Back in 2018 I started my first Camino de Santiago. The Camino is a very famous pilgrims way to Santiago de Compostela in Spain and people from all over the world love to walk this way. The french way – the so called Camino Francés – starts in Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port.

You have to cross the Pyrenees (1400 m, 26 km) on your first day on the Camino.

Travel to Barcelona


We have a word in German – Weltanschauung – literally for seeing the world, but in the meaning of philosophy of life or ideology. The point is: To know and understand the world, you have to see the world. The best way to do this, is to travel. It’s an expensive affair, but you ‘ve got to spoil yourself sometimes.

Two weeks ago I traveled to Barcelona, three days for exploration, rest and relaxation.

Travel to Prague


Sometimes I need a distance

I love my family, my friends and my work, but sometimes I need a distance – literally, to keep the balance right. That’s why I went to Prague by bus last week, found an inexpensive hotel in the city center and had three days for shooting.

I haven’t been there for over 30 years and nearly all my recollections of the city where lost. The only thing I could remember was the medieval “Charles Bridge” (see picture above).

In preparation for the travel I downloaded an app called Fripito, witch is a digital travel/photo guide. I bought the “Enchanting Prague” by Michal Vitasek per in-app purchase. Now I had a guide for the best places with fantastic views of Prague in my pocket. Not only that, combined with the navigation inside the app I could reach all the places from every starting point I wanted.
