    • Herbst 2018: South Africa and Lesotho

    • Herbst 2018: Extended weekend in Luxembourg

      This year, I treated myself to a very special trip: a visit to Ecuador and the Galapagos islands.

    • February 2 to February 5: A weekend in London


      Almost exactly ten years after my previous visit, I spent another weekend in London. Unfortunately, the weather was mainly wet and cold. Still, that did not prevent me from enjoying the main reason of my stay: I had tickets for "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child" at the Palace Theatre.

      I spent the first week of April 2017 on a business trip in Venice: I attended the Connectathon 2017. As I extended my stay by a day, I also had the chance to see a bit of the city.

    • May 8 to May 31, 2010: "Best of the West"


      On our trip through the Western United States, we experienced pretty much every type of weather imaginable: from hail to rain to snow, from sunshine to strong winds (including a snow storm, and a sand storm). Despite these adverse conditions, however, it was a really great holiday.

      The name of the small group tour I booked did indeed live up to its promise: Patagonia XXL. I spent just under a month in South America, mostly in Patagonia. It really was an extraordinary holiday!

      In the years 2003 to 2006, I was travelling overseas a lot: a term abroad in New York (including a trip through California before the start of the term), a month in Australia, and trips to both Western and Eastern Canada. Additionally, I also spent almost 10 weeks on vacation and seminars in Europe in these years.
