And this brings us to the non-fiction category! I categorised this further into the subsections Self Development, Educational Reads, Life Stories, Adventure Stories and Survival Stories so that you can browse them more easily. Let’s have a look! Continue reading “Books I read in 2020 – Non-Fiction”
Before we now move on to the non-fiction category let me introduce you to the honourable mentions: Books I have stopped reading some ways into the story and will most likely not finish. Even though those reads were not for me at this point in time, they might very well make a fantastic next read for someone else. Continue reading “Books I read in 2020 – Shelved”
If one of those things is picking up new books then allow me to look back on my reads of 2020 – so that you can check out what I’ve been reading. And who knows, maybe even find your next read somewhere in the list as well! Continue reading “Books I read in 2020 – Fiction”
It is late in the year, very late. We have all had an intense 2019, days are short and Christmas sweets are plentiful. How on earth are we supposed to stay motivated when it is cold and dark and we are tired. Especially for things that aren’t always easy – inspiration, productivity or exercise.
Well, maybe we don’t need to. Continue reading “How to stay motivated to exercise”
I, as an adult, am now very much aware that Disney movies are by no means unproblematic afternoon entertainment for the kiddos (or the grownups) that you can just turn on for them and that’s that.

On the last weekend of February, we ventured out to Birmingham to visit the Caravan, Camping and Motorhome Show in the NEC. Having great fun with backpacking, camping and glamping already, we have been toying with the idea of a home on wheels for quite a while now. So we booked ourselves tickets to the Caravan, Camping and Motorhome Show. It was the first time for us to go to a motorhome expo and so we got quite excited to see some of the vehicles up close to get a feel for layouts and sizes.

Disneybounding in World Disney World Florida.
After about 8 months of build-up and preparations (see here), it was finally here – the time to go to Disney and with it the time to experience what it is like to participate in Disneybounding in an actual Disney Park.
In this article, I describe what Disneybounding was like, not what Disney was like in general – if you are interested in that, have a look at the respective post that is coming soon. Continue reading “Disneybounding Part III”
