The perfect city

We’ve been in Munich for almost two years, and during that entire time I have heard myself enumerate the number of things I don’t like about the city time after time. “It’s too rich, too small, too clean, too traditional, too…” However, when contemplating living somewhere else I find that I can come up with…

On how to survive a long distance relationship

I feel like I should start addressing the lack of posts recently. Maybe it’s only me who has noticed, who knows… but the truth is that I have been busy adapting to my new job for the past couple of weeks, and uploading more than once a week has been a bit of a challenge.…

What I miss about my home country since moving away

Ever since I was a kid, I had this idea in my head of what I would be like when I grew up. I wanted to be this glamorous woman, with a very important career, very fancy clothes and a very handsome boyfriend. But most importantly: I wanted to live in several different cities. “One…
