First things first: Thank you so much for visiting our travel and lifestyle blog! We are Anni and Timo, a couple from Germany with passions for travel, health and a sustainable lifestyle.
We love to travel the world sustainably and responsibly, we follow a plant-based diet, and enjoy exercising and working wherever we are. Over time, we noticed many people are interested in the same lifestyle as we do and some encouraged us to write about it.
We followed their advice and started not only posting our trips on Instagram but also writing whole articles about them. It was especially important for us not to be another “normal” travel blog, but to combine all our interests – travel, health and sustainability – in one website.
3 Reasons why we start a travel and lifestyle blog
- A unique combination of travel, health, sustainability
- stop climate change by achieving a sustainable and cruelty-free world system
- Do good, connect, respect, support and inspire
1. Unique combination
We have never seen the combination of travel, health and sustainability on a blog before. However, we believe that exactly these topics fit together perfectly and therefore decided to write about them.
Total income and living standards on earth are rising. Therefore more and more people can afford to travel the world.
Traveling is a great way to connect people, understand different cultures and helps to understand the world itself. These are great benefits and we think it is important that we start thinking more globally in order to consider the health of the entire planet.
Unfortunately, increased world tourism puts enormous stress on the environment and may affect the destruction of what itself depends. The major negative impacts of conventional tourism are damage to the landscape, waste and pollution.
Therefore, we want to appeal to the tourism industry to focus on health and sustainability aspects. In contrast to conventional tourism, sustainable tourism the concept of visiting places and make a positive impact on the local environment and simultaneously preserve the global environment.
A long-term healthy lifestyle – including fit traveling
Being healthy is essential for a joyful life and it should be easy as well as affordable to achieve! We studied Health and Sports Science at university and since then we cannot stop learning about nutrition and fitness.
After lots of research, we decided to change to a whole foods plant-based diet. As our diet has an enormous impact on our own health and on climate change at the same time, we believe it is inevitable for our planet that we consume more plant food and less animal-sourced food.
How to escape and stay in shape?
While exploring the world, we experienced how difficult it can be to maintain a healthy lifestyle. That’s why we decided to report on how we keep fit while traveling and promote the concept of active, plant-based holidays.
2. System change, not climate change
Climate justice is a global challenge. But in order to make a change, we should start to listen to the science. We (addressing the western world especially) also have to change our lifestyle, economics, and last but not least our politics.
This isn’t achieved in one or two days, but it is a process that needs acceleration because science tells us we’re running out of time. With our blog, we want to contribute to this acceleration.
Whether its little things we can change as individuals or campaigning for large scale changes on economic and political levels – we need to understand the urgency of this global issue!
3. do good and inspire people
Actions speak louder than words!
But what if nobody finds out about your actions?
We believe that the greatest impact can be achieved if you act and spread your message at the same time!
However, we believe it is not about any of us being perfect, doing everything right or always having the “right opinion”. Rather, it is about uniting people to meet daily challenges together.

Our greatest goal is to live as sustainably as possible – in harmony with nature and the climate.

In order to live up to this claim, we constantly question our own actions and try to constantly improve ourselves. On the one hand, we want to set a good example with our lifestyle. On the other hand, we also want to become active by encouraging the economy and politics to finally make a change towards sustainability.
