It is official: I am leaving Germany to move to South Africa. 4 days ago Julia and I moved into our first own flat here in Cape Town and everything feels so amazing and new: I honestly have to pinch myself to realize that this is not a dream. But why Cape Town? What am I going to do here? How long will I stay? It is about time for a life update blogpost.

Living in the right place- Why choosing where you live does matter

I am going to be 100% honest with you guys: a lot of the time that I am in Munich I am miserable, unhappy with my life and I have zero inspiration to do things. Whilst travelling I have been to some extremely powerful places on this globe and whenever I have been in such a spot it felt like I was another person. Suddenly everything was easy and fell into place. I truly believe that choosing the place where you want to live is crucial for your life to be good. The reason that I am sharing this with you right now, is simply because some of you might be going through something similar and by writing about it, I hope that I can inspire you to realize that the problem is not you, it might as well be the place you are currently living.

Sunset Beach Lodge & Spa

The first time my mom and I were in Cape Town, we had to look for a new accommodation after our first 2 nights, since the place we previously stayed at was fully booked. We decided to randomly drive around, which was such a good decision, since we discovered Sunset Beach Lodge & Spa in Sunset Beach which has been our go to accommodation whilst in Cape Town and  the part of Cape Town where my parents ended up buying a house.
