About me

Hej, lovely soul!

I'm Michelle, a twenty-three-year-old redhead from Germany. I grew up in a little village in the west of Germany, where our house was placed at the edge of the town next to farmsteads and fields, so I enjoyed the smell and noises of the farm life and spent a lot of time in nature. I am almost done with my study for Applied Literary and Cultural Studies with the minor subjects sociology and philosophy and spent my study abroad in Finland. Currently, I am working on my plan to move into a cottage in the north of Sweden. Välkommen to my journey!

I AM...

...a photographer - I see the world through the lens.
...a musician - through music I heal.
... a painter - while drawing I forget time and space.
... a nature child - in the forest I am in peace.
...a traveler - the nordic countries are my destination.
... a curious nose - I like to try new things and to extend my horizon.
... as friendly to animals as I am to human beings.
... a lover of slow living - appreciation of the little things in life.
... a little crazy sometimes - ordinariness is boring.
...a dreamer - I want to live in a cottage in the Scandinavian countryside and be happy.

I am Michelle, nice to meet you. Who are you?


  1. Hello Michelle, i want to be the first to comment :) people will take the time to read all of your lovely work on this wonderful webpage and forget to comment on how wonderful it is. I found this page connected to your UTube videos, just wonderful vlogging while on your adventures in Finland. I have just started up a UTube channel called 'An Englishman in finland' and i'm trying to learn the vlogging art, but alas i'm old, but still a tryer haha. I just wanted to say that i love your video style, it really captures something, innocent and real, and me and my fiancee just stare in wonder, your just amazing and i want to wish you all the best in everything you do, and i hope you get that lovely cottage in the North. Love & Peace Simon :)

    1. Hello Simon,
      thank you so so much for your sweet words! They made my day! I hope you have the most wonderful time in Finland, I envy you so much!

      I send you lots of love,
      Hyvää päivää,

  2. Such a beautiful presentation of you! I recognise a lot of these things in myself, since I´m also a photographer, nature lover, plays the piano and lots of creative things :) I´m so happy I just found your blog <3
