Today we have had a wonderful sunny day in Münster. For weeks, I had planned to do a small hiking tour but I never really felt in the mood and with the right energy to do so. I’m really not such an active person anyhow… some yoga movements in the morning is pretty much all I do. But my goal was to finally go on some walking tour and explore the surroundings. I already live in Münster for over six…

The last months have been quite challenging for a lot of us and so different to most of us. It also took me quite a while to get adjusted to the „new normal“. On the one hand, I somehow though enjoyed staying at home without feeling the pressure of having an active lifestyle.

On the website of David’s Tea, they describe this tea as follows: „From the first sip you’ll…

It was such a nice trip and in addition, the weather was just amazing. I found some cool spots and places and had a great time exploring the city. Where I stayed: Schanzenviertel through airbnb. I can highly recommend to stay in this…

I just came back from two weeks of business travel in China. This time, our schedule was super tide and I still felt the jetlag from my previous trip to Chicago for a little while. So after hitting the Qingdao Beer Festival (the little brother of the German Oktoberfest!) right after my arrival, I was ready to appreciate the few quiet moments and quiet places which we discovered along our trip through China. After a few days in Qingdao, we…
