Hello there my friends! Long time no see. You may have noticed the little absence of last week’s Sunday Selections. Things are definitely getting busier over here, but definitely in a good way! I’ve had a number of exciting opportunities come my way in the last few weeks which has me bunkered down working on these new projects in most of my spare minutes. I’ll be posting all the juicy details here on The Department of Wandering soon so stay tuned!
This weekend we were blessed with a long weekend which has made it extra nice. On Friday Berliners celebrated ‘Mai Tag’ (May Day) which is traditionally a day dedicated for campaigning for workers’ rights. Many political activists participate in street demonstrations on this day and everyone else uses Mai Tag as an excuse to attend the city’s largest street party. We headed into Kreuzberg, the centre of the action, and enjoyed the festivities over a picnic in Görlitzer Park with some friends.
Here are this week’s favourite links:
WATCH: While on assignment for National Geographic Magazine reporting on life on the Mekong River in Southeast Asia, photographer David Guttenfelder captured one second of video footage each day for the 90 days he was there. He combined the footage to create a raw look at life in a 90 second video here.
READ: There’s a lot of truth in this article on ‘Why You Need to Move at Least 5 Times in Your Life’. What do you think?
