20 Facts About Me

Sometimes it takes me a while to open up to strangers, but that’s why I’m writing this post. I want you to get to know me, so here’s 20 facts about me, in random order:

  1. I am an adrenaline addict and would love to bungee jump from a bridge.
  2. Ever since I learned how to write I have kept diaries – and have completed at least 8.
  3. When it comes to traveling, I am up for anything. I love spontaneous decisions, because traveling without plans makes for the best stories.
  4. I am a twin.
  5. I love the Latino culture – the music, the dances, and the food: especially plantains and pinto beans. Apart from being delicious, they are a great vegan source of complex carbs and protein.
  6. My favorite season is summer. There is no other season for me. I’ve always felt like I was born on the wrong side of the world.
  7. I am fluent in Spanish and it’s one of my favorite languages.
  8. I used to be obsessed with Grey’s Anatomy – this show has taught me a lot and I have made wonderful friends thanks to Grey’s.
  9. I stretch and/or do yoga almost every night before going to sleep. It makes me feel connected to Earth and reminds me to be grateful.
  10. As a kid, I always wanted to be a performer in a circus. Now that I think about it, it correlates to my need to constantly experience new cultures and countries.
  11. I am a tea connoisseur. I know my tea and I have about fifteen different kinds of teas at home (I’m talking loose leaves, not tea bags).
  12. I have an urge to jump from high heights (into water, not the ground. Oh my god).
  13. At the age of 15, I decided to move to Costa Rica, so I did for precisely one year. After finishing high school in Germany I went back to C.R. to work there.
  14. Thai is my favorite cuisine. I love the spices and different flavors, and everything coconut-based. Thais really know how to cook.
  15. As a lover of all things secondhand, I love visiting flea markets to discover hidden gems and to then combine them with store-bought pieces.
  16. I am a kid at heart. I think it is important to keep your inner child alive.
  17. I am deeply moved by the beauties of life, especially nature. Nature is cheaper than therapy (and this is a future psychologist speaking).
  18. Whenever I stay in a place for a long time, especially Germany, my heart begins to ache, and I long to go on another adventure. I urge to get to know all the cultures, landscapes, people, food, traditions our world has to offer.
  19. I grew up playing soccer and dancing classic ballet. I remember being made fun of because I would change into my soccer jersey and shin pads at the ballet studio.
  20. It is easier for me to express my deeper thoughts and feelings through writing than verbally. I love keeping a journal and I will turn to it when I experience inner turmoil, but also when I feel inspired. I have a natural tendency to write my experiences down, and this is why I started this blog. I love sharing not only my crazy stories, but also what I learn along the way – only if you want to hear it – for example the story of my escape from a couch surfer’s home after missing my flight, or the time an employee broke into my room (twice) in Sri Lanka. (Yep, that happened.)
