Perspectives on Japan

Travelling through Japan one is noticing certain reoccurring shapes and symmetries which are mirrored in nature. Some being more obvious like the traditional roof shapes (pictures 1,2,3), which resemble the most famous mountain of the country Fuji-san, others are hidden and have to be found by the foreign visitor. While in general the Japanese prefer strong lines and square patterns over round ones, the curated gardens feature very often soft and oval shapes making for a relaxing and nice atmosphere (pictures 4,5,6).

Along the Elbe River

A couple of months ago I had the chance to travel to a part of Central Europe I haven’t been to before. The initial plan was to travel around Northern Bohemia in the Czech Republic. At last we ventured into the neighbouring region of Southern Saxonia too, as the borderlands are historically and geologically intertwined. The region is shaped by the Elbe river, one of the longest in Europe. Along the river you’ll find many towns, some are charming and touristy, while others are more industrial in nature (pictures 2, 3, 6). The highlight though is the magnificent landscape shaped by sandstone (picture 5). Climb one of the many mountaintops around sunset and enjoy the great view (last picture).

The Port City

The city of Gdańsk (or Danzig in German) has a long tradition as an important haven in the region of the western Baltic Sea. Its history is very much intertwined with the history and tradition of the Hanseatic league, a trade confederation of sailors, which dominated the waters of Northern Europe for centuries. The city was largely destroyed during the II Word War and restored after the war by Polish specialists. Today Gdańsk is visited by many millions every year from Poland and abroad. It offers beautiful architecture and a rich cultural life.
