From Seoul to Berlin

It’s been a week since I got back from my trip to South Korea. Mr. Jet Lag came for a visit for a few days but has finally said goodbye. I think that’s the only disadvantage to traveling. Well, then again, I guess the other tough bit is leaving pieces of your heart all over the place, but that’s another story for another day.

I spent the weekend in Berlin with a dear friend of mine and managed to swing by Pinke Panke, a really neat children’s farm there. It’s really inspiring seeing so many projects like this around Germany. Each one is so unique, which makes me want to hurry up and see what my whole vision is going to look like! 🙂

Here’s a house that the children built. Isn’t that impressive!?

Every farm that I’ve visited has had a fire pit. That’s definitely a must. I mean, who doesn’t like s’mores and Stockbrot?

I’m sure those busy bees love these lovely flowers and nasturtiums! Nasturtiums are so delicious!

Some type of oven is something I’ve seen on all of the farms as well. Who’s up for some delicious homemade breads?

I’ll be heading to Verden next week to visit another farm there as well. Stay tuned! 😀

One of the places I call home

I’m currently in Berlin, loving the big city flair that’s all around. I really like the feeling, the vibe that this city gives off. There are so many different types of people living here, different cultures, different communities, each with a plethora of stories to tell. Walking around the city today, I tried to imagine where each person was from. Where does she feel at home? Does he have more than one home? Or do they even have a home? Are their roots still firmly planted in rich, life-giving soil somewhere? Or have they been uprooted, fighting for a space to call their home on this beautiful, blue planet we inhabit?

This is something I am.

THANKFUL for the places I can call HOME.

And this is one of those places:
