Hello, I am Korinna!
After doing a yearlong voluntary service in Rwanda, I wanted to see more of the world, to get in contact with more people to see how they think and act. In the past 5 years I visited over 35 countries like that. I’m looking for a way to live in harmony with nature, to find my own suitable style of living. I’m looking for inspiration and those “wow”-moments you have when something unexpected happens to you. But for those moments, you need to be open to perceive them as those – and mostly you have to get out of your comfort zone.
I’m a peace maker. I’m an all time happy kind of person. And I’m an explorer.
I’m not a “more cities in less days” kind of traveller. I like to stay in places for longer time and to really get a feeling of the place. There is no better way to learn than to make first-hand experiences. Furthermore I like to be in contact with people. People can tell you a lot of things that you want to know or didn’t even think of!
Apart from that, I try to take care of my health, the people in this world as well as the environment. I’m into sustainable, organic and fair products (food as well as clothes). At the moment, I am a semi-vegetarian (yep, that word exists) who loves to try vegan recipes. I do not want to be part of “faster” and “more”. We have to refrain from our throwaway society and from the materialistic believes that more things make us happier. Instead we have to return to our roots, concentrate on real values again and on things that truly make us happy.
Everybody has a dream. Start living it!
Here is my confession.
I’m not a native English speaker – German is my mother tongue – and sometimes I am really sweating when writing in English and when trying to express my thoughts the way I would love to. I see this blog as a way to improve my language skills. So if you find grammar mistakes, spelling mistakes and the like, help me achieving that intention by sharing your wisdom (=corrections) with me!
Since I feel I can better convey my message in German, I recently switched to a bilingual website in German and English. You can access the German version here.
