Blog “Into the Wild”

Wanderer. Photographer. And loving all things wild.

“Dare to live the life you have always wanted!”

The alarm went off as alarms tend to go off- loud and waaaay to early.
I am definitely not a morning person; I tend to wake up and think clearly only after at least one huge mug of coffee.

Today was no different.
I’d get up, trudge into the kitchen, start the Nespresso machine, fish for a cup and wait. For what?
I am not too sure. Maybe for something different?
Different colors? Different bird song? Different view?

Today was also the day I decided to change my life. Just like that.
Some would say: “But you have it all- beautiful horses, amazing friends, a nice place with a stunning mountain view. Why would you want to something else?”
I wanted more. I wanted adventure. I wanted to make a difference instead of floating around in every day life.

Today I decided to follow my dream.

Two months and a ticket later, I ended up on a plane into the wild.

“What? You want to fly to Africa?”
“Everything in Africa is poisonous!”
“What? Rhinos? Why on earth would you want to save rhinos?”
“Can’t you take a photography course somewhere in Europe?”
“What in the world is Anti Poaching!”
“Watch those rangers!”
“But you know how to take pictures!”

Yup. I do. But I wanted a challenge. Something unusual. Something that makes sense.
I wanted to find my passion.
