Shanghai, Baby! – First time in China

Aber es gab eine Sache, auf die mich kein interkulturelles Kommunikationsseminar vorbereiten konnte. Denn live und in Farbe ist es eben gewöhnungsbedürftig, wenn einem ein…

Speed Sightseeing in Zagreb

Unfortunately, the days of endless layovers at European cities are long gone. Our stays get shorter and the working days longer. But I still try to get to know the cities I sleep in – and if I have to decide between eating, sleeping or sightseeing, I still choose the latter!
