Mrz

.the answer is you.

people are made to follow other people, as you can see in social media or an even worse example – the ww2 or the last president election in the us. the smarter one under a few, try all their best to take advantage of the simple minds. but a simple mind, is not always an idiot, don´t get me wrong!! for example a farmer isn´t an idiot, because he´s “just” growing vegetables or breed cows. he gets in charge for a hundred of people and give them food and is smart enough, not to be a banker.

the more intelligent people try to get as far as they can from the first one above. the more time i spend in this country on the other side of the planet, the more i think, this is the farest point you can reach, not to get in touch with those freaking poor souls. they are wrecking everything what is from importance like: love, nature, family & friends, piece & quiescent or wildlife and the creatures who cannot fight back. to name just a few under thousands of possible matches.

it´s nasty to watch this from the outside whats happening in europe, america, africa and asia. so much hate, so less humanity, misunderstandings, political propaganda and greed for money. as you may know, when you are working on a project and you are really deep into it… it´s good to leave it for a while, and ask a third person to give you another opinion about it. that´s what i´m doing on this journey.

so the answer of all those problems are you.

YOU ARE IN CHARGE

of all this what´s happening arround you. you are responsible to vote, recycling, take care of you’re neighbors, kids, friends, homeless people, environmental polution, your job, or your employees, line manager, sanity, ecological and financial prudence, … . you don´t have to work until you´re dying in a job you hate from 9am to 5pm. quit, search another one you really love and give the possibly best you can. We are not born to work so hard that we´re dying from the consequences. and i think more than 75% of all people have this kind of daily work.

it´s just thoughts, it´s just my opinion, it´s just a scenario! you may think about the consequences and the truth.

.if you try to be individual.

well, i met a lot of people so far. different nations, societies, professions, sexualities, tribes, clubs, couples or homeless people and so on…

what can i say to 99,7%,  you are not individual even though you try. we are just one under zillions of people. each of them try to be individual. non of us is!

think about that, it´s not always about your look or your opinion, it´s how you act, and how you treat your environment. it happens exact the same somewhere around the globe, each second with another one which nearly thinks the same.

ohhhh- and if i talk about individual people and being unique… stop shopping at primarkt, or woolworth, or similar. YOU´RE NOT!

they are the most fucking companies on the planet, include a few other, which i will slap/hit/kick/spit/shit in a few posts later in the blacklist of companies!

even though i hope your twin in mind is not a nazi, rapist, trump elector, psycho, stalker, kardashian, or another freak of nature. it´s totally ok to be a white guy listening gangster rap, and totally ok to be a black heavy metal geek. we are all black, redhead, white, gay, straight, curled, freckled, disabled, 6 fingered human. we are all born on this one planet by coincident. you cannot feel superior to someone who is born by coincident in another country, behind a wall a government built, or a imaginary borderline, and has another skin color or accent. you are so stupid if you think like that. it´s accidental! otherwise i hope, you will have this life you hate right now, in a future life!

.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

.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!

.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!
