.the man who sold the world.

an open letter to decades.

i miss you david… i´m sitting in the mowed meadow, thinking about your songs, searching some answers. millions have listened to your voice, but nobody understood what you said.

what happened to the man who sold the world?? i´m telling you – he´s president of the united states of america now. lucky you, you don´t have to see all the sadness in the world now. millions of people living afraid and worried, with no hope in mind. and i think they need your voice again to give some comfort. what have the two of us to do now?? yes, i know never give up. >> you´re laughing, right?? << i can hear you!

you already did your work. a whole life given to meaningful words. now you’re gone, and i still miss you!

nothing changed. i´m sitting in the mowed meadow, listening to david bowie – the man who sold the world.

everybody is a welcome refugee, impressions below

.90 miles away.

we felt honored to visit the „90 mile beach“. as you can see below, another incredible piece of nature originated millions of years ago. we met no human being.

i really get mad about the whole industry in our parts of the world. murdering our nature sources is a REALLY good idea, folks. yes let´s do it *sarcasm hint*!  you went on a collage, graduate most successfully, grab a rare job in the industry and make a ton of money. so do i have to illustrate you this imaginary picture? why it is on vogue to be the most sensless idiot in the world instead of being a hero for millions of people and take care of our surroundings? why are we that stupid?? it is possible to have both- a good working industry and taking care of the nature. the result is that companies just earn millions of our money instead of billions. so what´s the deal?!

did you know that a simple plastic bag, the most of us are using for shopping in a supermarket or their favourite clothing stores, needs more than 400 years to decompose??!! For a 15 minute walk back home??

MORE THAN FOUR HUNDRET YEARS!

and it is not gone! it is just so small that you can not see it anymore. and what you can´t see does not exist, right??

WRONG, trump elector!!!!

how many plastic are you using a week?? 30 million of plastic bottles are used in bali, PER MONTH! three hundred and sixty million of plastic bottles a year! and this is a really small island. they sell this aluminum bottles everywhere and you can ask for a free refill on tab water.

did you know that roundabout 80% of all oxygen where prodused by the ocean?? And just 20% from our green lungs?? can you imagine how many waste we dumb in??? did you ever heard the size of the plastic-waste island in the pacific?

dude what should i say- go to collage, graduate as good as possible and help your environment. do some veteran things, produce recyclable materials, invent a plasticless world or non nuclear power. whatever you do, don´t be one of this stupid cunts which makes rich people just richer, so they can´t trying to built casino´s on the most sensible eco system in new zealand, just for fun, like the owner of camel tabak, years ago.

please- be smart and safe my fucking planet. otherwise you are not able to make your urgent holidays from financial stock market in the caribbean…cause there is non.

.mangawai.

we´re going up north… i forgot more and more the crazy civilization, the overcrowded cities, smok, silly problems, and the unimportant life i had so far. i am nature drunken. things become so irrelevant when you are surrounded from epic mother nature. you seek of fame? i seek for inner peace. and this is probably one good way to find it. i had my first dream in english – it was strange, and i barely can´t remember. this is the other side of the world!

.z-land.

brothers and sisters-

as you may read in the last entry, we did it to new zealand!! currently – auckland city!

fun fact – auckland is listed on the world´s most liveable cities at the 8th place in 2016!

what an amazing place! they really know how to enjoy life and it´s so slowed down. you can imagine how sweet a place can be, when it´s normal to say >thanks for the good ride< to the bus driver! yes, we have a pretty good time in our lovely air b´n´b in grey linn and watch the tides from the breakfast table. 72 hours are gone and we already joined a guns n´roses concert with slash and axel, 10 minutes walk from home! so i crossed from my bucket list: have seen slash playing his double armed guitar, whilst slamin “sweet child of mine”.  √

now we just stray around, have some coffee and soak up all we get in between, until we will receive our camper van in the next few days. i think we will pimp it super nice and get the party started!

oh! by the way… i love you hanna, thanks for being the best travel buddy and beloved wife of all times!

