ABOUT ALL THE THINGS I WANT TO DO IN MY LIFE



Last night I couldn´t stop thinking about the things I want to do this summer, this year and generally in my whole life


...so I ended up writing a list of all the big and small things I want to do in my life!!


 It was actually kinda scary because I realized that there is sooo little time left to do a major part of the things even though I´m only 17 years old...

I guess I lived at least 15 on autopilot and didn´t really think about why I do what I do and what I truly want to do with my life and sadly I have the feeling that a lot of people still live on autopilot...

I see quite a lot of people who tell me "If I only had more money..." "If it would be possible..." when we talk about what to do after school. I sometimes may think a bit too optimistic but I mean why should it be unpossible to realize our dreams. 

Dreams are not meant to stay dreams forever.

EXPLORING THE NETHERLANDS // LEIDEN& GOUDA

"I´m in love with cities I´ve never been to and people I´ve never met"






Heeey ho, long time no see!!
But I´m back haha and I had the most amazing time with my friend in the netherlands last weekend... be prepaired for a little spam on this blog, I just took waaaay too many pics which I want to share with you!!
How are you guys doing? I´m doing an internship at Tchibo in the grafic design section which is so so much fun... and now I´m only having 1.5 more weeks school/internship til the summer holidays start... yass yass yaaas!
But anyway, as I said I spend the last weekend in the Netherlands!! Me and my dutch friend went to quite a lot of cities and I still can´t believe how beautiful there are... especially Leiden and Gouda are definitely worthy a second visit! I just love the Grachtenhouses, the old little streets, the bicycles everywhere (well they were actually kinda dangerous for me because I´m a bit clumsy and not used to so may bicycles which is not really a good combination haha...) and the little markets.

I´m having the dream/plan to study in the Netherlands, so hopefully I´ll have the chance to visit these nice citys very often, very soon:)
Did you every go to the Netherlands?
Well if you ever go to Gouda, you have to go to Curcuma, their vegan icecream was just sooo delicious!

I hope you enjoyed the post! Have a nice monday!
