“It’s easy to give up, to stop doing your best. It’s easy to let go of a commitment and just not be attached to anything or anyone. It’s easy to decide to become numb to pain and happiness. It’s easy to do only what needs to be done and not take the extra step to make it the best that it can be. It’s easy to have no passion. You know what’s hard? Holding on. Putting your heart into everything that you do. Allowing yourself to feel the pain of disappointment, instead of being numb to it. Deciding to do whatever it takes to make a commitment work. So if you’re one of those people who “tries too hard” or “holds on too much”, be proud of your passion for life. Be proud of the fact that you haven’t allowed life to turn your heart into a cold rock that beats without living.”
It was very quiet on the blog in the last few months. I was busy living. As some of you may have heard on Facebook, Instagram or Snapchat, I moved to Copenhagen in the end of January to do an exchange semester. My time here in the beautiful north is almost over and I’m moving back to Switzerland on the first of July. I am looking forward to have all my friends and family around again but I could easily stay here a bit longer. I wouldn’t mind living in Denmark for the next few years. Copenhagen is a wonderful city ( you can read more about it in a detailed City Guide soon) and the people are friendly and incredibly stylish.
During my stay here I had the opportunity to meet many new people and cities. I made new friends from all over the world that I hope to see soon again and stay in contact with. I am planning on going to visit them all, that’s for sure! I have travelled around within Denmark and seen it’s beauty, I was in Sweden and Finland and had an amazing time in Russia. These are experienced I would have never had without going to Denmark.
Life got in the way.
I changed a lot over the past few months. It feels like I am a different human being now. Life has new priorities and despite some “tragedies” before I left and during my stay I am just happy now. Unconditionally happy. The Danish way of living life is certainly one reason as well.
I learned how important living life actually is. Time flies pas us and we have only one chance to create a life we want to live. One chance to gain experiences and to be happy. Everyone is responsible for his own happiness.
In the future I will be travelling much more and get to know and appreciate the world and its beauty. Soon you’ll find a new category about travelling on the blog and of course my personal travel bucket list.
Go out. Live your live. And above all, be happy!

The second candle on the Advent wreath is already burning and Christmas is moving closer in big steps. I don’t know, how about you, but I don’t really come along with organizing all the presents.

Hi everyone. This is my first post in my newly established category on my Girlfriend’s blog. I don’t know what I will be posting about. I guess mostly gaming or other tech stuff. Maybe I will present some new gear I’ve newly acquired or some stuff I’ve just learnt in my studies. I guess we’ll see.
Today I’d like to talk about a game that the whole world, it seems, has been waiting for. I personally have been longing for it since the moment I finished its predecessor. I think I need not say more for you to know what I am talking about. And you are right. It’s FALLOUT 4. I don’t want to talk story or rate the game. I just want to talk about how I feel after playing it and give you my opinion on the game. So if you plan on playing it, don’t worry about Spoilers – there are none here. Continue Reading

Yesterday was almost 30 degrees hot and today have I asked myself the same question again, that I’m asking every year… How the hell did I survive last winter? What do you have to be wearing at 6 degrees in the morning, to leave the house without freezing while waiting for the bus?
I do not dare to already take out my winter coats, I don’t want summer to be over yet.
But winter will be coming anyway, whether I want it to or not, therefore I commenced on preparing myself for the coldest time of the year. I wrote a personal winter must-haves list to share with you to be perfectly prepared. Better early than late, right?
