Pareto rule(s)

By | August 29th, 2016|Reisen|

Vilfredo Federico Pareto (born as Wilfried Fritz Pareto, sounds less sexy) was an Italian born 1848, who discovered that usually 80 % of a result is determined by only 20 % effort, whereas the remaining 20 % require 80 % more effort to be accomplished - cheers to all perfectionists ;) Unfortunately I also once [...]

Travelers’ Century Club

By | August 26th, 2016|Reisen|

When I heard of the TCC for the first time a couple of years ago I had around 50 countries on my list and was immediately clairaudient, as I already had set the goal to reach the 100 country mark by age 35. And if this enables you to join a "special" club of travel-addicted [...]

Just meeting people

By | August 24th, 2016|Reisen|

I once again experienced another nice encounter. Actually I only wanted to spend a calm moment alone on a bench close to Red Square in Moscow to finally extend my knowledge of Russian language using a vocabulary book when suddenly I was addressed by an older, typically Russian looking lady which I almost considered a [...]

Local food & street food

By | August 24th, 2016|Reisen|

An especially delicious aspect of travel is trying out local cuisine. Hereby I usually prefer dished and locations which and where locals eat meaning preferably in small restaurants or even food cookshops on the street.   This is not only absolutely delicious but also cheap and depending on the country also very healthy. And while [...]

By | August 20th, 2016|Reisen|

I play guitar and even was a drummer in a punkrock band during my wild youth (nobody would believe me that nowadays). Therefore I totally enjoy to listen to street musician all over the world. Just recently I listed to several musicians in the streets of St. Petersburg and Moscow and was totally excited about [...]

Mein Friseur Tick

By | August 13th, 2016|Reisen|

I do admit that I generally don't like to visit the hairdresser - at least in Germany. On one side my hair is just growing too fast (unfortunately not anywhere any longer lol), on the other side it is just consuming time and money and usually is quite boring. Abroad it is the complete opposite! [...]

How can one learn that many languages?

By | August 12th, 2016|Reisen|

My usual answer - in theory everybody can! Alike all things in life it mostly depends on goal setting and focus. After graduation in business economies in 2006 age 24 I spoke three languages: German, English and French. Everybody who mastered German A-levels is automatically at the same step at the age of 18-19. My goal in [...]

LoHo lifestyle

By | August 9th, 2016|Reisen|

Don't worry, I won't start to write about current fashion trends like being a Hipster or so. I just recognised myself when I hear the term "LoHo" for the first time some years ago. "Lifestyle of health and sustainability" - Basically it says you should live your life healthy and sustainable. Again don't worry, you [...]
