My name is Katrin. I am very open-minded and love to try new things. Collecting experience points is the meaning of life, at least in my subjective reality. The insight that I have always the choice how I view something helped me a lot to maintain a positive attitude – whatever may come.
Curiosity keeps me going; therefore I have a lot of different interests besides my travel addiction: I read a lot about psychology and philosophy and the depth of the rabbit hole. I am a hobby artist and writer. Because of my personal history I gained a lot of knowledge about holistic medicine or rather naturopathy – connected to that I became a passionate plant based cook.
Working out belongs to my life. I meditate every day and love dancing. Recently I started implementing Yoga and Qi Gong. Finally, I found ways to turn my mind off. Predominantly, I am introvert and highly sensitive, but on the other hand I love adventures, adrenalin sports, festivals and novelty.
My dream of location independence is finally coming true: I decided to pursue a career in Web Development. My self-taught curriculum started in the beginning of 2021. Until I can make money with these skills, I will keep my side job at the university where I used to study. I work as a tutor for scientific writing, the work is small, but I might need a calm place for web conferences from time to time.
Aside from Web Development, I started to experiment with different digitals skills: Writing blog articles, creating educational content and using layouting/design software.
My nomad life will start in september. I am planning to spend the autumn and winter in Portugal and Spain. I am looking forward to living closer to nature and closer to like-minded people. I already changed my lifestyle radically and I will continue to do so, because the lifestyle that I was raised with revealed itself as madness – regarding my health as well as the planet’s health.
I don’t have that much experience with permaculture (beyond a one month stay in an off-grid project, but its theoretical fundamentals inspired me and its ethics became my guideline: Care for the Earth; Care for the People; Fair Share.
