This wouldn’t be such a bad spot for a bit of self isolation. Definitely missing being on the road discovering new places like this however staying inside is the number one priority right now, and the quicker we all do our bit to stop the spread the sooner we can all get out and continue exploring! 🙌🏼

POV: where the only thing you have to worry about is what flavour daiquiri to get next...
Monday morning coffee thoughts. Obviously this isn’t my coffee this morning but I’m throwing it back to last week in the sun overlooking the rice paddies because I can!
1. It’s ok not to be ok, right now more than ever.
2. Routine is keeping me semi sane right now
3. I’m savouring every second of my daily outdoor exercise time.
I’ve noticed the routine I’ve naturally fallen into isn’t vastly different to my usual one and it’s giving my that little sense of normalcy at the moment. If you cancel I’d really encourage you to get into some sort of routine if you’re struggling just to see if it helps (I don’t mean lists and strict timetables- unless that works for you and them that’s cool too!) 🙏🏼 Sending you all love and light this Monday ♥️ #morningcoffeethoughts#routine#lockdown

If we have anything to learn from Coronavirus issue then it is about how world leaders, general public and media will behave when it comes to act on climate change. There are key points that we can learn from this issue.
1 No one is going to take climate change seriously or as a grave threat until a major tragedy ends up causing a huge loss of life and property. Take a hypothetical scenario, in 15 years, a glacier melts and floods oceans sinking some important cities of the world due to which the world comes to a halt. This is a major crisis for the world and all the climate change deniers are now nowhere to be seen.
2 For some governments climate change will be a PR opportunity, while others will keep on taking time because of incoming elections, or a new business deal.
3 The blame game will start among the countries until the world leaders and media finds one country to demonize while completely ignoring the businesses that were responsible for it. Eventually the blame will shift on that country the only aim for which will be to divert attention for a while.
4 The pandemic has also taught that world leaders and agencies will never come on common terms and follow a protocol because everyone has certain interest that will be compromised.
5 If media continues to be like today, then we will see rise in misinformation, fake news and added paranoia. During Tsunami incident, a similar wave of misinformation was seen but since we didn’t have internet, the issue didn’t turn out to.
Dear 2020, you still have time to redeem yourself.⠀

Outfit inspiration for the day: Blair Waldorf or Jennie Kim. What do you think? 😜
I have to admit that during the first days of my self-quarantine after coming back from Philippines/Bali, I felt quite bored. I’m well aware that it’s a first world problem but I’m just gonna be honest here. I also think it’s normal In this situation, as I had spent the previous days running around like crazy trying to figure out how to get home all the while scared that some countries’ borders might shut and I would be stranded somewhere. And then suddenly everything in my life came to a complete stop and I was locked inside most of the time. However, now 1.5 weeks after starting my quarantine I feel truly grateful to be in a safe place and that I’m healthy. I also started my daily gratitude practice again where each night before falling asleep I tell myself all the things I’m grateful for that day. Usually there are so many things - even small ones like a silly joke someone made which made everyone laugh and forget the Corona craziness for a moment - that I fall asleep while telling myself all these nice things 🙂💕 How are you feeling now that you’ve most probably also been locked in for a few days? #SelfQuarantine#GratitudePractice#StayHome#WirBleibenZuhause#SaveTourism

Last week our 2 week trip to the Philippines and with it my 3 month South East Asia adventure came to an end after only 5 days.
Out of all the South East Asian countries Philippines was the first to close their borders. I had never been to the Philippines before and wasn’t planning on coming back any time soon. So of course I could be annoyed about this. But instead I decided to see it as a sign from fate, the universe, my guardian angel (who knows?) that I should return home in that very moment, as times are just too dangerous and uncertain right now. Being a frequent traveler who spends a lot of time in airports of many different countries I could easily infect myself and/or pass the virus on to others.
When we found out that the Philippines’ capital Manila was going into lockdown for a minimum of 30 days only 24 hours later, we were shocked and first didn’t know what to do. In only 2 hours since we found out the flights to Germany rose from 750 to 2,800€. It was crazy. So I booked a flight to Bali for a 12 hour stopover instead. I literally just slept their, had a healthy breakfast and got on my flight to Germany in the afternoon. As you can imagine, the airport was mental. I spent 1.5 hours just in the check-in queue and I started queueing 4 hours before my flight btw 😛
Now I’m back home in Germany and I’m really glad to have made it in time. Bali has stopped issuing their usual 30 day free tourist visas now and Germany will probably close its borders sooner or later as well. National curfews are just a question of time if you ask me.
For the next while I’m staying at home and I urge you to do the same even if your governments haven’t officially ordered you to do so yet. I know it can be boring but this is really a first world problem. The earlier we all stay home and stop spreading the virus, the earlier this will all be over and we will be able to enjoy our usual lives again. Until then I’m dreaming of traveling and wishing everyone stays safe and healthy 🙌🏻✨✈️💕 #StaySafe#StayStrong#SaveTourism#WirBleibenZuhause

Hello Friends! As you can imagine, travel has ceased and clients have canceled, so I’m getting creative with how I photograph and work during this time while also doing my part by practicing social distancing.
I would like to capture families or individual portraits of people on their front porches or stairs or in their front yards, for a small fee. No contact necessary!
I am wanting to accomplish a few things here: document what this time looks like to Chicagoan families and individuals and create some beautiful imagery that reminds us of where we were (physically and emotionally) during this challenging and uncertain time.
If you are interested in being photographed for @storiesfromsixfeet, please reach out here or via email so I can get you on the books for this unique and safe portrait session.
Thank you and STAY WELL! #StoriesFromSixFeet is a project aimed at staying safe, being smart, and creating connections from six feet apart.

For me, traveling is so much more than just exploring new places.
It’s a way to find my inner self, the hidden gems in this world and what makes me feel most alive. It never disappoints or bores me. Nothing beats that🐚

Since we are spending time at home I thought I would sort through some of my old travel photos. This is the Busselton Jetty - the longest wooden jetty in the Southern Hemisphere. There’s a small train than takes you up and down the stretch of the jetty as well as an underwater observatory where you can check out the marine life. @busseltonjettyofficial
I’d love to check out some of your travel memories - comment below and I’ll hop on over to take a peek!

if I close my eyes I can still feel a tiny hit of the adrenaline of this flight... and I’m holding on tightly to these little hits in these quarantine days where this kind of adrenaline is in short supply 😌
