First of all - welcome to my new webspace. Is there a better time to open a new page in life than with the turning of the years. Everything's under one roof now thanks to this nice and clean provider Squarespace. I know there's still plenty of corners for improvement but hey - you gotta start somewhere. Meanwhile - I'm more than happy about any feedback, personally or in a comment bellow.
A soundtrack recommendation while you read and let your eyes run through:

This New Year is a year of big hopes and goals for many of whom I know. Sadly, 2016 seems to be one of the crappiest years ever, talking about political disappointments and personal tornados. For me it wasn't a total loss, but it did include a lot of hight frequency heartbeat and questions like "where am i gonna live now?" or "where am i gonna sleep tonight?". It was a highly intense year triggering many fundamental questions of home, work, priorities and family.
There’s a few things I am really happy about of what I did:
- Spent plenty of quality time with my ill stepfather.
- Completed a two week hike of the Camino Primitivo (a part of the Saint James Way / germ. Jakobsweg) which summed up to 330 km of (almost) pure walking. Reflected the experiences in a micro Instagram diary with #caminodiary
- My photos were published in several print and digital magazines.
- Was treating my new passion of hiking pretty well and walked more than ever in Andalusia.
- Started school again: a six month practical training on subjects I was wishing to find out more about since the beginning of the last year.
So I could say - a few goals and dreams really did come true.
Looking ahead to 2017, I do have only one New Years resolution for myself: to take care of my spiritual growth and soul maintenance more than before. While rethinking goals in the past, I noticed that my spiritual development got left somewhere on the track and needs some pimping up. At the same time, this is what I wish to all of you - be good to yourselves, meditate more, write diaries, do therapies if needed or treat your body (and soul) with a yoga holiday. After all, no matter what comes or happens, begins or ends, you can be the one most trusted home and friend to yourself. Let it be your happy place - clean, comfy, cozy.
And here's something I'm doing for the first time - the year, 2016, in photographic fragments. Enjoy, and see you soon.
