This blogpost is a bunch of thoughts I had on a boatride from Koh Phangan to Koh Tao. In fact it was quite a challenging boatride during monsoon season. It revealed something inside of me though which I wanted to capture and write down. There’s no better place to do that than on placesoflinda.
It’s 7am in the morning and the sun starts to rise slowly over the mountains. It seems like whole La Orotava is still sleeping – all I can hear are the birds. With a cup of tea I’m going straight from my bed to the rooftop to enjoy the quiet hours and embrace a new day. It is Monday and I have to work, however I’m looking forward to this day. Looking forward to getting in touch with my colleagues and working on my projects, to doing yoga class before my lunch break, to exchanging ideas with other Nine coliving people, to going to a local beach in the afternoon and to ending the day with a family dinner and guitar session.
My job is 100 % home office based, which makes it possible for me to move around and work from different places. This implies though, that I can’t set up a permanent work station.

End of January 2020 I spent three weeks travelling across Taiwan. I recently uploaded a new Youtube video which gives you an insight into this beautiful and diverse island.

In this blogpost I’m gonna write about how an idea transformed into a video, what kept me from editing straight away and what the whole video editing process looked like.
I don’t have a home. I mean I do have a home, but it’s not permanently located at one spot. I used to say, home is wherever my backpack is. But also it is everywhere I feel comfortable. Home is where family and friends are. But it can also be a familiar place I come back to. My home is always moving and to cut it short for you: This blogpost is about how my (moving) home came to life.
I had my first proper yoga lesson in Bali in 2016. Since then I’ve attended many different classes around the world and practiced yoga at home. During the past few years I’ve found a few poses that help me to center and connect with myself. To be present in the moment without any interruptions from everdays’ hectic life or a busy brain. Namaste.
After I came back from London I had to quarantine for ten days, as Germany declared the UK as risk country. So I came up with the idea of writing about things you should NOT do during quarantine. And if you read til the end, I’ll tell you how I spent my quarantine.

Have you ever travelled to (Southeast)-Asia? And have you ever experienced benefits of a so called “bum-gun”? If yes, this article is perfect for you. If no, this article might change your life. Unfortunately, in many Western countries we don’t even know about this wonderful thing called bum-gun. I discovered and tried a great alternative I want to tell you more about: HappyPo.
When it comes to birthday gifts I personally prefer giving and receiving something mostly non-material: having food, spending time together or… giving 30 paper cards. Each card comes with a challenge – 30 of them. The good thing is that you can include all of the things I just mentioned and also come up with your own ideas.
