i grew up with the attitude that you have to work hard for your money and nothing in life is for free.
i don’t exactly know where my intention to travel the world came from but i guess i was just curious if life is really about buying stuff we don’t need, with money we don’t have to impress people we don’t even like!
kai and i decided to go to prague for a couple of days because we both wanted to go there since a long time. i found really cheap bus tickets with the flixbus for 15 euros one way. it only took 4 hours by bus to reach there. Continue reading
i decided that i will fly back to austria to visit my friends and family for a bit. kai said he will join me so after the vipassana course and two nights were we did couchsurfing in the big and busy city mumbai it was time to make our way to the airport for our long journey to europe.

i wanted to do a yoga training and i also wanted to attend another vipassana meditation course. i already did one in new zealand but unfortunately i hardly practiced the meditation anymore so i wanted to do another course to get back in a good routine. i chose india as country because its a meditation technique which started in india many years ago. before we came to india we applied for a vipassana course and we didn’t get an answer the next month so we thaught the course is already full.
