My personal favourite Articles of 2016

Super Lunch at Jamie’s Italian at Westfield London – this has been my only full Day in London during this Trip, and as I was wearing brand new Shoes the evening before for Theatre both my feet were covered in endless blisters, making it absolutely impossible to walk more than 100 meters at a time. Therefore, I spent the whole day at Westfield Shopping Centre, what else to do in London, right? The Staff was so incredibly friendly and sweet, it was actually a super hot Day but the wind was pleasantly blowing by my Table in the shadow and also the Food was just super amazing (the Truffle Tagliatelle, aah!). This Lunch has just been perfect.

Catching the sunset with a Peugeot 3008 GT-Line – this has been my last Trip in 2016. In Italy, a Country I absolutely adore, with a fancy Car and in Tuscany during sunset. Good Music jamming on Italian radio, empty roads, endless mountains and hills and have I mentioned the beautiful sunset yet?

  1. […] Once we have survived the Coronavirus Pandemic, not only other possible viruses may transfer from wild animals to humans and infect humanity again, climate change still isn’t on hold either. We have some wild years ahead of us. So, I have been thinking recently.. is travelling still a sustainable thing to do? Fast-paced travel has taken the Coronavirus around the world in a matter of days to weeks until one country after the other detected first cases. With less international transfers, this all could have happened differently. So, how do globalization and its downsides affect travelling in the future? Travel will definitely change. It has to change. It will definitely be less, but also to different places. Less popular and less frequented areas, thus, less other humans. You can read more about my travel schedules of the past years in these articles: 2019, 2018, 2017 and 2016. […]

  2. […] For a second time in a row, what a year it has been. The Coronavirus still simultaneously holds our world at pace, whilst turning and spinning personal worlds around. I dearly hope you haven’t been too affected by the Virus personally, may it be with an infection or even the loss of a loved one! Even if it sometimes shakes our lives too hard, it is important to focus on the good that’s yet to come. Therefore, my travel schedule has been on another hold this year. Hopefully more (distant) travel will be safely possible soon. However, until then it’s also great to explore your local area. For comparison, you can read more about my travel schedules of the past years in these articles: 2020, 2019, 2018, 2017 and 2016. […]
