Thank you for being lovely blog friends! Visit their blogs, too, if you are looking to discover other good reads!
From Joana of Gigantic Thought Bubble:
Where would you want to be right now?
Markus: Southwest of France, by the coast of the Atlantic. I’ve been camping there a lot in the past and can’t wait to go there with Micah. Hopefully soon.
Micah: I would very much like to be sat on the counter of this small family-owned noodle shop in Ubud called You&Mie and slurping a steaming bowl of veg ramen.
We eat here everyday whenever we are in town. It is not chicken soup but it is definitely good for the soul.
Take note of the shop – you do not want to miss it in Bali.
What is one thing that you are afraid to write about?
Markus: I’m mainly afraid of being wrong on the internet.
Who is your favorite blogger/vlogger right now?
Markus: If you like eccentric British guys, Lindybeige will be right up your alley. He knows a lot and likes to talk, mostly about history, specializing in sometimes hour-long videos without so much as a single cut.
Micah: I watch Planterina on YouTube.
What is the last thing you ate?
Markus: Casserole with potatoes and brussels sprouts. Used to have it with ham, but even without meat it is extremely tasty.
Micah: I ate a couple of packets of peanuts with my sister while watching Chef’s Table BBQ Episode 2 featuring Lennox Hastie – what an impressive guy.
Pineapples on pizza. Yes or no? (there’s only one right answer).
Markus + Micah: Yes, obviously.
From Amy of Delicate and Brutal
What is your favorite book and why?
Markus: Currently, Life 3.0 by Mark Tegmark. Few things are so seemingly surreal yet acutely relevant as artificial intelligence.
Micah: Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. I kind of like it crazy.
What is your favorite movie and why?
Markus: In Bruges by Martin McDonagh. It is the only film I know that manages to be a tragedy and a comedy at the same time. Also, it deals with death, guilt and damnation – who’d say no to that?
Micah: I like the first Kung Fu Panda movie. During my dark time, I watched it on repeat. Nothing like getting life advice from a bunch of talking animals.
What are you passionate about & why is this so important to you?
Markus: Perspectives. I love discovering new perspectives on anything, because it enriches my understanding of the world and my place in it.
What is your favorite time of day and why?
Markus: Early morning. Calm, and full of space.
Micah: Snacktime, because, hello, snacks.
What is your favorite smell and why?
Markus: Freshness after rain, the dead of night and a dusty road – makes me feel alive.
Micah: Lemon after zesting and parmesan after grating. You just know you are going to have something good.
Why did you start blogging?
Markus + Micah: It always seemed like a fun thing to do and thanks to the pandemic we finally did it!
What is your favorite piece of clothing and why?
Markus: Wool socks. The epitome of comfort and coziness.
Micah: My shark onesie. So comfy. I also have matching fluffy shark slippers. Do not envy me.
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
Markus + Micah: Our answers are still the same as here.
What is your favorite season and why?
Markus + Micah: You can check it out on our previous Liebster Award nomination here.
What is one quality you love about yourself and why?
Markus: I can be very empathetic – which can be exhausting, but is ultimately a force for good, I think.
Micah: I am able to apologize when I am wrong and not bullshit people. I would rather be honest and cause a war than fake peace. Then apologize, obviously.
What advice would you like to give to your younger self?
Markus: Come off it, you.
Micah: Why so serious?
