The Best 2021 Retreats for Couples

13th April 2021

Couples who travel together stay together – as the old saying goes. Although I’m not quite a prime example of that myself. So how about going on retreats for couples together?

Not only does a couple holiday allow you to create some amazing memories with your other half, but it also helps to increase communication, trust and intimacy in a relationship. Especially if the trip you’re taking is a specialised retreat for couples.

In the Buff at Kitkat Berlin

28th March 2021

I remember being at my Couchsurfing host Laura in Milan in preparation for my arrival to Berlin, about five years ago. She happened to be living between the two cities and spending a lot of her weekends in Berlin and kept yapping on about how free-spirited Berlin was. Specifically, she mentioned several times how wonderful it was that people were just strutting totally nude in clubs like Berghain and Kitkat Berlin, getting it on in public as casually as you’d sip on a beer on a rocking chair on the porch of the Marina back where I’m from.

What is Kriya Yoga?

23rd March 2021

The technique of Kriya Yoga is an ancient practice that was revived in the East in 1861 when Mahavatar Babaji taught the technique to his disciple Lahiri Mahasaya. It was then brought to the West in 1920 by Paramahansa Yogananda and popularised in his 1946 book ‘Autobiography of a Yogi’ — which is often cited as one of the most important spiritual books of the 20th Century.

The Essential Vegan Grocery Store List

21st March 2021

These days, every grocery store is also a vegan grocery store.

But of course, a vegan grocery list is not your average grocery list. I’ve been vegan for over a decade, and navigating grocery stores and eating out has definitely gotten easier over the years. There certainly was no vegan grocery store back in the days. These days where I live in Berlin, there’s a fully vegan store near me called Veganz and I consider myself the luckiest vegan alive. For everything else, my favourite online grocery store for vegan groceries is definitely iHerb.

My German Nude Spa Experience at Vabali

16th March 2021

I fell in love with being in a German nude spa at Vabali spa berlin.

I know some of my German friends would roll their eyes at me for saying that Germans love themselves a bit of mixed gender nudity. Ahh yes, the German nude spa topic, here we go. But upon visiting vabali, I think they totally do. If you’re not familiar with the Freikörperkultur, of FKK (free body culture), chances are you will after spending some time in Germany. At the very least, you will have heard of a nude spa Germany one way or another. And while some would simplify that the FKK movement was born as a form of resistance against the East German regime, nudism in Germany has its roots way further in history.

Yoga Retreat Costa Rica: Where to go

The mystical Central American nation of Costa Rica is a place of stunning and lush jungle scenery, jaw-dropping beaches and an altogether welcoming country where you can lose yourself in the mists of ancient time and find yourself all over again.
