On a Himalayan Adventure: The Story Of the Snow Leopard

There are only 3.000 to 6.000 snow leopards estimated to be alive today - they are an endangered species. By some conservative estimates, you would be 10 times more likely to be struck by a lightning than have the absolute luck of seeing the majestic snow leopard.

5 favourite travel souvenirs and their stories

5 favourite travel souvenirs and their stories To me traveling is like going out there on a mission to collect moments. I leave in excitement and somewhat uncertainty and come back, having gathered all those new experiences and ideas. Whatever may have happened en route, I know more than before.

While Tokyo holds its own magnetic charms, there seems to be a certain sil[...]

The Life-Changing Magic of Madagascar

Madagascar sounds so incredibly remote, wild and exotic that all I could do when my friends mentioned the idea of going was say yes and think about what that meant afterwards. Madagascar was the place where most of my friends had always wanted to go, but hadn't made it just yet. To be honest, I didn't know much about it. I was only craving some reboot-ti[...]

17 questions to ask yourself now and again

There's something about autumn that always draws my attention to the important issues that I was busy pushing away during summer. Future stuff, head and heart stuff, "priority" stuff. So as I was sitting in a Kreuzberg cafe last Sunday (it was raining of course), I started scribbling a couple of questions that I would set out to find answers for this season.[...]
