The Adria

In 2018 I was fortunate enough to travel to the Adriatic Sea (shortened: Adria) a couple of times, both privately and professionally. A large part of the eastern coast of the sea belongs to the State of Croatia. A country which used to be an insider tip for travellers for many years. Today Croatia is visited by Millions of people from around the world. Many of them go to Dubrvonik, which is famous for being the real life version of Kings Landing. But still there are many hidden beaches and islands in Croatia where you can find time for yourself. Get sure to stay until break of dawn so you can see the sun descending into the Adriatic sea.

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 Far North

The far north of Europe is actually pretty fortunate regarding the weather. The reason being the Gulf stream which makes it possible to cultivate even fruits around the Norwegian fjords (pictures 2, 6). Though if you go uphill from the fjords your surroundings change pretty quickly and you will experience marvellous but very alien ice deserts like the Hardangervidda (picture 1). That’s planet Hoth from Star Wars Episode V by the way – the scenes were shot there. One of the biggest and historically most important towns in the far north of Europe is Bergen at the North Sea. For centuries it was an important port and a center of commerce, especially regarding the trade with fish. Today it is a lovely student town with a lot of culture and museums (pictures 3, 4 and 5).
