A Year Abroad – Go for it!

Spending a year in another country is great for several reasons. You get to meet new people, experience a different culture, create memories for a lifetime and have the pleasant side effect of constantly improving your language skills.

Attending high-school abroad automatically comes with running into loads of new people. However, how easy is it to make the right friends when not really knowing anyone? Continue reading A Year Abroad – Go for it!

Should I Consider Taking Part in an Exchange Program?

I personally adore travelling and I’m sure I’m not the only one out there in the world. You may ask yourself why you should take part in an exchange program if you already travel a lot. Well, there are many good reasons you should consider.

Everyone knows that through travelling you get to know different cultures, try new food and maybe you will interact with some local people. But Continue reading Should I Consider Taking Part in an Exchange Program?

My Life In Asia

“It would be nice to have the ability to speed up and slow down time. Somethings pass too quickly, while others drag and don’t seem to want to ever end.”

There was a time where I would have given a lot to press “the invisible pause button”, simply to stop the minutes from passing so quickly. One thing I can say for sure, is that boring is the wrong word to describe my life. It all began when we moved to Asia… Continue reading My Life In Asia

Street Food

Street food is one of the greatest food trends, ever developed. I love the fact that you don’t have to feel guilty about eating things like burgers or fries. In actual fact it is fast food containing healthy components. The concept provides for a wide diversity of quickly served meals which often contain vegetables and salads. The meat is of good quality. That’s why it’s a thousand times better than what you get at places like McDonalds.

In the past years I went to street food festivals all over Austria. It is really awesome, because you get to know totally knew things, not only concerning meals but also culture. You find yourself eating stuff you would have never tried before and actually loving it. Getting to know some probably unthinkable food creation is really nothing special there. It is crazy how many varieties of burgers you can get at these places, but that’s just the beginning of a long, delightful and exciting road of awesome food.

If all of this hasn’t convinced you to start look immediately for a place which offers this kind of “diet”, here is another incentive: Street Food isn’t only tasty it is also easy to cook at home. By getting away from unhealthy fast-food you don’t just help yourself, but you also contribute to making our world a better place, by eating things which you know where they come from.

(Street) Food has the power to unite various cultures, and I think you can’t say that about a lot of things. I’m convinced that good food makes you feel good, or have you ever seen someone look angry while they were eating something yummy?

My personal experiences in an Arabic country

As the war in Syria is a big issue, many people flee to Europe. Most of them or maybe all are Muslims; I can imagine that many of you are a bit suspicious about the women, veiled in dark cloth. Maybe you´ve also heard many rumours about men letting women do all the work. I can tell you some things about my life in Libya, although it was the time Gaddafi ruled, and I was very. But I can still remember some things. Continue reading My personal experiences in an Arabic country
