Are you tired of my London overload yet?
Sorry Not sorry. If you’ve been following along on Instagram, I’ve been bombarding you with snaps of my five days in London recently. I’ve only just started writing up some blog posts about my time there, so be prepared for the London takeover to continue! It just felt so damn good to be back in an English speaking country for a little while, where the food was bloody amazing and everyone was just so… nice. I got my fix of everything I was missing living in Germany and relished being back where things just felt familiar and, well, easy.
To be honest though, I was utterly exhausted when I returned to Berlin and I couldn’t convince myself to do much at all except lounge around in loose clothes and read We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves, which I’m adoring. My time in London was full-on, jam-packed with 12 hour days spent eating my way around the city. Exhausting stuff, let me tell you. But with new adventures creeping up in less than a week, it’s time to get organised and focused. I spent yesterday working in one of my favourite Berlin cafés, Kaschk, and plan to hit the books (or Macbook more accurately) again after a morning workout today. My to-do list is about a mile long, although I can’t really remember a time when it wasn’t. What are your goals for this week?
Here are this week’s favourite links:
WATCH: When he realised that his life had lost meaning and passion after being trapped in the rat race for too long, Eric Giuliani quit his job and gave himself a year to learn everything he could about writing, photography and filmmaking. He’s now travelling the world full-time and is living proof that if you want something bad enough, you have the power to make it happen. Watch the first episode of his story here.
READ: Here are six travellers who are changing the world and their stories are worth noticing.
EAT: I love tacos of any kind and these breakfast tacos look especially delicious.
MAKE: Aren’t these DIY masking tape birthday cards lovely?
BUY: Coming into the cooler weather, I’m loving oversized scarves like this. I might have to order some online soon.
GO: I’m jetting away again later this week back to Italy: first to Bologna and then on to Florence. I’ve never been to either cities before, so if you have any tips (especially food related), please send them my way!
Hoping that you have a productive and energetic week ahead, friends!
