    Nothing better than celebrating a birthday surrounded by people you love 💕 So, Natalie was very happy to visit her best study friends for her birthday.

    Visiting the Federal Environment Agency

    November 21, 2019 in Germany ⋅ 🌧 7 °C

    On our way back home, we visited the German Federal Environment Agency (Umweltbundesamt) in Dessau-Roßlau. We learned about the function of the agency, the eco-architecture and the renewable, self-generated energy of the building.

    We took many interesting booklets about recycling, waste-management, renewable resources and circular economy. Everything that passions us was there, written and stored at this huge environmental library. Beautiful! With so much knowledge available, a sustainable future must be possible!
    Did you know, that you can borough books from library to be sent to any place in Germany? Or that you can download all UBA publications online?

    We need more places like this in the world! And we need to bring the new generations here! Books at the library have no meaning, if nobody uses that knowledge!

    Creepy night

    November 19, 2019 in Poland ⋅ 🌙 4 °C

    A night not to remember, and definitely the worst experience we had so far: We found a nice and quiet sleeping spot next to a lake and a football court. To be honest, it seemed a bit creepy when we arrived, but it felt safe. We just felt asleep, when around 1 am there was a big bang / little explosion just next to our van (around 200 m away) ...then only dogs barking and silence, we didn't find out the origin of the sound....we took our stuff as fast as possible and drove through the night and darkness. Luckily nothing happened, except for a big shock and a sleepless night!Read more

    Warsaw, Poland

    November 18, 2019 in Poland ⋅ ☁️ 12 °C

    Warsaw in short: a beautiful historical city center (restored after WWII), a surprisingly modern new part of the city with skyscrapers and a big football stadium and a lot of memorials for famous citizens, like Kopernikus, Marie Curie and Chopin. And of course tasty traditional food like "Pierogi". For the first time on our trip we slept in a hotel :DRead more

    Kaunas, Holocaust Monument

    November 17, 2019 in Lithuania ⋅ ☁️ 9 °C

    Learning about the Soviet occupation of Lithuania, the fight for independence and the Holocaust in Kaunas. The exhibition in a former fort and later prison was very authentic and we could feel the horror of this place during our visit. At this place more than 50.000 people (regime opponents and Jews) were executed in different times of history.Read more

    Riga

    November 16, 2019 in Latvia ⋅ ☁️ 8 °C

    We were lucky to be in Riga just at the Indepence Day of Latvia. For this reason the city was full of people, families, celebration an interesting art work throughout the city. And what a nice city it is. Somewhat similar to Tallinn, but still very different. We found another Middle Ages bar, this time underground and with many arches, tunnels and live music, so full of atmosphere... We enjoyed our stop at Riga!Read more

    Tallinn

    November 14, 2019 in Estonia ⋅ ☁️ 10 °C

    Tallinn...! What a surprise! We planned only to stay 1 day but added an extra day because of the exciting and lovely city we could discover! Strolling through the medieval old town with an amazing middle ages restaurant, and visiting our first Christmas market for the year.
    We learned about the moved history of this small country having been in a ping pong between big nations for many centuries. So we can be excited what is there to come for Estonia as an independent country 🇪🇪! Innovative concepts like a free public transport in Tallinn, an online voting system make it seem promising. Did you know that the concept for World Cleanup Day was born in 2008 in Estonia, when 50,000 volunteers were collecting litter countrywide, creating the biggest "positive civic action" in the world? We are excited what is there to come!

    Tallinn - Vegan Restaurant

    November 14, 2019 in Estonia ⋅ ⛅ 7 °C

    We found a very nice Vegan Restaurant in the heart of Tallin, Estonia. There we enjoyed a very very tasty meal. We were impressed, that carrot taste exactly like smoked salmon (no joke) and Johann liked his burger better than many beef burgers he had eaten before.
    We are convinced, if vegan food was always like this, more people would eat it regularly and reduce consumption of animal products: delicious, creative, well presented and most decisively cheaper than meat options.
