Sunday Selections

December 7, 2014

Happy Sunday, friends! You know the old proverb, ‘a Sunday well-spent brings a week of content’? Well, I’m expecting this week to be pretty darned great.

We woke late, reluctant to emerge from the warm covers, but ducked downstairs for fresh croissants as a reward. After chatting to family back home, we headed to my new favourite cafe, Kaschk for coffee and to catch up on some work. In the evening we met some friends at Neue Heimat, which I’ve been meaning to check out for a while now, for street food and Glühwein. Yep. This Sunday was relaxing, productive and social. So I have this feeling that the rest of the week will be happy.

Neue Heimat, Berlin

Here are this week’s favourite links:

WATCH: ‘For all its material advantages, the sedentary life has left us edgy, unfulfilled. Even after four hundred generations in villages and cities, we haven’t forgotten. The open road still softly calls like a nearly forgotten song of childhood.’ It is this restlessness of spirit that drives us on a quest to discover the unknown and it is this, indeed, that motivates the travelers among us to explore beyond what we know. But is our world enough? Is humanity’s expansion into the solar system inevitable? Erik Wernquist’s impressive new short film, Wanderers, explores this question with the aid of stunning visualisation.

READ: I firmly believe that the most valuable education that anyone is ever going to get is through travel and that traveling teaches students in a way schools can’t.

EAT: I’ve been feeling a little under the weather the past few days and am thinking that all of the goodness inside this garden keeper’s pie is the vitamin boost that my body needs.

MAKE: How much fun would it be to firstly make and then eat this gingerbread man garland? Brilliant.

BUY: Stuck for for gift ideas for the traveler in your family this Christmas? How about this cork globe where they can plot their past adventures across the world? I’ll take one!

GO: I’m yet to experience the romance of hiking into the forest, hand-picking and chopping down my very own Christmas tree. Jessica from Team Wiking and her little family recently did. So special.

Hoping that your week is full of content!
