Monthly Recap: September 2018

Monthly recap is here :) September was crazy busy for us. In fact, we are still recovering. Mostly due to the second item below. Here's what happened:

Monthly Recap - September 2018

We went to Namibia!!!

After being really impressed with our South Africa and Swaziland trip (read here and here), we finally made it back to Africa. This time it was Namibia's turn. We considered making a short visit to Botswana as well, but decided against it in the spirit of "taking it easy". The trip was beyond awesome. Honestly, we have seen quite a lot by now and Namibia really impressed us with a combination of awesome (and potentially dangerous) animals, breathtaking landscapes and very friendly (although sometimes a bit slow) locals. The first blog post about Namibia is out and we are happy to share our impressions with you.

We moved!!!

We finally found a new flat that fullfils all of our demands. If you're thinking about moving - don't do it... it's just soooooo much work. In Switzerland flats are usually not furnished so in addition to all the junk that we own, we also had to take apart, transport and re-build all of the furniture, closets, etc. It's a never ending process. But on the plus side, we now have an awesome trampoline in front of our building - fun times ahead.


Due to us being away or busy moving most of the month, no groundbraking news here. Expect it to be more active in October.

New Videos

An awesome video of Namibia is coming up. The video will feature fun stuff, such as elephants drinking water, lions walking across the road, our jeep moving from a birds eye perspective, Sonja going crazy on a quad bike in the desert and much more :)

What Books We've Read

  • Extreme Ownership by Jocko Willink - another one in the series of books that Jerry's been reading about trying to being better at this whole life thing. Extreme ownership presents and describes valuable lessons learned from the most intense and dynamic situation imaginable - a war zone - and applying them to everyday life situations, mostly related (but not limited) to the buisness world. It's a good and intense read, even if you don't like the whole army thing and attitude.
  • Ten Arguments for Deleting Your Social Media Accounts Right Now by Jaron Lanier - that was an interesting one, considering our situation. The author argues, that we would be better off without social media in our lives and honestly, he makes valid points as to why that's the case. Give the book a chance, you won't regret it.
  • The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck by Mark Manson - In this self-help guide, a superstar blogger cuts through the crap to show us how to stop trying to be "positive" all the time so that we can truly become better, happier people. It's an easy and entertaining read and the book will fly by as you read it, but advice quality wise, I would rank it a bit below the 12 Rules for Life from Jordan Peterson, mentioned in the August recap.
  • Das Café am Rande der Welt by John Strelecky - this one is in the lovely German language, speaking about finding the meaning of life. 

What Movies We've Watched

We actually watched a movie while in Namibia. One night was particularly cold and windy and we were quite unsuccessful at trying to sleep in a tent, so we decided to treat ourselves to an apartment the following night. As a result we got to see The Circle featuring Tom Hanks and Emma Watson. It was not very good but still entertaining. So don't go out of your way to watch it.

What Gadgets We Bought

Almost no shopping this month. Our wallets were light enough due to the Namibia trip and all the costs associated with moving. The only thing we bought was a mobile power inverter, which enabled us to power our phones, camera, drone while cruising around Namibia in our jeep. Quite handy, since many campsites did not have electricity available.

Upcoming Month

No idea!! We're settling in to our new place and we'll do out best to make some weekend tips while the weather here is still warm-ish and sunny, but nothing has been planned yet. Honestly, at the moment, we like it that way. Until next time. Stay tuned and follow us on Facebook and Instagram for stories and photos! See you there ;)

    I was really stressed by Acid reflux issues with my newborn and had consulted Chief Dr Lucky. He gave us a thorough consultation and the medicines were equally effective. In a couple of weeks there was big improvement in my son and we are very pleased with the progress. We cannot thank Chief Dr Lucky enough. Highly recommended.
