My comfort zone

_1250066Let me introduce you to my current comfort zone : my life. And you know what’s about to happen? Growth. Because whats happening right know is getting me nowhere and this has to and will be changed (now).

More focus. On my “worldly” goals and, above all, my spiritual ones. I know I could get everything I want (doesn’t have to be materialistic but involves life qualities such as the feeling of freedom and abundance and unconditional love) within like 10 days IF I ONLY STARTED! Ok, end of speech.

Friday, with a touch of spontaneity, I took the coach and train to my old hometown and visited Anna. She thought a lot of things changed and the distance may be a barrier for us BUT OF COURSE (and luckily) we just vibed so strong together again, felt the love and talked about feelings, goals, thoughts etc. I am so grateful for our connection. Just to be understood. And to have the same idea of what life really means. We went to Bora Bora a.k.a the lake Müritz and went swimming just about the same time that the sun set. “Looks good!” she joked as I tried to heave myself unto the  bathing jetty, which was quite high. “SO take a picture!!” I screamed back before we were bursting with laughter, me still pressing my body on that landing, not able to push it up fully 😀

An honest, authentic, funny, relaxing, spontaneous, yummy, super warm, summery weekend filled with love. So grateful 🙂

Bae, our car and I after one of our most adventurous days so far. Eating unbelievably tasty vegan selfmade pizza and fruits, pancakes and what else – watching the atlantic ocean by night.

 

Throwback Portugal

Just a little throwback to our b-e-a-utiful time (comment if you get it 😉 ) in Porto.. gosh, I remember how I couldn’t realize being actually there, on the road, in a car, at the beach, in our own house, all along. And I knew it would seem like a fairytale when I’d return some day. We didn’t stay as long as we’d thought, but this -to me- only means that we’ll be back soon. Looking forward to actually start surfing and feel the truly energetic strength of the waves… it’s not explainable but I felt something I haven’t felt before when jumping into the waves in February. However, I am grateful for the very moment, really am. Got football shoes today for frisbee… excited to try them out. My mum said I look like a little football fanatic boy when walking in them in our flat 😀

Much love and light to every single one of you, we are one ❤

Résumé: that night was kinda hard. Meditating was good and enjoyable but fasting and staying awake all night at the same time can be sligthly frustrating! I guess this is why I had some fruits at 4 am, it’s been 28 hours without food and I read that one meal is permitted during Shivaratri 😀 But anyway, I made it and so did Anna! As soon as the sun rose I made myself breakfast and we watched Game of Thrones and later on Totoru, but I fell asleep after like 30 mins and woke up 2 hours later? Both of us actually haha 😀

The pictures above are in front of the zoo we have in our town. It was too late and too expensive for us (13 € :O ) to get in, but the scenery was still so nice and spring-like 🙂

Now after dinner (I had lentil&spinach dahl with roasted potatoes, broccoli and tomatoes – so delicious!) and our video-watching ritual I could really see some more episodes of GoT 😀 So we will! Have a cozy night <3

Best night in Porto!

party

Yesterday night was a BLAST! We don’t always go out lately, in fact we haven’t been out once during our stay in Portugal. Until yesterday! Quite spontaneously (as always), I finally agreed to Annas idea of exploring Porto’s nightscene! It’s different having a car, so much more comfortable and easy! So we drove into the city, walked through the centre and found a super cute, cozy bar with a very quaint athmospere! After an non-alcoholic mojito for me and an ubersweet sangria for Anna we moved on. We got quite good along with the son of the pub owner and got recommendations for were we should go next!

