About US

Hi, this is Anni and Timo! We are two young adventurers from Bavaria in Germany – continually striving to live more sustainable and to make the world a better place. An eco-friendly and healthy lifestyle is our biggest passion – next to our insatiable wanderlust. Our goal is to earn our living by doing what we love – explore, photography, sport, and blogging!

ANNIKA

My early years

I am a 20ish girl, grown up in a small village in the south of Bavaria together with my parents and my sister Lisa. Thanks to my lovely parents, I’ve had a wonderful childhood and spent most of the time outdoors – playing in the mud, running through the fields and plashing in the nearby lake.

Career

I went to high school in Tutzing at the Starnberger Lake and finished school in 2014. After one year of working at a fashion label in Munich, I started my studies in Health Science (B.Sc.) at the Technical University in Munich (TUM). Besides the university, I had several jobs – at a fashion store, a café, a start-up, and at the chair of Preventive Pediatrics. In Autumn 2018, I finished my Bachelor of Science in Health Science.

My sports

Since I was a child, I am doing a lot of sports! At first vaulting and horseback riding, then acrobatics for 12 years. After school, I started with cheerleading, running, and fitness. Occasionally I go skiing, hiking, surfing, diving, SUPing, and cycling. In 2018 I did my first half-marathon with Timo. Fun is my priority when doing sport, and I am consistently curious to try out new sports!

Health and Nutrition

I have always been interested in health and nutrition. In my studies, I have already learned a lot about public health and prevention Nevertheless, the final trigger to learn more about health, was the decision to change to a plant-based diet. This step led me to focus more on the correlation between nutrition and health, not only the treatment and health. It fascinates me how little changes in our daily habits can have vast effects on our whole life!

My adventures

My parents went on many holidays with my sister and me. They showed us already many different continents, countries, and cultures! This aroused a great urge in me to discover the world even more! Nevertheless, the urgent state of global warming made me change my way of traveling towards a more sustainable way.

TIMO

Family

Hi, I am Timo! I am a 23-year-old boy raised by my lovely parents in Munich, Bavaria. I have a younger brother, who is always up for some fun and the next Marvels movie. 

School

To be honest, the school was a pain in the ass for me. 😀 I struggled a lot with the teachers and slept most of the time during the classes. Nevertheless, I made my degree without any problems.

University

After one year of surfing with my best friends and an internship in a sports and fashion company, I studied Sports Science (B.Sc.) at the Technical University in Munich (TUM). At the time Anni and I started our backpacking adventure in Southeast Asia, I had to wait two more months to get the results of my Bachelor Thesis –  luckily I passed!

Sports

As a child, I wasn’t quite athletic, since I was already 2 meters tall at the age of 16. Then I started working out and became interested in nutrition as well. During university, I did cheerleading with Anni in an amazing team. My biggest goal in sports is to finish an Ironman one day – but I’m quite far away from it at the moment.

My values

Health, animal rights, as well as our environment have become more important to me in the last time. These are the 3 reasons why I decided to go plant-based. Moreover, I love to do sport, be active and spend my time with my family and friends.

My dream

I love our world, and I love going on adventures. In the past, I was able to travel around the world and visited many remote places. Now, due to the climate crisis, I want to change this travel habit, concentrate on local tourism, and inspire people to do the same.
