Spring’s here + lux weekend in Berlin

Hey friends,

just to prevent you from another “oh still that old post, nothing new on here, yawn”-moment ; a little update.

I spent the weekend in Berlin together with my dad and a big part of my family! We came together to celebrate my lovely cousin Claras birthday! For me, who watches every coin right know to save up money for amazing future trips (woooo) [trips in terms of travelling 😉 ]  these three days were luuuux! Went to a vietnamese restaurant the first day, bought TONS of fresh local organic veggies from a little village shop to make a nice potato-swede-cauliflower-carrot casserolethe other day, vegan choc-mint icecream at night (don’t take me as an example kids) aaaand a raw vegan acai-bowl (best thing are the raspberries and raw cocoa nibs) + “Macao” cocoa with maca + glutenfree vegan cookie @ HOPE Superfood Deli. Deeelish guys!! So, as I said, luxury, and I am really grateful for the quality family time we had together 🙂

Right, now I really have to study efficiently for my upcoming exams and nutrition study! By the way: it is spring already (NUTS!) I love love love it! Favourite time 🙂 Alright, hugs to you, stay healthy, cheers Jula xxx

Christmas parties can be fun! (+Amsterdam III)

Soooo you guys, last part of my travel diary via pictures! Everytime I look at them I realize again how much I enjoyed it and how inspiring that city is 🙂 Meanwhile in reallife: tomorrow is the last day of uni before holidays and it’s gonna be a tough one (10 am – 8pm). Today though we had a christmas party for the whole uni and it was so cool 🙂 At the beginning it was quite lame and people left because it was mainly mulled wine drining and biscuit eating without interesting interactions. But I somehow knew that I’d just have to stay a little longer and voilà, it was worth it! Pauli (a classmate) and I got to know more students from other courses (game design) and had quite a lot of fun! I love being connected to other uni courses but it can be slightly difficult at the start. However, we grew together a bit more and had a good evening 🙂p1330298p1330372p1330412p1330416p1330405p1330402p1330400p1330280p1330396

Amsterdam Part2

Welcome back adventurer! Here we go, second part of my attempt to capture the blissful beauty of this special city! Also, happy weekend! I am glad that I’ve got 2 days off anything to concentrate on my uni homework and christmas presents 🙂 This year I somehow managed to NOT get into stress regarding presents and just having fun adding bits of this and that to fit every individual loved one 🙂

Here we were on the scout for a nice coffee shop that serves vegan lunch. This one had only one option BUT we stayed to take pics of their incredible decor! So lovely!

Ok, so we didn’t find a vegan snack but stumbled across this pretty restaurant that had some vegan and glutenfree options. Not very cheap but worth the price …

This tempeh and salad plate with patatas bravas was 11 € and included the MOST pleasent server that you can also have a nice chat with!

Tempeh is fermented soy beans and super healthy, it is rich in protein and dietary fibre and leads to way less bloating than normal tofu. Our body loooves fermented stuff (i.e. Sauerkraut/miso/soy sauce)

Next up, one of plenty of beau-ti-ful windows and show rooms, perfectly decorated in style and with abandon! Simply walking by these shops is fun, you don’t even ave to leave money there! But, on the other hand, it’s not even that expensive, you’ve got all kinds of price variations!

There will be a last part on monday, it would just be too much beauty for one post 😀 I wish you the happiest 4. advent and love and peace and balance,

yours truly, Jule xx

 

Amsterdam Part1

It’s been a while, but…

Here I am, back with the first batch of pictures from my trip to Amsterdam. As I said before, Anna and I decided spontaneously to visit our friend and former housemate Millie from Bristol, wo moved to Amsterdam for studying with Erasmus. It’s been a year that we haven’t seen us, from the point that Anna and I left England to swap it for Portugal. In addition, I’ve never been to Amsterdam before (at least I can’t remember) and was so curious ever since Anna started to enthuse about it about 2,5 years ago!

So here we were, in midst of that vibrant city, sourrounded by tons of lovely (coffee) shops, flowers, stunning interiors, open windows, vintage goodness etc etc! Every detail in the centre is just so heartwarming and very obviously made with love! So have a look at the pictures, more are yet to come 🙂

Those pretty streets and house fronts!

This city is like a perfect mix of England, Sweden and Germany – and so is the language.

The two beauties ❤ It’s important to have friends you can perfectly chill with!

Can somebody please open a vegan shop of this kind???

Trust issues

itrust

“iTrust”, Jule M, 2016

Trust, to me, is a key element for a balanced life. Trust is what slows down stressful moments. When I am worrying about an specific outcome, time, my ability, the future, health, relationships, STUFF – I remember to trust. Because if I know one thing, then it is that everything, in the end, fits together and makes perfect sense! There is a reason to all that is in life. Having trust doesn’t mean to stop caring about the events in your life, as in “it doesn’t matter what I do, life will happen as it will anyway”. No, take the strings and make it what you want it to be, but relax when you are in a situation where you can’t assume control anymore. Have faith, that you’re exactly  where you’re supposed to be. For instance, when I rush in the morning and have to wait for train, already anticipating that I’ll be late, I can either stress out internally or just “let it be”. Because there is no point in overcalculating here, I am where I am and if I trust, things will work out (and then, the  prof is late as well or no one noticed that I was late etc). Just as we have the possibility to create our own life we have the option to let life guide us now and then 🙂

I do trust that the universe has my back and that is has grand intentions for my existence here on earth, so why not just chill? xx Jule

Travel update

p1310825

Hey you guys!

