My Recent Travels
A wide-eyed wanderer
I have a little dream to travel to faraway places. A world where sturdy oaks lean over and guide me on wandering trails. Where ruined monuments take me back in time and where the mountains hide me in their solitude. A place of peace and calm. I want to stay a little longer, walk a little further in the wide emptiness that fills the soul.

My Footsteps on Earth
Earth is no heaven but there are pieces of it, scattered. On my journeys, I have been witness to extra-ordinary landscapes, sometimes lit by the rays of our dying sun, darkened under the flying shadows thrown by the clouds which sail across the sky. Each of the small pins on the map below is but a step towards finding these scattered pieces.

Memories from around the World
I am mostly an atheist. Religion does not control me. Still I visit many religions places. For me the engagement with these heritage sites that have remained unchanged for hundreds of years, makes me feel as if I am continuing a tradition passed down from past generations, connecting me with my ancestors and the past of humanity.
