CoVoiturage – the art of car sharing

Now I wouldn't usually use this page for any kind of promotion, but I have to talk about the many wonders that I discovered in BlaBlaCar. Basically it's a car sharing website, that turned out to be the only feasible way for me to get from Hossegor to Barcelona, but I'm so glad that's how I got... Continue Reading →

My Endless Summer

At the beginning of October 2013, my endless summer was finally drawing to an end. After nearly a year of sunshine, surf and a very pleasant lack of responsibilities, I decided that I was ready to go back to a city, and get a "real" job (it was only a coincidence that my money was running...

Don’t ask me for a flat white

I remember after getting my first "proper" job as an After Effects artist, feeling like Rachel in Friends when she quit Central Perk saying, "you have no idea how good it feels to say that as of this moment...

And then I'm more like "What? I was never worried!" The harsh reality of job searching,... Continue Reading →

Machu Picchu

After leaving our home of Huanchaco in northern Peru, Cornelia, Foreste, Anna and I felt pretty low on our way south to Cusco. But instead of wallowing in self pity we decided to book our trip to Machu Picchu, and that definitely lifted our spirits. Cusco is the town closest to the site and that's... Continue Reading →
