19th February 2021

My journey to understanding the intersectionality of my activism was a long one, and questioning the potential negative impact of where I put my money is a relatively recent concern of mine… So what exactly is ethical banking and ethical investing and why is it now more important than ever before?

Day Trips from Berlin: a Few Ideas

30th September 2020

Day trips from Berlin

Looking for some ideas for day trips from Berlin? Berlin is an incredible place to live, but just like any other totally happening city, there are times when you just need to get away and recharge. We all need a break, and a change of scenery once in a while a great way to find new inspiration. We come back full of energy and ready to take on the world — but not everyone has the time to go on indulgent getaways. Often, though, a day trip is sufficient to give you that much-needed boost, and if you’re living in Berlin there are great destinations not so far away that are just waiting to be explored. Below are my choices of top day trips from Berlin that you can add to your day-tripping list. My preferred transportation method in by train.

CBD Oil for Anxiety: my Experience

20th August 2020

high cbd strains

I’ve been a big fan of the health benefits of CBD oil for over a year now. With a combination of meditation, yoga plus CBD oil, I’ve tamed my anxiety, regulated my sleeping pattern, and got through some pretty nerve-wracking life changes (and a surgery) these past few months. CBD is certainly making the rounds as a buzzword amongst the health crowd at the moment – CBD vape oil, CBD isolate, CBD cream, CBD tables, CBD drip, CBD balm, CBD oil vape pen, CBD gummies — you name it, it exists. Heck, my local pharmacy even has some CBD isolate chocolate bars and lip balms by the checkout. But whether those actually have some high CBD strains with any real health properties or this is just businesses surfing CBD’s explosive popularity, who knows.

Making a Home: my Leesa Bed Review (Advertisement)

31st August 2018

Let’s start this Leesa bed review by stating what’s obvious. I’ve been growing roots in Berlin over the past three years. To a point where I’m now ready to call this damn gorgeous crazy impossible city my home. There once was a time when the thought of having all my belongings fit on the back of my bicycle was reassuring — that way I could push the eject button and ghost at any opportunity. But something, I’m not sure when, shifted.

Travel Nightmare Stories – MY COMPILATION

15th August 2017

In my three years of travel and 30+ countries visited, I have exceptionally not collected any travel nightmare stories. I guess I’ve been lucky. Sure, there were a few scares of impending cavity searches on my way to Israel, or cases of bribery and fake “mandatory” medical examinations (seriously, do the all the visa tell tales have to pertain to body violation?) on my way to Cambodia. But amongst all the uncertainties – and the “don’t mention you’re a blogger” on the way to the Indian embassy – I have been one of the few lucky ducks to not have any of my travels go awry because of a visa SNAFU. Sure, I have had my share of travel nightmare stories but they haven’t been as bad as my fellow travelers.
