I first found out about Seattle rapper Grieves when he put out his first Rhymesayers album, Together/Apart, in 2011. The same year I saw him live in Hamburg with fellow Rhymesayers artists Atmosphere, Evidence, Blueprint, and Brother Ali. His second album on the label came out three years later, and, in August, he finally released his fifth album, and third with Rhymesayers Entertainment, Running Wild.
For this week I had originally planned a short and simple post on the new Grieves album, but I think there are some words left to be said about the German election results. Nothing new really, and I will keep it very short as the results simply continue in the same direction of Brexit, Trump, etc.
... even if it's a dress.
Somehow I still can't get over how beautiful my ten days in Malta were and keep looking for ways to share more pictures from the trip. You can see a few of them in my Malta sneak peek, my vegan Malta post, and my outfit post.
I thought I'd share a few sunset pictures in which I'm wearing one of my favorite dresses.
This past weekend, I traveled to a rather peculiar destination if you ask most Europeans: Tirana, capital of Albania. Due to the country's isolation from the rest of the world for a large portion of the last century, it is surrounded by many myths, no less thanks to the movie Taken. Albanians are generally assumed to be criminals active in the sex and drug trade, and many people are afraid of traveling to Albania.
I found a decently priced flight from Athens to Tirana on Skyscanner and decided I'd make up my own mind, rather than listening to what other people who have never been to the country say. I didn't expect much, but went to Tirana with an open mind. I was pleasantly surprised and have to say that I liked Tirana even more than other cities in the region.
As I mentioned in my Malta sneak peek, my apartment got broken into the night before we left for Malta. Needless to say, I urgently started looking for a new place. It was a bit difficult to find a furnished apartment that met my requirements, and I definitely had to sacrifice some things, but I'm happy to announce that I have finally moved into a new apartment.
Ah, traveling as a vegan... By now you have surely realized that I love food and travel equally, and there’s not much I like more than finding vegan food in new and unfamiliar destinations. That has not changed on my recent trip to Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria
This spring, one of my favorite hip hop groups CunninLynguists finally came out with a new EP, “The Rose EP” which I wrote about here. It’s part of a series of three EPs, and the second part was released in late July containing another three tracks.
I just got back from a long weekend in Sofia so I haven't really had time for a new post. Therefore, I decided to opt for something that still shows you a bit from my recent trip to Malta (check out my sneak peak and my detailed posts on the trip itself and the vegan food I had there).
As you all know from my recent vegan travel post and my sneak peek, this year's summer vacation was spent in Malta, a country I had planned on visiting for a few years now. Malta is the smallest country in Europe by size, but has a relatively large population, which means it is extremely densely populated. In fact, aside from small city states like Monaco, Singapore, and the Vatican, Malta comes second only to Bahrain in terms of population density.
When people first hear about minimalism they often find the idea of becoming a minimalist very difficult because we live in a capitalist and consumerist society. We are constantly bombarded with advertisements for new products we should buy, and it can be very difficult to resist the urge to purchase the latest gadget and the bigger and better version of whatever item you may own.
