Zanzibar bliss

It’s been a year since we started this blog, and a year since our book „From Sansibar with love“ came out. Five years since we met.

A couple of thousand sold copies later, several talkshows and many articles done – still in a bubble of bliss. Although, I must admit, too often separated between Hamburg and Zanzibar, getting into fiercy Whatsapp wars, but then also reunited in Mallorca, Winterhude, Victoria Garden and elsewhere.

Here a little road map to German-Zanzibarian commonalities. Stay with us – and Zanzibar.

Hmmh, shady balcony in Kiponda: My first house in Zanzibar and the day we met



Flirting in Palma: My friend and pillar in Mallorca, Ute, also introduced us to this sunset bar above Soller where bliss set in



My first fan? Ahmed pointing to a poster of our reading in Spain, I am very greatful for his steady support


Smoothies and eggs – very relaxed with a luxury breakfast in Zanzibar


Train to nowhere? But no: From Soller to Palma in Mallorca, we realised we don’t only go well but travel well together


He is a model, I am just me, or what?