Just a quick update: I spent a fuckin lovely weekend with Anna here in Leipzig and the Elbe Sandstone Mountains (for the Germans out there: yes, that is supposed to be the right translation 😛 ), it was a very very active one and we left our comfort zones multiple times! I’ll upload pictures and reports later, right now I am not feeling so well, catched a cold :/ Also I gotta go make rosemary potato wedges 😀

Speak to you later xxxx

About cruising on earth

I’m back from Danzig!

A group of my old friends from school and I went to Poland and the city of Danzig (Gdansk) to do what we did in Prague 2 years earlier: coming together to camp, have fun, drink, laugh, cook, chill etc. This time our campground was almost directly at the beach (5 mins walking) and we had a huge “base camp” framed by a DDR caravan , VW T5, TIPI tent, a hammock, ale-benches and a tripod holding a huge kettle/cauldron. I didn’t take a camera this year because it just nicer sometimes not to think of taking pictures all the time, but these two here, which I took in Prague, pretty much show the situation!

P1070262P1070270

Well, after 7 days of heavy rain to baking heat we made it back and I went straight to Anna’s. It took us less than an hour and we were diving deeper than my head could process that quickly! We talked about the anunaki “gods” and how there is no such thing like a setting sun, because it’s just us who “turn our backs to the sun”. The sun itself shines day and night so basically there’s absolutely no need for TIME as in DAYTIME and NIGHTTIME. The NOW finally made perfect sense because in the past I used to think:

“Ok if time does not exist and time counting is manmade, why do we have day and night?” But then it hit me and I actually felt dizzy, because the simple fact that the earth is circling doesn’t mean that we need the concept of time.

Howsoever, this is kinda hard to explain.  What we have is now and that is more than enough 🙂 Kiss!

My weekend

IMG_2161IMG_2156

My weekend  was so different somehow haha! Like normally when I am alone at home I’d spent lots of time inside doing nothing… especially when it’s 30 + °C outside – pretty reasonable, huh? But this time I did a lot of stuff..

On friday evening I went to Lottes (ex-) place to help her renovate a bit. This is where I spotted the beautiful flowers btw *_* Also, isn’t the quality astonishing for an iPhone 4?

When we finally finished we went back to mine, we had the place to ourselves, made a delicious veggie lasagne with cheeeeese (vegan ofc) and then watched “How to be single”. I watched it with Anna before and it was so hilariously funny I watched it again with Lotte.

On saturday I thought I could finally take a look at a climbing centre in Leipzig… I went climbing every other day in Bristol and haven’t used my gear ever since. Anyway, every circumstance spoke against going on that day, it was frickin hot outside, it was getting late, I could have gone the next day, I had no-one to go with, I would have had to cycle for 30 min. BUT I just couldn’t stand that feeling of “doing nothing and feeling bad about it” anymore, so I JUST WENT. On my own, and yeah, it was fun! I bouldered a bit, inspected the centre (which is amazing) got 3 decent blisters and went back after like 40 minutes 😀

Later Lotti and I wanted to meet up for a picnic in the park where a free open air classical music festival took place, but when I arrived it started to POUR, I was completely soaked after 3 seconds, no kidding!!! But it was warm and utterly energizing, such a good feeling!! Drenched like after a good shower I cycled back home and had my sushi without company haha, but the little trip was worth it anyway!

My hands, or rather the open blisters, hurt so much but thats part of the deal. They’ll heal quickly. Today I cleaned my room, got rid of unused stuff, sorted my wardrobe and then cooked dinner for my family – wedges with a stir fry (pak choi, broccoli, mushrooms, onion, soy sauce)  and guacamole *_* They loved it and so did I, now we are gonna enjoy a quite and cozy evening with reading and cuddling.

 

 

Throwback Portugal

 

 

1aaaaa

1aaaa

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 ❤

 

Can you believe this??


Hey beautiful souls,

today at 7:23 am I woke up naturally. This blew my mind, because I intended to do so – because I knew the full moon today reaches it’s peak at 7:23!! And I just woke up, looked at my phone and saw these numbers… Crazy innit?!?! Additionally I did a quick grounding meditation , where I just lead energy from my root chakra up to my crown chakra, and it was so intense!! The further I went up towards the head the more I felt the energy filling parts of my body! At some point it was so strong that I thought I’d breathe through some other organs but not my mouth/nose/lungs! It felt very heavy and I would have freaked out in the past, however, nowadays I can kinda enjoy it 🙂

So you guys, the next few days could be very energetic, negative emotions such as fear or grief may come up – attention, this happens FOR YOU, not against you! They want to be released and acknowledged- just accept everything and let it go, emotions come and go as weather does 🙂 it’s time to let go and move on without the baggage! Have a beautiful day, love and light to all of us 🙂 xx
