I have a lot of travelgoals. Many places, cultures & people to meet and explore. So I'm happy to share my experiences with you.
awaken yourself to the power of your mind to make things happen. Once you do, the universe will conspire with you to work magic in your life. - The monk who sold his ferrari. (My current favourit book)
find your passion and make money out of it, a life goal everyone should follow…
As I have a lot of passions I started to mind mapping things I love.
There’s traveling, fashion, being creative and pretty everything in connection with the ocean – as I would love to be a mermaid. Suddenly on my trip there appeared the idea of creating my own mermaid bikini line & once I have an Idea, I start turning it into a plan.
So here I am, producing my bikini right now in Bali.
I work with people who make every appointment exciting on a place called paradise which feels like home.
Work is definitly the wrong word in this case, let’s call it create, realize, live, Do what makes me happy.
An island full of breathtakingly beautiful and empty places. I don’t think this place will stay that untouched for a long time.
So, take the chance to explore this island as long as it is still that untouched and experience the local life of Indonesia.
It takes just 30 minutes with a speed boat from Sanur, Bali to Nusa Penida but it feels like you're stepping into another country.
There are almost no tourists, I guess that’s also the reason for all the happy and over-friendly greetings from the locals. I never felt as welcomed to a place as on this island. As soon as you stop on the streets, locals approach you and offers their help.
Just one proper street crosses the Island, as soon as you try to reach the cliffs or the beaches, you have to cross small bumby streets. So be aware of muscle soreness the next day. But I promise you it's worth it!
Every place we’ve visited on this Island was stunning! Mostly we were just speechless from the first moment we arrived and observed the beauty of mother nature in silence.
Bali, the most famous Island in Indonesia. - The perfect place to escape.
Many people come here to relax, forget all the duties back home and enjoy a simple life which is still full of luxury.
Also for us travelers it’s a perfect place to just settle down and get a feeling of home back.
Why? What makes Bali special for it? the good food? sunny days? the beach? lovely people? little costs? the marvelous nature?... All this and a lot more!
But what I think makes Bali different to other Asian places is the perfect mix. The mix of a local and touristy lifestyle and the mix of exciting adventures and a relaxed routine.
While Bali offers a lot of western atmosphere’s with for example food or the facilities, there’s still the option to experience the local culture.
I’ve been frequently asked what made me decide to leave everything behind and start a new life in freedom. So here’s the story about my inspirational moment.
I fell in love with Melbourne. My favorite city in Australia so far. The lifestyle here is really multi-cultural & you can find everything. Nice beaches, lots of good coffee's & restaurants to chill, shopping streets, different sides of cultures & a beautiful nature as well.
There is so much to see and to do that it is impossible to get bored in this City. That’s how I explored the Melbourne lifestyle in 2 Weeks.
Another daytrip to paradise around Perth!
Just 1 hour away by ferry from Fremantle is one of the most popular island on the westcoast called rottnest island.
Definitly a MUST DO, when you're in Perth.
There are 2 options to explore the island. You can rent a bicycle for 30$ or buy a bus ticket for 20£ where u can jump on & off wherever you want.
Popular on this island are the happiest animals in the world, called quokkas, who only exist on this island. It’s almost impossible to not see them there. Also possible to see are sea eagles & whales during the season.
Basically, every single beach on this island looks like paradise! Crystal clear water & just a few people to share the beach with. Most of the people recommend to just do a one daytrip. I think it is totally worth it to stay there overnight.
Belongs to one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever visited!
In Bali we rest some days in canggu. An awesome place. Healthy food, good waves for surfers, & good vibes in the evenings.. After that we went to Ubud, where we visited the rice terraces in tengalang and the monkey forest. Bali is totally different to jawa because of the many tourist. The food and prices are much more international.
Coron is popular for wreck dives and absolutely worth it! Such a nice experience to dive in & outside those wrecks! If you plan to dive in coron, don’t miss to dive in the barracuda lake. Also a cool experience. The special thing there, is that you don’t have to wear a drysuit, because the temperatures varies from 34 to 45 degrees depending on the deepness.
Definitely join a island hopping tour in coron. My opinion, those island are even more beautiful than in el Nido. Totally worth it! The sea is crystal clear and the coralreefs colorfull & alive.
First of all, I want to inform you about the Vipassana and what it is like.
Vipassana is a sort of "insight meditation,” the methodical practice of "seeing things as they really are" by contemplating the four foundations of mindfulness:
The program duration is about 10 Days. There are 7 days total of silence and those were the hardest 7 silent days. During these 7 days, you’re not allowed to talk to anybody or have any eye contact. You can’t use your phone or write in a diary so you just focus on your thoughts and nothing else. But this was not the hardest part. The days started at 4 o’clock in the morning until 9 o’clock in the evening. Breakfast is at 7am, Lunch was at at 11am and that was the last meal. You’re not allowed to eat for the next 20 hours until the next day.
My next plan was to visit kho thao but because of the bad weather and a lot of waves the ferry was canceled and I spontaneously went to koh phangan. But also there the weather was bad for the first 3 days. But as soon the sunshine raised, we used the chance again and rent a scooter. A scooter cost about 4 $ for 24h. So we visited some nice places and restaurants.
After some relaxing days, me and my friend I met in krabi, decided to do a Vipassana meditations retreat for 10 days on a temple in Koh Phangan. If you’re interested about my experience look at the Vipassana Experience blog.
Cinque Terre is a charmant place in italy wich consist of 5 small villages beside the sea. The place is famous for the colourfull houses. A romantic & beautiful place to be. I guess I don't have to mention thatitailian food is deliscious too.
Mykonos is stunning! Everything is white and blue. You can find wonderfull lagunes in Mykonos. I recomend to rent a car to reach some lost places. Also the city has a big charm, specially in the evening. There are a lot of different bars and restaurants.
My first time traveing alone. For one month I went to the beautiful island zanzibar in africa tansania. For 3 Weeks I thaughed english in 3 several nursayschools and one adultclass. It belongs to the best and instructivest time in my life. These kids showed me how less it need to be happy. At the end of this blog you will find the video.
