Less than two more months and we will be done with all the exams.


(Feels so good using that word.)

Because for us students that means :

Freedom. Enjoying the summer (without having too worry about a presentation). Going to the beach. Relaxing. Travelling.

That last keyword leads me to today’s topic of CAMPING (of course that was totally accidental…).


For my part I can say that I’ve never been camping before. Don’t ask me why. I don’t know.

Of course, I’ve already slept in a tent. But not for more than two days in a row…It’s probably not just my thing. I need a real bed and enough space for all the stuff I’m taking with me when I’m travelling.

(Believe me, I always have to unpack before a flight because the scale’s hitting above the 20kg limit).

But there’s some hope that I finally will be going camping thanks to Stephanie Bellanger, Amaury Watine, François Gustin & David Dethoor:

Working as product designers, they created the mobile mini house.

That might sound like a playhouse for kids that can be taken on the road but that absolutely wouldn’t cover the sheer magnitude of their invention.

It is Friday!

You know what that means right?!

Ummmmm, for me that means four free days, no school. Just doing whatever you want.
And this is exactly what I’m going to do later today.

I’m going to see 17 Again with some of my girlfriends.

For the fourth time. Yup. Crazy, right? I know…

Anyway. I was just searching the web (one of my favourite activities but not just since having this blog) and I had this huuuuuuge craving for smarties. That’s when I came across this fabulous picture (Source) Read the rest of this entry »

If I had three wishes, the first thing I would tell the magic fairy is that I’ve always dreamt of being able to fly: Just floating weightlessly through the air, feeling as light as a feather (even if one sometimes feels as heavy as blue whale…)

(By the way, if you wanna know the other two wishes I would go for, just scroll down a bit and use your imagination…hint: meeting ***)

Anyway. Flying. Right. Getting back on track.

Have you ever heard of JUKARI? Read the rest of this entry »

Hey you techies out there!

Are you geared up for some more fancy stuff?

I just came across something that I have NEVER heard of before.

But maybe, that’s because I had no clue that someone could come up with such an invention.

Okay, sorry, I tend to waffle a lot. But that’s because of my genes…

Anyway: There’s something called a rollable/foldable keyboard.

No, not that piano-like keyboard, but the keyboard for you laptop or PC.

It is made out of silicone (Hollywood’s plastic surgeons know what I’m talking about) and is splashproof, robust and dust-protected (important to know for all the allergy-sufferers amongst you).

Note to myself: It’s also easy to clean…(I hate myself when I am having a cookie and find the crumbs three years later between my laptop keys, already a bit moldy…)

It can be easily plugged into your PC via USB-connection.

It also has built-in key illumination which can come in handy if you’re sitting in the pitch-black forest with your 55 kilogramm PC and your 180 gramm rollable keyboard, finishing your first novel.

A situation that is very likely to occur…

But you never know. So, you better get it today before it’s sold out.

Even if it seems like it; I’m not getting any commission for every item sold. All I’m trying to do is increase the purchasing power and boost our economy…

Do you live on your own? Do you find it hard to create enough free space in your teeny-tiny student pad?

If your answer is yes: Keep on reading. I got something very interesting for you.

If your answer is no: Go get yourself a drink and don’t waste your time with reading this boring post. Read the rest of this entry »

According to, the number of people choosing to travel alone has increased astoundingly in the last ten years.

But what exactly is it that makes so many people decide to travel on their own?

It’s the allurement of the unknown, the independence, the simple freedom of not having to care for fellow travellers.

Travel agents, hotels and other companies throughout the travel and tourism industry are recognising that there’s money to be made by offering exciting destinations to solo travellers at prices that are decent. It’s the travellers that stipulate the new developments in the market.

It’s not too surprising. We live alone, we work alone, why not travel alone? (Source)

The best alternatives of expensive hotels are couchsurfing or hostels which offer affordable rooms with breakfast.

If you don’t fancy boring hostels I can highly recommend the Sand Hotel in England, the Ice Hotel in Sweden or The Tsala Treetop Lodge in South Africa!!!
