11 Questions asked of me by ang4him:

  1. Why did you start blogging?     was kind of personal reasons. Some memories about something I thought I was over with came back so alive and fresh that I thought I’ll either have to start writing or go crazy ..I decided to write ☺and it helps me a great deal!
  2. If you had to change your name – what would you choose and why?    -I dreamt about other names while growing up- however I would not want to have my name changed now; because I really do like the nicknames my family and friends created out of it 😉
  3. What is the craziest thing you believed wholeheartedly as a child that you’ve discovered is not true?  – that if you made a funny face and somebody else would give you a real good scare right then, you’ll end up keeping that face forever😅oh. .and there was one thing even crazier ..but I decided it’s too crazy for my blog😅
  4. What quote or saying do you hear all the time that drives you insane?    ..”but it’s not my turn” and “where is this or that?”
  5. What is the dumbest way you’ve been injured?                                         Working with my brother in our little garden at a hillside. I was working above him and we were both hoeing weeds with a sharp hoe. My foot slipped downhill, which my brother couldn’t have foreseen and his hoe went right into my foot with full force .. piercing through the rubber boots and all…
  6. What is the weirdest thing that has happened to you in the past few weeks?                                                    While brewing wine,one of my perfectly fine gallon jars suddenly had a round hole in it ..and a whole gallon of wine ran out 😕
  7. What food combinations do you love that others find weird?                -fresh pineapple slices with a spicy powder.. slightly salty and hot chili.
  8. If you could have any super power – what would it be and why?             to fly like a bird..because that would be especially cool in rainy season instead of traveling on mud roads.
  9. What mythical creature do you wish actually existed?                         One of the dragons from Game of Thrones.
  10. If someone narrated your life, who would you want to be the narrator?                                                Probably my husband
  11. What is one interesting fact about yourself that you’d like to share with all of us?                                         I did mention it before in another award post..but here it is again: while striving for the most minimalistic lifestyle possible, I ended up moving from my home country Germany to jungle wilderness of Centralamerica. For seven years I’ve lived completely without electricity, telephone, internet, car and all modern amenities.

  1. 1. So you’ve been gone from blogging for a bit, too? I’m glad I didn’t miss out on too many of your posts, then. Whatever happened, I hope you’re doing better, or are on your way to feeling fabulous. I always offer a listening ear, if you need.
    2. So much wine wasted 😦
    3. Pineapple and salt/ spice? You’re officially insane. Love all the ingredients but on their own.
    4. An award for me? I’m touched! Thank you.


    1. 1. Yes, it just so happened that due to health, birthday preparations and busy dry season I sometimes didn’t get to check on my blog in days. Health improved, dry season will probably keep me busy a little longer..and I appreciate the listening ear and will get back to that in times of need ☺👂
      2. Yes, that was hard to swallow .. especially since we were selling it quite good lately. Weirdest thing was how this round hole got into the side of the jar 😅we’ll be starting more though!
      3. I know 😂
      4. You deserve all awards there are!

    2. Good to hear health improved. That’s important!
      Happy belated Birthday! (It seems like quite a few people had their B-days while I was gone.)
      Thank you for your kind words. Made me blush.

  2. OMG you are an inspiration, living wihout all amenities we all take for granted. How incredible! Do you miss these things or do/ did you feel a liberated without them?

    1. I missed some of them ..even though the feeling I could and can live without is liberating. The last couple years we have switched to a more moderate lifestyle though: we have running water (from a spring) , solar power and internet 😇.. still living a simple lifestyle😉
