#day365 – champagne shower

This is it. Done. 365 first times. One year of doing, seeing, learning something new every day. I somehow can’t believe it’s over now. Wasn’t it yesterday when I was sitting on my balcony writing my first blog post? Time flies, friends! It was an incredible year, my 30th year of age. And I’m able […]

#day347 – creating a like-list

A lot of rain made it possible to read a new book in two days. A book about a grandpa, who started living his life with 77. As many old people do, he figured out way too late, that life is too short to waste your time. He tries to find peace with his family […]

#day328 – playing stamp tetris

I wrote many postcards in my life. Means I’ve seen many different stamps as well. It’s not uncommon that a postcard via airmail needs two or three stamps. But they’re nowhere as big as in Colombia. Seriously, they cover half of the postcard. The funny thing is, when I was sitting in the yard in […]

#day313 – hostel toilet wisdom

Hostels use different explanations to remind us western tourists why you shouldn’t throw toilet paper into the toilet. It’s basically because it blocks the toilet. Canal systems are too small to handle anything that doesn’t come out of our body. I haven’t heard of the consequence yet, my current hostels uses. Every time I flush […]

#day162 – Spanish love letter

I received a wonderful gift today. A necklace with a little key along with a letter full of wise words. Wonderful lines in Spanish, my new favorite language. Dedicated to me, but relevant for all of us, that’s why I want to share it with you. I try to translate it as good as possible, but […]

#day153 – happy thoughts en Español

Walking through Palermo tonight I spotted a funny quote of Oscar Wilde on a chalk board in front of a bar. And I was already able to translate it. Wohoo. My Spanish grew rapidly the last three weeks. Yes yes. Nevertheless I googled the English version to be a 100 percent sure, I got the right […]

#day128 – sentimental thoughts in Munich

Winter vacations are over again. I’m a bit sad. I spent a whole week with people I didn’t know before, but we all get quite along with each other. I better have to say we spent a really funny and intensive time together. I sometimes thought it’s a bit like a social experiment: put 12 people togehter in a house […]

#day108 – welcoming 2017 on a rooftop in Schöneberg

My view for welcoming 2017 couldn’t be better. On a rooftop terrace in Schöneberg, overlooking the city and opposite a house with the idiom “thoughts become things”. Hello? That’s for sure the best hint to start a new year. A forward-looking idiom. A motivation to create something, to live your dreams, to be brave and get things […]

#day101 – registration for the Listserve

Have you ever heard of the Listserve? A friend of mine told me about the project some weeks ago and I was immediately keen. Due to busy days I forgot to register myself. A more or less relaxed Christmas time finally allowed me to busy myself with it today. It’s actually only an email submission. […]

#day98 – writing a letter to my 13-year-old-me

Saalfeld, December 22nd, 2016 Dear Resi, I know times are hard right now. Many other same-aged girls are fancy dressed, already in love with a cool guy or have at least big boobs. And you? The only guy you’re interested in, is your male puppet. Your growing breasts are something, you await more than eagerly. […]
