Farming in the North of India

Right now, I’m sitting in the plane back to Germany. Finally time has come to return home after 19 months of travelling. The last four weeks I spent in the Himalayan Mountains of North India. I visited two different farms and had a great time. Let me share with you a time full of learning…


Central Myanmar

Central Myanmar we’re coming! Our ten days meditation retreat is over and it’s been intense. Our last week before our visa expires is planned for travelling from Yangon to Mandalay and  with the train to Lashio, the end of the railway. It’s a bus and taxi ride after leaving the monastery to reach the main…


An untouched beach

Today we are leaving Myeik to enjoy some quite days on an untouched beach near Dawei. Instead taking a big night bus like down south we are picked up by a minivan at the hotel. It’s a much nicer ride than the one down here. In the evening we arrive in Dawei. Because we cannot…


Rak Tamachat

Instead of going to the Mindfulness Project (link), the main reason why we’ve been coming back to Thailand, we’re on our way to Rak Tamachat (link) a permaculture farm near Sikhio. Because of a misunderstanding with the Mindfulness Project we had to search for an alternative and came up with Rak Tamachat. On the map…


Back in Thailand – Off the beaten tracks

Sometimes things don’t work out like expected. The two days stopover in Kuala Lumpur after coming from Australia was planned to be for organizing our Indian Visa, but unfortunately there was no way of getting more than just a 30 days stay permission, which we can also apply using e-visa. Quite disappointing. After some more…


Trips through New South Wales

After Helen wrote this wonderful post about our time at the Hazelcombe Farm. It is now my turn to take you with us on our trips through New Souths Wales. In the seven weeks we stayed at Dan’s and Niki’s farm we made several trips with their truck. We’re so thankful that they trusted us…


Hazelcombe Farm

After three days staying with the Peppercorns we move to the Hazelcombe Farm near Mudgee, central NSW Australia. Nikki and Dan are living on a 100 acre property together with their animals (three cattle, one horse, twenty three goats, several sheep, lots of chicken, pigeons and five dogs). Dan is taking us on a tour…


Kawai Purapura – a volunteering Yoga experience

Today I want to take you to Kawai Purapura (KPP), a Yoga Retreat and Community in Auckland. We spent two times one week there. First before Manu arrived and then directly afterwards. Therefore I’ve split the post in two parts. Before Manu came Our trip through the northern island of New Zealand is over and…


Deep down South

There is a special time ahead. We’re waiting for Manu, a friend coming from Germany. We’ll travel together the next 5 weeks. New Zealand’s south island is going to be our main destination, so snowy mountains, glaziers, stunning beaches and impressive wildlife ahead. After picking up Manu at the Auckland airport we don’t want to…


North Island – New Zealand

After leaving Santipada Buddhist Monastery we’re heading south visiting NZ’s biggest Kauri tree and passing the small town of Helensville. We’ve been attracted by the name and need to have a look. It’s maybe not that kind of a charming place but also part of the countries character. Our next destination is Coromandel Peninsula around…
