secret that I’m not a winter lover – especially not when it comes to those annoyingly gloomy Central European winters, when it feels like all colors are faded and all sounds are muted. Most of the time, winters in Germany are just plain gray in gray. Wind, freezing rain, and sunsets in the […]

Photo Essay: Rome in Black and White

Back when I still wanted to write a dozen or more review posts to end 2014, a “Best 14 photos of 2014″ was definitely something on my agenda. I know I’ve been saying this ever since I first started stealing the boyfriend’s dSLR back in late 2012, but the last year was an important year for […]

Of Past Years and First Times

I always get a little nostalgic when the new year about to begin. I sort of like clinging to the old year and remember what happened. At the same time, I like to imagine what the next year will be like — always hoping that it will be (even) better than the last one. A […]
