About Me


Eco-friendly, vegetarian, interested in human righs & indigenous rights, conflict management and cultural customs, but also in photography and food. I'm a foodblogger for some years now and very passionate about food.


"If the love within your mind is lost and you see other beings as enemies, then no matter how much knowledge or education or material comfort you have, only suffering and confusion will ensue." (Dalai Lama)
