#02: Culture shock Mumbai

India, Mumbai:Mumbai, officially named Bombay until 1995, is the financial capital of India and the home of India’s Bollywood film industry. Also called India’s “maximum city”, Mumbai is known for its extreme standards of living, fast paced lifestyle, and the making (or breaking) of dreams. It’s a cosmopolitan and increasingly westernized city that’s an important base for industry and foreign trade.

Its very crowded, dusty and dirty and loud. If you want to cross a street, you have to fight for life and you always have to be aware of their price system and dealing, because everyone is trying to cheat you.

…Well, not everybody. I met so kind and nice people, which helped me, guided me, bought me tickets, food,  just to be sure I am fine and well treated in India.

# Lessons learned today:
India is bigger than I expected.
Everything needs longer than I planned. So take more time! Plan with more buffer.


#01: Stopover Dubai. The 4-week-habit plan

Dubai Airport:  After 2 hours of sleep. Awake at the Dubai airport. Time to make a plan.

The 4 weeks habit plan. Idea: Choose maximal 3 habits you don’t like in yourself and change them into good ones or choose a good habit that you like to become a habit. Bit these “good habits” should stay achievable. By doing things consciously and regularly, you can change your bad habits or non available habits into good habits in 4 weeks. Write it down and start tomorrow.

Here my 4-week-habit plan:
1. Smoking, when drinking (probably learn drinking without smoking)
2. First thing I do in the morning after wake up: Coffee & Laptop – Change into meditation & Yoga every morning first. Especially mediation, It is what I need to ease my confused mind.
3. Today we are all focused on ourselves and even me sometimes, more selfish than unselfish. Collect more positive karma and make every day someone smile. Its all about giving and receiving in life.
# Lessons learned today: Buy a power supply adaptor for Dubai to work if I have to stay here more than 1-2 hours at the airport


#00 What’s all about?

Why do I start this blog?

  • Someone recommend to me when to write a blog. I felt lazy, so I decided to make a video. But my video files get corrupted during the flight. So I had to switch spontaneously to a written blog.

Why I am doing this blog?

  • Actually I’m feeling lost and confused, about my life and what to do next.
  • That sounds to you maybe negative in a kind of way. But it isn’t. Being lost is an opportunity to change your course, find yourself, figure out what you really want and in the end find more happiness in life.
  • India! This country is my first stop
  • Follow my journey through life and lets try to understand and learn about life together
  • I am just a student of life
