Trade 43 | Sina Gerke & Julian Vogel

Landing in a new city once again it was yet another trade I quickly had a good feeling about. It was being shown the hidden route to Julian's artwork underneath the hospital that did it... or the tea and cookies looking over the city from the Castle at night... or maybe the sunday breakfast of fresh bread rolls, coffee, smoothies and so many jams/cheeses/spreads to choose from I didn't know where to look. There were a few moments in the first 24hrs potentially responsible for that feeling

Sina worked for Adidas by day and Julian was artist who made his living creating huge graffiti murals around Germany, including an underground artwork tunnel beneath the Nuremberg hospital and his own peace wall project in various corners of the world including Baghdad, Morocco, Jamaica and Uganda among others. Well worth a look. Between them they also ran the Holy Wow Yoga studio next door (that was also my room for the stay).

Two human beings almost too cool for their own good.
