Last Minute trip to Stockholm

Last July I visited Sthlm and wrote a little love blog post about a city totally positive and in good mood due to the summer weather. The warm season had returned after 3 cold summers. Swedes live for summer so to get a bad one is like not getting a dose of your life saving medicine. Things can easily feel pretty heavy in the … Read More

Martin Bundock and TT Testar

The other week I was traveling to Stockholm. It feels like new great spots are poping up with a high speed and I always need to make a new research before every trip (even though I tend to go every third month or so). The first person I ask is Martin Bundock. Martin always knows practically everything new in the … Read More

Here in Morocco, the local bakery is run by men and the families are bringing their dough to be baked. Every family has their personal cloth so they know which pile of bread they are to pick up … Read More

Wine harvest – Behind the Scenes

On instagram and blogs things tend to look perfect. The plates are  filled. Tables are  surrounded with friends. Strawberries are incredibly red. And kids smile or make funny faces.  And the sun is shining. When we did the Friends of Truth wine harvest in Baden the sun was shining about 1,2 hours. Not much. During this short time we faught … Read More

Of course I did. I called … Read More

Tel Aviv is in the house

I was not aware how poetic the Hebrew language is. Did you know that the words Sadness – עצב- and Create/design-לעצב- has the same word stem? I think that is a beautiful thought. And so true. There is a limitation to creativity if you are lacking the pain. ———————————- I have a friend from Israel visiting me here in Berlin. She brought … Read More
