Hello from Reykjavik!
Writing this, I’m sitting relaxed in the lobby of my hotel, spooning up warm sweet potato soup, and I must say I feel thoroughly chilled out. I’m not entirely sure why, but every time I am in Iceland I notice that it doesn’t take much to be genuinely happy. The tranquility of the place, the landscape and the feeling to have a bit of time to breathe is enough. Iceland must be one of the very few places on this earth that I already miss while I’m still there. Crazy! I need to come back as soon as possible!
All in all, the week was relatively quiet, at least seemingly. All my focus was on shootings for my upcoming project, of which I can’t share anything yet, which is why the news-flow was a bit slower. As the shootings didn’t leave much time for other activities, I simply didn’t have much I could share.
So, while it may seem like I’m taking it easy, I am actually working my butt off, not only for the upcoming TV show but also for another big upcoming project: next week I’ll teach a course for AMD (Akademie Mode & Design). Basically, I’ll be hosting a workshop – ‘Advanced Blogging’, in which I’ll share skills andknowledge beyond the basics, including SEO and social media. Very exciting indeed, and definitely a new challenge!
I mentioned a couple of times that I’m really interested in working in the educational field, at leas to find out a bit more about it, and if it goes well and proves to be beneficial for all involved, I could definitely imagine working more along those lines. After all, I have accumulated quite a bit of knowledge and experience over the past couple of years, and I think it would make a lot of sense to pass some of those skills and know how on to other girls. Whether that will be at AMD or on another platform is not clear just yet, but it may actually be quite tricky to really do it – working as a lecturer would mean I’d have to pretty much be locally present most of the time, and I’m just not there yet.
Which is not to say I don’t enjoy being home: after 2 weeks on the road I’m really excited to head back to Berlin. Anyways, I’ll head to Portugal again shortly thereafter.

today is election day in Germany! Please remember to cast your vote, it’s really, really important! I don’t want to bore you with the slogan ‘if you don’t vote, you elect the right’, but unfortunately it’s true. So, please engage with the respective party programs, and don’t throw away your vote. Oh, and if you live in Berlin, please vote for a continuation of operation of Tegel airport!!
