🧜♀️ WAY TO HEAVEN 🧜♀️
All the way down to the beach.
It lights the way.
The way to heaven.
🖌 PAINT IT 🎨
Paint it black.
Paint it white.
Paint your life
However you like.
Paint it green.
Paint it blue.
It is all up to you.
🏄🏼♀️ SURF 'N' TURF 🏄🏼♀️
The power of water, the speed, the waves. Carving, with my knees down. Salty skin from tip to toe.
As the wind blows through my hair, I feel this tremendous freedom. Nothing can stop me if I don't want to be stopped.
It's my life. It's my decisions. It's me. Hello world. Here I am. Full of convidence and joy.
Back at the beach. All muscles ache. Tired. Hungry. Time to have lunch. Dish of the day – coincidently: surf and turf. Enjoy ✌️🎉
💦 SANUS PER AQUAM 💦
Do you know the meaning of Spa? I ones read that it is an abbreviation for 'Sanus Per Aquam' – what in my opinion makes perfectly sense. But actually, it is related to the Belgium city of Spa, which in Roman times was called Aquae Spadanae. British tourists visited Spa for recovery. So Spa became an example for other health resorts. For me, Spa is related to relaxation and slowness. Time stands still and I am healing through water. Sanus Per Aquam. Even if it is under a waterfall of the Seven Cascades in Mauritius.
🌳🍃 UNDER A TREE 🎶🐦
One of my favourite moments in life really is sitting in the shadow of a tree on a warm, sunny day. Feeling a gentle breeze on my skin. Birds singing. Leaves whispering. As simple as that 🐦🌳
But sometimes I have to travel to the other side of the world to find this moment. Even if I love our German winter: the longer it lasts the more depressed I feel. My skin can't breathe under the weather-proofed jacket. And my soul can't fly with all this heavy clothes on. What a relief to feel the sun not only on the top of my nose, but on my entire body. In the shadow of a palm tree 🌞🌴
🌤️ OUT OF THE BLUE 🌦️
I've never seen such an inconsistent sky before. Sometimes it is raining out of the blue. Or I am bathing in the shadow (yes, that is enough for my North European skin), watching the heavy rain on the other side of the bay. I simply love this tropical warm rain 💦 But I admit to be glad about the mostly sunny days we are enjoying here. Sun is already going down as we pass Pieter Both Mountain close to Mauritius' capital Port Louis. There are these heavy clouds in the sky, reflecting the yellow of the sunrays. And I am just happy to be a part of this wonderful scenery 🙏💙 What is your favourite moment between sun and rain? 🌦️

The time goes by

Christmas in Mauritius means long days, short nights, high temperatures – summer! The splendid flame trees are in bloom with their bright red fiery flowers. Tropical fruits are ripe and sweet: mangoes, pineapples, litchis. On Christmas Eve, people decorate their mostly natural pine or spruce Christmas trees. And then it is time for gifts and fireworks. But even if the tropical Christmas might apear so different to me, in the end it is the same. It is all about the family. About peace and harmony. And about love. Merry Christmas everyone! Have a wonderful night, wherever you are 🎄🙏💕
🦄 DREAMING 🦄
Three days in paradise and I feel totally recovered. My skin soaks up the humidity and sun. My muscles relax in the warmth. Winter is so far away that I totally forget about it. Christmas trees seem strange in this world. It is a world of endless summer. Out of my dreams, implemented in reality 🐦🌴🦋
☮️ PEACE ☮️
How would you describe the feeling of peace? For me it is related to a calm breath and awareness of my energy level. Instead when I am busy, I get lost in thoughts and do not notice anything regarding my body and soul. I am like a hamster, struggling the whole day and falling asleep as soon as I stop running. Sometimes I do not even notice that I am hungry and it is just out of habit to have something for lunch or dinner. In this case I don't enjoy eating and feel bad afterwards. Thus, peace really means to stop thinking and to start being. I feel peaceful sitting in silence with a cup of tea. Or listening to music that reminds me of a relaxed situation in the past. Or natural smells like soil, summer rain or snow. Or doing sports and feeling freedom. What are your positive sensations that help you to really feel an inner peace?
🏔️ 180 🏝️
My life does a 180 degree turn, within one day, somewhere above Africa. From hell-being to well-being. And as we land in #Mauritius
, I feel alive again. Too far away from work, bureauCRAZY and the typical stress towards Christmas and the end of the year 🎄🤶 Right at the airport I listen to the strange voices of tropical birds 🐦 Humidity encases me and my dry skin breathes a sigh of relief. We stay outside for the rest of the day. Under palm trees or in the sea. We do #wakeboarding
🏄🏼♀️ as a first step for #kitesurfing
. And following my motto of the day, I do a 180. Things are different in the southern hemisphere. 180 degree different.
