The beauty of decay

“And everything is beautiful Because everything is dying” I recommend listening to New Model Army’s “Autumn” whilst reading this blog post. I know that the blog title and song title seem rather morbid, and they probably are… but I always had a thing for morbid, because of its beauty. Morbid is happy! But see for … Continue reading

I am finally in the position to add another travel post to this blog – about time, I missed it! As you know, I left my job and had some leftover vacation days to take, so Mr. Betterhalf and I decided to go on a city trip for my birthday. At first, we discussed Barcelona … Continue reading

This is weird on many levels: First of, I am German and I had never heard the term before. Secondly, Ana is not German and knows the term. Thirdly, the term seems to be internationally known. … Continue reading

In search of the winter
