There are many ways we are not really at home in… this world:
But, life doesn’t have to be this superficial way.
Join me in exploring ways we can #GetAtHome and find solutions to this problem we don’t even know we have…
Sooner or later, whether you are a tourist or a travel blogger, you will end up in the same places as everyone else. There are some misgivings about that, many complaints (especially now that selfies are being taken everywhere), various philosophical discussions – but also good reasons. 1: Night at the Bund, the Ordinary View […]
Shanghai, a place to see what China has become and perhaps wants to become, and what China is, for the most part, not. At least, not yet. What China is not, for the most part, but Shanghai is: The Shanghai most visible is that rising back forward to glory days, drawing on the allure of […]

Austria’s preeminent figurehead and organizer of trail runs calls, of course you come. Last year, I had gone to the Hochkönigman Trail Running Festival for the Marathon Trail, and ended up also helping interpret the race briefings in English. This year, I had not been planning on coming, but Thomas Bosnjak asked if I wanted […]
No need to go to Peru or across Siberia to discover a landscape from the salon coaches of a Blue Train; no need to travel all the globe all the time to discover “exotic” events. Austria, and especially the same area of the Salzkammergut where I have been spending quite some time and showing more […]
