However, as time progresses things usually calm down. But while the itchiness thrives, my scalp gets covered with dead cells/ dandruff and hence […]

Millenials: The generation that doesn´t want to wait for retirement to enjoy life

First of all, can we take a moment to appreciate my consistently long blog titles? After a long day of sweating at work, my mother-in-love and I sat down for some simple dinner and a chat: She, in a bikini and wrapped in a towel, still undecided if she should shower or wait for the […]

Quitting it all and moving to a farm, isn´t exactly what it´s cracked up to be
