I'm Sarah, 33 years young and inspiring you to live the shit out of this life. To break free from routines, to  break free from anxieties and to live your dreams. Bold, brave and passionate.


From an unhappy full-time employee to a freelancing digital nomad. From 6 weeks of annual vacation to 6 months of traveling. From consumption and clutter to liberating minimalism. In an intercultural long-distance-age-gap relationship with my one and only soulmate.


This is a blog to laugh out loud, to cry silently, to mull over your life and to get started - always honest and straight-forward. Find romantic travel stories, thoughtful life stories, philosophical ideas, cheeky humor and a ton of encouragement for your own path!

"Nobody can tell you exactly about the meaning of life, but one thing is for sure, It’s not being the richest guy on the cemetery."
