Creativity At Work

What sounds more fun? Filling in spreadsheets with data for eight hours or coming up with new and exciting ideas?
I’ll go ahead and assume you went with option two. The opportunity to innovate is something most of us want more of in our daily work lives. Yet often, we feel we can’t be more creative at work because of factors beyond our control. Perhaps your company is risk-averse and likes to play it safe, perhaps your targets are intimidatingly aggressive, or perhaps the sheer size of your to-do list makes adding anything new feel impossible.
While a lot of these may be true, there are also some tips and tricks almost anyone can adopt to keep your innovation muscles strong and ready to go. And like any muscle group, the more you practice it, the stronger, better, and more unstoppable it becomes. Here are 10 things you can do on the

Live A Beautiful Life

Life is short. Live it well. Travel a lot. I hate having my life disrupted by routine. To awaken in a totally strange town is one of the pleasantest sensations in the world.
And I get inspirational everyday thanks to the people I meet along the way. From fellow travelers to local citizens, from bus drivers to shopkeepers, backpackers to cruise ship passengers, beggars to musicians, flight attendants to waiters and waitresses, from students to teachers, street sweepers to fruit juice vendors, volunteers to expats, …

Life On The Road

Artist and writer William Morris once said, “Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.” I whispered these words to myself one warm May morning as I hauled boxes of my belongings into my uncle’s basement. He had generously offered to store 95 percent of what I owned.
Although I am not a packrat, I did value many of my more sentimental possessions, such as boxes of letters and photographs, keepsakes and treasures from my travels, as well as my artwork and supplies. I pared down what I could, but still ended up with a couple carloads of stuff. Then Kyle and I set out on our one-way road trip with the vague idea of moving to my hometown in Northern California. Beyond that, we had no concrete plans. It was a liberating and unnerving sensation.

Loving Vienna

The Austrian capital has always been dignified, but there’s a thick layer of whipped cream around almost every corner. Its baroque architecture, art galleries and museums, rich musical heritage and café’s and cakes have been magnets for tourists. Read on for our pick of the city’s best museums, galleries, lunch spots, drinking dens and more.
Things to See
For many visitors, Vienna’s attractions lie primarily in its fascinating history, which is particularly tangible when walking through the city centre, past Stephansdom and Hofburg Palace, and along the Ringstrasse boulevard. As most museums, churches and shops are within this area it is well worth discovering these sites on foot with a couple of breaks in between at one of the countless street cafés.
Where to Stay
Part of the city’s appeal is its compact centre (‘innere stadt’), which forms the 1st District. All the sights, restaurants and cafés and best places to stay in Vienna

In The Middle Of A Rainforest

Camping out under a starry sky, in the middle of a tropical lowland rainforest is a great way to enjoy the nature. It is a unique opportunity to experience the mystery, comradeship, and adventure of an expedition into a primeval tropical environment. It is an invitation to the unexpected, a chance to accomplish something very exciting, and explore strengths you never knew you had. The appeal of going through those great experiences took me to the Amazon rainforest of Brazil’s most northeastern state. First, let’s learn some facts about Amazon rainforest.

The Amazon rainforest or the Amazon Jungle, is a moist broadleaf forest that covers most of the Amazon basin of South America
The name Amazon is said to arise from a war Francisco de Orellana fought with the Tapuyas and other tribes
