For 2018, I wanted to start out something that can potentially help other nature-lovers when thinking of destinations or planning their next outdoor adventure.

Inspired by the innumerous wonderful walks we’ve been on, by the gorgeous places we’re discovered off-road sometimes accidentally – wandering around – and simply by the passion I feel for being on the move out and about, I am putting the word WANDERLUST in the name of my new blog. It’s taken from my native German, meaning an intense appetite for hiking 🙂 According to Wikipedia, Wanderlust is a strong desire for or impulse to wander or travel and explore the world.  Check out the link above to read more interesting trivia about Etymology, Sociology and Psychology of the word.

I invite you to join me seeing our beautiful planet through different lenses. Gain fresh inspiration and thus more diverse perspectives by looking not just through another lens but many different ones – think different colours, different styles, different angles and so on. B/c we must not forget,

  1. things are not always as they seem
  2. things usually have more than one side to it


We can decide through which lenses we look at the world and therefore how we see it. After all, “the results we get in our lives depend on what we do. What we do depends on how we see the world around us.”

“If you want to make minor changes in your life, work on your behavior. But if you want to make significant, quantum breakthroughs, work on your paradigms.” (Stephen R. Covey)

My wider objective with this new blog is to actively contribute to the proposal above of seeing the world through different lenses, by writing about experiences, encounters and travel journeys of mine that can sometimes be a bit out of the ordinary. I would like to share those special observations and help others, potentially see different approaches in their own situations.

Hence, I challenge myself to adapt my style of writing and the information I put into my blog to achieve this objective, incorporating little details that might make a difference or putting information in context respectively. Let’s see how I can make this work…

Thank you for accompanying my blog(s) and pls do give me your feedback, I am curious to hear from you 🙂

To that end, have a fantastic year 2018 and may you live a life that you love!
