Fifty Shades of Grey in Aberdeen

On the flight to Aberdeen, a passenger said to me: “Aberdeen is a special city. Everything is grey. The whole city. I bet you’ve never seen so much grey at one place in your life!” Ha. Well, he didn’t know that I grew up in an industrial area in Germany, the “Ruhrgebiet”, a place which was dominated by the coal and steel industry for a long time and which isn’t very famous for its beauty. I basically grew up between the rests of a dying industry – so I thought, Aberdeen couldn’t shock me.

New York: Sunrise at the Brooklyn Bridge

On the flight to New York, someone told me that the sunrise on the Brooklyn Bridge is spectacular. And so I had a plan for my short visit to New York: Getting up early, being on top of the Brooklyn Bridge right on time to watch the sunrise and then listening to the super-extended version of Frank Sinatra’s “My Way” or alternatively “Empire State of Mind” from Alicia Keys on my phone. Just to get into the ultimate New York City mood.

Street Art in Miami: Wynwood Walls

The best thing about flight to North America: I finally manage to get up early due to the jetlag. And I even get to see the sunrise for once. With a hotel next to the beach in South Beach: even better. But what isn’t beautiful in Miami? Beautiful people, beautiful beaches, beautiful light – beauty was born in Miami. And on top, Miami is full of art – like at the Wynwood Walls.

Getting close to North Korea – a day trip to the DMZ

North Korea has been on my bucket list for quite some time now, since I watched some interesting documentaries on this surreal country. Going there is not that easy, you have to travel with an approved tour operator and during the whole trip you are being watched by your tour guides. And there’s that feeling to support a government which might not align with your own beliefs… Well, maybe I’ll never make it to North Korea anyway. But still – now I got at least to the border to North Korea, the demilitarized zone (DMZ). Yay.

Washington DC: What to see around The Mall!

A piece of history, just like that. Sometimes this job takes you to places you never imagined. And sometimes you will find yourself in the most interesting moments of history. When I got to Washington, it was shortly after the new American president was elected – and two days before Christmas Eve. The city was empty, everything was being prepared for Christmas or the new president, and a strange atmosphere was taking over. Like the silence before the storm.

Merry Christmas, New York!

Is there any chance not to be amazed by New York? Especially during Chrismas Time? This hug city full of people, full of building, full of history. Every street corner tells a different story and looks familiar, probably because you…

Winter in Montreal

I just imagined Montreal and Canada in December really differently. It was my first time in Montreal, let alone Canada, and I expected snow. A lot of snow. Huge masses of snow. Instead I arrived during some unusual warm days in December and the last snow has just melt. No Canadian winter wonderland for me. What a shame, a bit of snow would have made the perfect background for my Christmas shopping in Montreal.
