One Day on Rottnest Island | +Vlog

It’s only a week since I posted my first ever Vlog from my time in Perth and now there is already the next video: One Day on Rottnest Island.

I went with a ferry on a day trip to the famous island and explored it by bike. It was a really nice and exhausting day with the most amazing views and picture-perfect beaches.

Unfortunately, the weather wasn’t good enough to swim or snorkel, but I had a great time biking from viewpoint to beach to viewpoint, spotting a seal and at the end of the day, I was exhausted from all the hills and the wind that I fought against.

I had a lot of fun vlogging and filming that day as the island is not super busy and so I could talk to my camera with nobody listening :D but I really hope it shows you a bit more of the island than pictures could.

If you want to get some more information about my trip to Rottnest Island, head to my Perth & Surrounding Travel Guide and get inspired to go to Western Australia by the upcoming pictures :)

My First Video from Australia – Melbourne & The Great Ocean Road

I am so excited to finally share my very first video from Australia with you!

I planned to film and vlog a lot here, but it is harder than I thought to keep on track and also find time to edit. Especially because I have never done it before and needed to start from the beginning.

But now I am super motivated as I had so much fun looking back on my old video clips from the beginning of my journey and making it into a wonderful memory, so there will be a lot more videos following soon!

I already planned to make one from my Outback adventures and I started to vlog and talk in my videos as well now, so there will be vlogs coming soon!

I hope you are just as excited as I am and curious to see more than just text and pictures on here.

To make my own filming and your watching experience even better, I am grateful to have my brother with me for the next three weeks, who is into videography as well. And I am planning to buy a new GoPro for some great action and underwater footage, as well as using my brother’s drone for some awesome landscape views.
So there will be a lot of great new content from us coming soon! So make sure to follow us both on our YouTube channels and Instagram accounts!

I hope you are just as keen to see what will come and if you have any suggestions, tips or ideas for my videos, please leave them in the comments as I really would love to improve!

New Motivation & Inspiration | Favourites

This month I fell in love with a few new things: people (or their Instagram accounts), food (as per usual) and products that I want to share with you today.

I guess this will be the last Favourites blog post for now because I’ll be travelling with a backpack soon so I won’t have a lot of new things to share with you. Probably there will be a section in my monthly review with my loved ones I discover in Australia so I can tell you about them.

Do you already have any blog post / video suggestions that you want me to make in Australia?

I want to start doing videos and obviously still write articles on here so tell me what you are interested in down below in the comments!

I am thankful for relaxed evenings with good conversations, to spend time with people whom company I enjoy and for sure will miss when I’m Down Under.

Food

I got a few new and old favourites that I want to show you, cause there is nothing better than food – am I right? Also, I am going to share the recipe for my green-protein-smoothie I made a lot in the last weeks and you’ve probably seen it in my Instagram Stories & for my favourite salad dressing that makes all the greens taste great!

I really like eating salad for lunch because I usually have a huge breakfast (like you see above) pretty late in the day cause I work out in the morning. Also, it is a great way to get all raw greens in. Sometimes I have baked sweet potato and steamed broccoli on the side or more raw veggies like tomatoes, cucumber and bell pepper. But my dressing is always the same because I love this combination so much!

Fresh Sweet & Sour Salad Dressing

All measurements are just roughly measured and it depends on how you like it to taste and how much salad you have.

  • 1 tsp olive or flaxseed oil
  • 2 tsp mustard
  • 1,5 tbsp raspberry vinegar (I use a homemade one) or other fruity vinegar
  • 1,5 tsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp tahini
  • pepper

I really love the sour but fruity & sweet taste of this dressing and it fits perfectly to any kind of veggies & greens.

Black Smoothie

We have a lot of Kale in our Garden and because Kale is super healthy and has so many vitamins I try to have a green / almost black smoothie about 3 times a week and get all those greens in. Especially when I don’t have a salad for lunch.

  • 3 handful of fresh kale
  • 1 frozen banana
  • some frozen blueberries
  • sweet fruit like watermelon, pineapple or apple
  • half a jar of coconut water
  • half a tsp of each greens powder (I use Moringa, Barley Grass & Camu Camu)

I really like this combination cause it is cold and refreshing, nourishing but doesn’t taste too green/healthy. Do you like drinking green smoothies as well?

In Berlin I ate a super yummy wrap with black rice, tofu and a tahini sauce. I never ate round black rice before (not the hard, thin one you mix with basmati rice) and it tasted so good, very flavourful and now I want to cook with it at home. I could imagine it in a salad with greens, cucumber, pepper, smoked tofu and a tahini sauce…

I also discovered a vegan „Mortadella“ and I really love it. It almost tastes like the real one (even my dad & brother like it!) and it’s perfect if you crave something savoury but not veggie-tasting on your bread. I eat it with a bit avocado as a butter substitute and I can highly recommend you to try it if you like substitutes.

Inspiration

I just recently discovered @maddielymburner on YouTube and now she is my number 1 inspiration when it comes to health, veganism, food and fitness. She is so lovely, healthy and fit and her videos really motivate me a lot and give great inspiration for meals. She also has a second Instagram account that is more fitness related @madfit.ig as well as a second YouTube Channel where she posts at home workouts that I’ve been doing since two weeks now and I really love them!

I am totally inspired by the idea of minimalism and don’t owning a lot – just what you really need. Something that I want to work on more when I’ll be back from Australia. I am sure it will be a great start to only travel with a backpack for a year and hopefully, it won’t be hard to declutter because I know that I can live a wonderful life without many things I own.

Raw Alignment and her minimalism series on YouTube really inspire me, as well as Pick up Limes, who is another great inspiration!

I found this picture on Pinterest and that’s truely how I want all my relationships to be… This picture really speaks to my heart and soul.

Last but not least I completely fell in love with @annietarasova she is such an inspiring soul and her travel photography and also videography is just beautiful. She also creates amazing art and inspires in mindfulness, self-love and more!
