After my little world changed unexpectedly in August 2013, I found myself in an incredibly challenging and painful situation. Life forced me to change gear. It encouraged me to start thinking about the meaning of existence again. Even though I have always been chasing my dreams I’ve maintained my childlike sense of wonder and curiosity. I kept myself so busy in an everyday routine that I didn’t take time for pit stops; to look at the map and the road I was on…
Life kicked me out of the saddle and after a time of grieving and alteration of myself, I am getting myself back on it – well, I should say “back on the road”.
I invite you to follow me…
Why would you? Here are a few things about me:
I believe in magic, silliness and the anticipation of a new day. My heart beats for motorbikes & Hot Rods. I love capturing the simplicity of every day life in photos. I am a spirited warrior that gratefully faces every moment and challenge of life with excitement and a positive attitude.
I am a German gal, who spent the last years living, working and riding in Melbourne and is now in exile in Bali. Home? Well, I suppose this website is going to be my home for a while… I’m 29 years of age. (There were days when doctors questioned whether or not I would get to see the age of 30 – but that’s something you can read about in my ‘backstory’ soon) What else? I like the atmosphere of train stations and find happiness in the smell of rain. The cuteness of bumble bees makes me laugh, I can’t dance, I sleep talk and every now and then I nurture myself with a glass of sweet white wine. I am always hungry and get a crinkly nose when I laugh.
So what is this whole thing about?
It’s about a woman (me). Two wheels. Four corners.
About backpack full of dreams and a road into the unknown…
It’s about a quest for truth, growth, transformation and healing guided by my spirit, heart and intuition.
