Blueberries or Raspberries?
What does sustainability mean to you?
To be careful with the resources available to us. But also to be careful with nature and animals. I'm just trying to take one step at a time and deal more with environmental issues and adjust my life accordingly. Be it in terms of my travels, consumption or nutrition. But everything step by step, because it's not about being perfect, it's about taking steps in the right direction.
Yoga or hammock?
Always the yoga mat first and then the hammock to relax.
Your ultimate tips for using piece products?
I don't think I have THE ultimate tip, but I'm a big fan of piece products and have almost completely switched to them. I don't have anything else with me, especially when I travel, because it's much easier to take them with me. They don't leak and take up very little space. Just put a piece in a small tin and put it in your bag.
What would you like unlimited access to?
Languages or knowledge or simply puppies.
Your greatest adventure?
Buying my own van. In the future I would like to go on vacation with the camper van more than getting on the plane.
What does water as a resource mean to you?
We couldn't exist without water and even though my personality is closer to the element of fire, water is my absolute favorite element. I love being by the sea and feeling the salty water on my skin. Water also somehow means freedom for me.
What "impact" do you want to leave behind in the world?
I just want to show people that life is too bad to be miserable and that there are small things that can bring joy. I would like to share some of my positivity with as many people as possible.
Your ultimate water-saving tips for on the go?
Pack waterless products naturally and reduce hair washing to 1-2 times a week. Although I have to say that I now also do it at home and if you bit through it for a few weeks at the beginning, your hair gets used to it very quickly.
Surfboard or snowboard?
I like both very much, but since I'm an absolute summer person, the surfboard wins.
who do you admire
People who are committed to certain things such as animal welfare, the environment or children and who also carry and live this outwardly and inspire so many people.
Which decision in your life would you reverse in hindsight?
No decision at all, because they are simply part of my life. I've learned and developed through many, so I wouldn't reverse a decision.
Which tip changed your life?
I really don't think a single tip has changed my life. But in recent years I've noticed that it's just incredibly important to always listen to your heart and do what's good for you.
Your 3 must-haves for the desert island?
Tobi, my friend and a rubber dinghy to come back. I love the sea, but I wouldn't want to be stuck on a lonely island.
Is it true that everything was better in the past?
No, I don't think so at all and that's definitely a matter of opinion. I'm glad I grew up in today's world.
What question should we have asked you?
How is Tobi?