As we already have april-like weather conditions over here, it started to rain heavily. Quick quick! The hotspot is not far from the centre, 3 minutes walk and you’ll find yourself in one of 3 streets full of bars, clubs and tons of people! Another drink in a dance-bar, which was more visited by older people though. The next bar we stayed in (almost all of them got free entry!!!) was so crowded, you could barely move. Anna spotted a guy next to us, blond hair, pale skin. “Sprichst du deutsch?”, meaning “Do you speak german?” she asked. “How do you know?” he replied astounded. Well, it was too obvious! As far as possible we got into talking (or rather screaming into one’s ear) and eventually joined the group of maybe 6/7 spanish and german guys and girls, who actually paid for a pub crawl from the hostel and so were on a tour trough the best bars and clubs! Since I was still talking to that german guy we decided to just join them on their crawl and went into a dancebar, which had a second floor downstairs. Quicker as I could even realize we stood in the midst of that international group of super funny people bursting with energy, started to dance and didn’t stop till 4 in the morning! As the night went along everyone got to know everyone, but honestly more the boys than the girls, and I had so so sooooo much fun! It’s crazy how one little act can change a whole period of time and open so many opportunities!

As it was a pub-crawl they moved on to the next club – but what is that? A doorkeeper means paying means we are out. We already wanted to say goodbye to the boys, but – they weren’t just superficially nice, no, they really cared. In the end they convinced the crawl-guide-girl to help us! So she told the bouncer that we lost our entry wristbands and eventually – believe it or not – we scurried past him and got into the club for FREE! Now this is what I call a miracle!

I don’t know, it may sound like a normal night out, but firstly, this is rather an exception for me and secondly, the circumstances were so crazy tight! We spend some more hours shaking buts to Rihanna, Drake, charts and badass remixes of tunes both old and new, squatting and twisting, laughing, singing and flirting. But we were still like a big group of old friends, so casual, and we’ve only met them like 4 hours ago!

Anyway, it was such great fun, I can’t get over it haha! These guys were exceptionally cool in terms of ease, dancing (like I’ve never seen guys dancing like that – that hip swinging had Dirty Dancing qualities!!) and realness! No fake trying to be cool or inapproachable, just having fun with new friends that all didn’t know each other for longer than 5 hours!

However, at 4 am we left, due to the growing mass of off – turning, groping men and Annas feet – her shoes already hurt at the beginning of the night, so she was super brave and persevered the whole night – which weren’t willing to stay in those strappy heels anymore!

Oh, did I mention that I didn’t have one drink and still had the best night ever? It really makes no difference as long as you feel comfortable with the people around you! By the way, the second I got on the road to drive home rain started to buck down like – you can’t even imagine! Fate! What an awesome night and – PORTOS NIGHTLIFE IS DEFINETELY WORTH A TRY!

Sun on my face

_1250404I love it! I love the warmth and the sun on my back, legs, feet, face, sculp, arms etc! I love being able to lay outside carelessly because it’s just so warm that you could spend hours in the park or on the beach in your fluttery dress. The warmness of the blanket from beneath, the tingling sunrays from above. I love it and I will come back to it ☼

We are gonna leave Portugal for a bit. Maybe it’s just a short visit home or even a longer period in Germany. Either way, we are gonna hit the road again soon. Til then, Porto pleases us with summer-like weather, begging us to stay, and I’d definitely come back. But home’s nice as well and there are some projects in the planning, which are easier to do/start from home (some parts at least). So stay tuned and look forward to some Berlin-Inspiration ❤

Welcome!

Hey you guys!

Here where I live, which is in Portugal, it’s 1o past midnight. I spend the whole day on creating this blog, testing every option thinkable and finally am somewhat happy with the outcome. A blog, at least from the outside, always seems to run so effortlessly. However, it takes a whole lot of time  to create it (even those small bits), wich are not even necessarily visible for the readers. Don’t get me wrong; it’s super fun! I definitely woulnd’t do it if it wasn’t for me and the fun in the first place 🙂

Anyway, this is by far not my first blog but I really feel like starting something fresh and new, going more into the “lifestyle and daily blogger” direction. Well, I can’t wait to fill this baby with lots and lots of posts full of realness, personal talk and hopefully inspiring pictures of my everyday life. Stay tuned and tank you so much for reading xxx Jule
