Hey there guys. So last week was full of ups and downs. You know those weeks, right? I was hit with a virus last Wednesday that’s left me pyjama-clad and house-bound for the past five days. There’s been lots of sleeping, wooly socks, ginger tea and streaming of Australian TV. Comforting things. This bug has been very inconsiderate too, because it decided it wanted to stick around for a while and share my birthday with me too. Oh well, what can you do? On the plus side, I was absolutely overwhelmed by the lovely birthday messages, cards and gifts both from my dear loved ones back home and my new loved ones over here in Berlin. Even though I was feeling pretty ill, I also felt pretty special too.
Here are this week’s favourite links:
READ: I’ve had a few conversations lately with a few women I know about the high expectations we place upon ourselves to be an absolute winner in all facets of our life at the one time. Realistic? No, of course not. This article by Elizabeth Gilbert is a wonderful read on this very topic.
EAT: This butternut squash, kale and quinoa stew is packed full of nutrients and is exactly the medicine I need.
BUY: Do you travel the world by your stomach? I do. How cool is gourmet scratch map that encourages you to eat your way around Europe’s gastronomical specialties? I want to be able to scratch off everything!
GO: Ever wondered about what it would be like to travel to Yemen? I have. Jonathan Collins has compiled a beautiful photo essay in his travels in Yemen published on Passion Passport. His photos transport me away.
Wishing you a healthy week my friends! x
