Sarinadownunder got married! Whoop! July 2019. On this wonderful journey called life I had one of my best times the last weeks. I still have to digest it all. I don’t even know where to start to write about it! It might be easier to draw a picture of the whole last months and the situation. I try to keep it short. Back to Berlin  First of all I am back in Berlin since mid March. It was more than […]

A long way home.

Some mornings start with making the decision how to spend them: The sun is smiling outside and no cloud is to be seen. Going for a run? Taking dog to the beach? Stand Up Paddle boarding? It’s a tough decision indeed! You’re wondering what the heck I am  doing? Usually I end up having my tea, tidying up, responding to messages and get going. But every day is different. I am mostly working every day either morning or evening or […]

Yes, it seems like a tradition that we go to Canada for Christmas. But if you know the people you know why we even went this year all the way from Perth! It’s the beginning of December, Heiko arrived a week ago from Berlin in Perth – Later than planned but at least still a few days to warm up from Germany and before Canada. I am happy he is here, because this week we lose an amazing Person in […]

Bali in between

Bali in between classes I looked on my watch, a present from Heikos mum. The watch is ceramic and white, one I was looking for a long time without any bling bling on it. I calculated how much time I had left for my statistics test I was sitting. Not the given time but not to miss the flight to Bali.. It was a Thursday in September. We planned a short trip to Bali, Indonesia for 5 nights til Tuesday, […]

Western Australia Roadtrip

From Perth to Karijini to Dampier to Exmouth, Ningaloo Reef. One of the best ways to discover a country is by camping and riding along in a car. So Heiko and I found ourselves in our Kia Spoartage and lots of camping equipment mostly borrowed from friends (Thanks!) to see the Wild West. Well, it is not really wild! First stop Kirkalocka Station (600km north of Perth) – Kirkalocka Farmstay. We stayed in a shed, just used our bedding. It was […]

Milestone Take a breath and move on. I’d say I managed a little milestone with finishing my first semester in Australia! I mostly really enjoyed my Business course and it required lots of time, mostly for the assignments. But I learned lots of new things and I could feed my brain again! After I finished my last exam in Australian Business law it took off a whole lot of pressure. Setting surroundings But it is not the only thing happening right now. I have been upset about […]

Hello everyone! Weeks are just flying by… I am just on my first mid term break during Easter. It is still weird that autumn is coming instead of spring. Heiko arrived in Perth 4 weeks ago and he is adapting slowly. But he is leaving to Germany in 1,5 weeks again for 6 weeks so I have all the time to study, yay! Meanwhile we used a few days to discover our surroundings. BBQ near the river and with City view, sunsets at the beach […]

I lay awake. It is 3 am in the morning, it is hot and a thunderstorm is raging outside for hours now. The thunder is so loud that I keep waking up. Oh well, I need to go to the bathroom anyway. The dog is pottering around in the rooms of the boys. I lay down again. During the day were 37°C and I was waiting for a call that told me that I could pick up our new car. […]
