Do you agree that blog friendships are equally important as physical friendships? We definitely think so. In fact, we cannot make any distinctions between the two. You matter to us and we really appreciate our connection!
This is also one reason why we enjoy blog nominations. Some bloggers are over them but it always makes us smile when you remember us.
Today’s edition is the Sunshine Blogger Award from Happy Panda – many thanks for the tag! We would like to share our answers to her questions below:
An irrational fear of yours?
Markus: Lingering, crippling, inexplicable anxiety.
Micah: I am uncertain how to answer this question. What counts as an irrational fear? I suppose I am afraid of scooping out frogs from the soil when I am not wearing my gardening gloves. Ew.
A book that you’d recommend to everyone?
Micah: The Missing Piece Meets The Big O – reading this children’s book led to the best relationship of my life. Has anyone read this, too? I would be very curious how you find it and would love to discuss with you!
PS. You can support us by ordering books through our affiliate link. Thank you very much!
Your choice of poison: coffee or tea?
Markus: Why not both? Coffee when I’m alone, the productivity is real. Tea when Micah and I are together and we can share a tea to appreciate the moment.
Micah: Tea. Chai in India is heavenly. I also love the basil tea from our garden with wild, raw honey. I do not drink coffee.
Would you prefer escaping to the mountains or to the beach?
Markus: Hard to beat the beach life. The ocean is also a great source of food in case of, I don’t know, a lockdown because of a global pandemic.
Micah: I am from the islands so my answer will always be the beach. Also, Markus and I met in Boracay, once voted best island in the world. Our tiny house is by the beach, too!
Weirdest dish that you’ve eaten?
Markus: Probably Burmese Tea Leaf salad. Great dish and really tasty, but I may be biased because it has peanuts.
Micah: Bagoong, a fermented fish or krill paste from The Philippines. The smell alone is an experience of a lifetime.
A country/place that you can’t wait to visit?
Markus: Right now I have this urge to show Micah around France. She will love the nature and the bakeries, and I always enjoy being there.
Micah: Vietnam – five missed flights and counting.
Rate in order of preference: money, power, fame.
Markus + Micah: Power, money fame.
If a genie granted you ONE wish, what would you wish for? (No, you can’t ask for more wishes!!)
Markus: Become force sensitive. Alternatively, a Dyson Swarm.
Micah: I wish for an effective, affordable, and accessible coronavirus vaccine for the world right now.
What TV show are you currently binging on?
Markus: We do not have a TV, but my current time-waster is watching The Viper play Age of Empires.
Micah: I watch YouTube videos, does that count? The last thing I watched is the excellent lockdown series of Esther Perel.
A dream of yours that came true?
Markus: Traveling Asia for three years. The vast majority of good things in my life right now are a direct consequence of setting out into the unknown in 2017.
Micah: I rarely use the word dream in this context. Often, I am just pleasantly surprised by things that life brings to me. Our tiny house, for example, is a small miracle, and our lifestyle as digital nomads pre-pandemic, the full expression of living our personal value of freedom.
A skill that you picked up over the last few months at home?
Markus: Statistics with R, French and chopping up a coconut with a machete.
Micah: Driving, making homemade yogurt and cheese, and forming perfect pancakes and crepes for breakfast.
