(Deutsch) Zero Waste in Bonn

(Deutsch) Zero Waste in Bonn

(Deutsch) Vor kurzem habe ich eines meiner 100 Projekte realisiert und eine Bonner Zero Waste Gruppe ins Leben gerufen. Wie ihr vielleicht wisst, habe ich bereits zuvor versucht mit Stadt, Schulen, Festivals, Yoga + Müllsammelaktionen etc. Zero Waste Ziele in der Stadt zu erreichen. Aber je mehr Hände und Herzen helfen, desto schneller geht das natürlich voran, daher die Gründung der Gruppe Zero Waste Bonn.

Wir haben uns nun bereits schon 3 mal in der sogenannten “Hauptversammlung” getroffen um Ziele und Aktionen zu besprechen, die wir dann in Kleingruppen, je nach Interessen der Individuen umsetzen. Der General Anzeiger hat darüber sogar einen Artikel veröffentlicht….

7 bad habits to change today

7 bad habits to change today

In days like these, where global warming, climate change and CO2 footprint are words we can constantly hear on the news, it is easy to sit back and leave it to politics and climate change conferences to figure out the future of our earth. Or maybe you feel paralyzed, scared and think you can’t make a change? Well the good news is, you can! And you should! That doesn’t mean you have to join Greenpeace and run in the streets…

Reasons that fat is not the enemy…

Reasons that fat is not the enemy…

Many magazines and internet pages write time and time again that fat makes you fat, even though that idea has long been outdated. Let me explain why… Do we need fat? Without fat, the human body could not survive, because fat is responsible for several vital body functions like Absorption of fat soluable vitams (A, E, D, K) Fat is a part of many metabolic reactions Fat tissue produces hormones Fat is part of cell structures (all cell structures, not only…

What’s poverty?

What’s poverty?

Many people have asked us back at home how we cope with the extreme poverty in this part of the world. When we actually started to think about it, we realized that we didn’t notice poverty as much. And by that I don’t mean that we run around ignorant, living a bliss life without paying attentions to our surroundings. In fact we’ve seen a lot of poor people, a lot of slums and extremely poor areas, we’ve seen people living…

How to have a bad time in Cambodia – and sometimes it’s better to move on

How to have a bad time in Cambodia – and sometimes it’s better to move on

Pictures as always at the end of the post After a short pit stop in Bangkok (cheaper flights from Myanmar!) we took a bus to the border of Cambodia, Poipet. The bus ride was fine, we walked through the Thailand part of the border without any problems (we were pretty happy we didn’t run into any of the 5 million mentioned scams), walked through the no-men-territory (question: if you book a hotel there, which country are you technically looking for!?),…

Valentine’s day at a monastery

Valentine’s day at a monastery

Pictures as always on the bottom of the post! After India, we took a pitstop in Malaysia and then headed to Myanmar. We spent some time in Yangon and Bagan, but that’s a different story I might tell later. I feel we’re so busy I rarely have time to update. So here’s the story of Valentine’s Day at a monastery or more so of our trek from Kalaw to Inle Lake! Early in the morning we got ready to meet…

10 things about India!

10 things about India!

Pictures as always on the bottom of the post! We have made it! Survived a month in India and didn’t even get sick once! I believe we are the first people to ever claim this, even though an Indian dude we talked to on the train said we tried some dangerous street foods (water based ones, whoopsie) Here are some of the things we remember! 1) Food is not actually as spicy as assumed. In fact it’s not spicy, except…

A (not so) typical day at the Ashram, Amritapuri, Kerala, India

A (not so) typical day at the Ashram, Amritapuri, Kerala, India

Pictures at always at the end of the post 3am – wake up from a bunch of bells going off. 4am – wake up by a bunch more bells going off. Try to go back to sleep in your prison like room (at least it’s a private and it has a view of the ocean), but the crow screeches through the open window and the waves crashing on the beach let you assume there’s a big storm (nope just crazy…

Overcoming Stereotypes

Overcoming Stereotypes

Pictures as always at the bottom of the post I tricked you guys in my last blog post, because getting my hands on the original Chai Tea Recipe, wasn’t all that hard. In fact I just asked the owner of our family guesthouse in Jaipur what is in Chai Tea (actually just to know if it’s milk or waterbased) and he immediately yelled at his son to write down the recipe for us, people are just the friendliest here! However…
