You know what? I love love. I really believe the meaning of life has so much to do with loving and being loved.

Back in 2017 I had the opportunity to go to Frankfurt for a day. I didn’t know much about the city then, nor do I know much about it now, except that it is the country’s financial hub and home to several banks and corporate headquarters. I’m sure my overly stereotyped idea of Frankfurt is […]