.soulfood.

hey friends,

while i´m texting this short blog, i´m sitting barefoot in auckland, in the middle of a rugby court.

so this is a mixed view of the amazing food we had so far in bali. the typically smartphone trash everybody is blogging. YEAH here it is. get jealous or not, but that was super delicious! we really recommend the fruit and vegetable/fish bowls, which you can get there everywhere. and thats another sign, that most of us in the first world are really behind the trends. crap convenience food instead of simple, super fast and healthy goods. you know why?? because they care!

.moving on.

god damn. three weeks are gone like an eye twinkle. we have to leave tomorrow *crying*

but, hey! this was a freaky amazing time on this island and we met so marvelous people, made so new friends, have seen nature from a spectacular site, had awesome food and impressive culture. all in all – bali nailed it!

i will kick some throwback posts from time to time, because i made trillions of pictures and movies, but had not the time to edit it. we will heading off to new zealand tomorrow in the evening for a really long time. so stay tuned, if you wanna dream a bit as we do. reality is really killing it this time and i will do my best to capture it and give you an uncensored version of life at the opposite site on the planet. this was just the warm up shooting, now we´re getting serious!

so this is not “good bye”, this is “see you in a bit, bali!”

.clean your soul.

we were very honored to share a special event at the pura tirta empul. it´s a very sacred place, were hundreds of hindus and especially balinese people gather at full moon and black moon to wash their souls, clean their bodies from bad karma and get blessed.

what a nice ritual which i really recommend. i´m not super religious and i know we have some similar ritual in the catholic church, but this fits me more than our ancient customs. and i really belief in karma. so i always try to respect human being and animals and even those poor idiots who treat everything like a trashcan. and all you trashcan people out there… it will find you, when you don´t expect it!

the people are so peaceful here – from head to toe! and i think this is really missing in other persuasions. and please don´t take it too serious. religion is just a filler not the finish. a good surrounding can bring you peace inside, and a smile will took it out. so if you are really unlucky in your job or your environment, than that´s probably not your right and final destination. you need a change and you will find friends everywhere around the globe.

language is not a barrier. hate is a barrier. bliss and joy, that´s what everybody tries to find. so i repeat myself more than once, but get your ass off the cosy couch, snap a passport and join life! nature is happening, and life is happening, now, and now, and now, and now and now….you missing it… and now and now, and now…. and safe my fucking planet!

.thanks for having us.

we are getting deeper and deeper into our little bali adventure. the kindness of every single person blows our minds. i mean what happened to our society in europe and north america, that we unlearned to smile?! everybody – everywhere! i think, the quest of happiness really made us unhappy.

traveling opens your soul in every direction, everybody all over the world have some problems from time to time… that´s human being, but how do you handle it really makes the difference. and i think we should not take every single problem or detail too serious, just smile it away. not everything, i´m not stupid, but begin with small things.

now we know what hate brings us along the way. everybody is scared about terror and refugees, dumbasses for presidents, or ludicrous public figures. so we forgot the good things, the good politicians, the amazing artists, and the foreign friends we made so far. it starts with a decision.

please bring back some love, good spirit, and some good prospects to the future. i really looking forward to this…

and don´t forget – beautiful things don´t ask for attention!

.lousy living.

here is a little story that goes like this:

once there was a time – a young couple decided to go afar.

then what seemed like an eternity, they open their eyes and find themselves  in one of this unique places mother nature ever built. but that will not last for a long time. why are people making pigs of themselves and treat this awesome places and the locals like a plague of locusts?!? i don’t get that… all you’re children will not be able to feel this uniqueness of mother nature and this warm hearted marvelous people we met in bali here.

so we are more than happy to made that decision now and be able to bring joy to the people and spend a good time with them, to give something back, and have an interaction with the environment, and not to take everything away like a bacteria rankles a host  - this is  a first world problem – to take all you get because you have some money and so you feel more superior to someone??? but for a really good karma and for a good footprint on this planet…  give something back and be patient and kind to everyone, universally! you can take it from me, the people don´t give a shit about your bank account, they have a reaaaally lucky live without all of you!

so safe my fucking planet asshole!
