Fresh Air and Spring Cleaning

Almost on time for the beginning of spring, I was thinking, I can bring some fresh air in my blog and clean up a little – not so easy now with more than 70 posts. Perhaps you’ve noticed, if not, no worries. I changed the navigation so for you (and me also) it will be a little easier to find the topics you are looking for.

First I thought that “Wavehuntress week” and the “Happy Weekend Quotes” need their own sub-category, because they are currently more likely everywhere and nowhere. So in future you can find both in my “Impact Zone” easy to find and have everything at a glance.

Impact Zone – yes, but why?

The Impact Zone is the area in the spot where the waves break, there where it’s all comes together. I liked the name better than “Stuff” or “Other” or “Misceallous” and it fits: The “Impact Zone” is where everything happens. So I not only give weekly link tips and share wonderful words and quotes – the “Pearls Of Salty Wisdoms“, here you can find now my “How to’s” – just as a collection – and personal insights into my life. I’m planning a lot and can only promise that it will determine turbulent. Therefore, the term “Impact Zone” is just right!

Traveling – now with Stories and Tips

Again, I thought to myself, that a division is not so wrong. In the “Travel Tips” you can now find all sorts of useful things which will help you to simplify your travels, such as the “Hostel Survival Guide”. But also places and “beautiful beaches” that impressed me lot.
In the “Travel stories” I’ll tell you about what so fascinating about traveling for me and what I have experienced
abroad so far.

Fit for surf – almost the same

Here you further can find basics and surfspecific workouts, that will make you fit for surfing. Moreover, I’ll sometime give a kick in the ass, I have to give myself every now and then, which you can also benefit. Just not talking about the delicious recipes and introduce you to some foods that you maybe don’t have on your daily mealplan.

surfing

I’m crazy about surfing, you have probably already noticed. Here you can find now everything has to do with it. I will continue not to talk about contests, surfers or board shapes or something like this – there’re many goog pages, but I’ll simply write about the love of my life (hence the heart;-)) and all that it’s about for me.

The rest – Contact and About

Beloved: Use the Contact button and diligently write me! Follow me on social networks, if you do not now, stay updated. Ask questions, comment, criticize me and let me know what I can do better.
If you want to know what drives me to write this blog, visit my About page. Here I write about my motivation and what the surfing so much fascinated me is that I like to stay tuned to write this blog.

I hope you like the new strcture and enjoy your time on this blog even more. Until then:

Under the radar Travel destinations

Last week we talked about the Top-Travel Destinations for 2015. But there is so much more to travel than touristic photo ops and long-lined attractions. It is really amazing what you can see when you go beyond the surface of a destination. Now here are the Top-under-the-radar-destinations:

Travel with backpack or suitcase?

For me it is a question of philosophy. The suitcase is for tourists, the backpack is for travelers. But obviously both have their advantages. Read here:

The hunt for the perfect wave

or: welcome to my blog

The boards that means the world

I always thought that surfing is kind of cool and it was, in retrospect, far too long on my ” things I want to do in my life ” list. In 2010 the time has come … I had a job, I saved a little money and I had vacations. It was time to cross surfing off my list – that was the plan. At this moment I could not even imagine how substainable that would affect and change my life. My first time on the board, riding in the whitewash of the first wave,… the feeling that is so hardly to describe, to be one with the elements has taken control over me so I knew from the moment : This is exactly my thing! … I tasted blood!

Surfing: the moment of pure happiness

To be honest, I am not a really good surfer, I am pretty unambitious related to sportive surfing. But I love to paddle out when the sun rises, to sit in the line up while wait and watch the ocean. For the purpose to start to paddle at the precise moment, jump on my board and ride the wave. For that little moment I do so much now. Hours of flights, swimming and fitness training, paddling until your arms fall off, getting washed a thousand times … all for this little moment of pure happiness.

Surfing: I couldn’t  get rid of it

And when the trip is over, my heart is bleeding. Surfing won’t let me go. I started to realize how surfing became more and more a huge part of my life. Once a trip is over, I start to plan the next. In the meantime I dream of the ocean and it’s beautiful waves.

That’s why…

It’s all about surfing and everything that comes with it. It’s about the longing for the ocean, the search for happiness and a life for the next wave. On this blog you will find Travel and fitnessadvices, workouts, healthy recipies, facts and information about countries, cities, surfspots, how tos, galleries that will make you keen for traveling and so many more.

A little Teaser?

In the next weeks for example…

  • I will take you to Barbados and show you the most beautiful beach I ever have seen so far
  • you can travel with me to portugal and check the waves with me
  • I show you how you can find a perfect hostel for you and how you going to survive there
  • I tell you my secret recipe for the best pancakes in the world
  • I make you “fit for surf” and
  • I explain you, why it’s no a good idea to surf in green boardshorts in Indonesia

And that is just a small insight, so
