I always do loose something. Like caps. On this day, above all, my mind. In a place that spoke to me without saying a word. I'm telling you about the noisy silence of the Bighorn Canyon, about soulmates, infinity and moments that silently change your life.
For 22 hours I'm on the way from Düsseldorf (Germany) to Billings (USA) with three different planes. Plus all the time it takes to get to and from the damn airport. Let's just say 30 hours in total. But why am I doing this? And where the hell is Billings?
Here comes my ticker of madness - enjoy!
Here comes part three of my Southern Europe Tour 2018: Two weeks from Northern Italy down to the South. From Cinque Terre via Pisa and Florence, through Tuscany to Naples. Then to Herculaneum, Vesuvius, the Amalfi coast and Capri. By train, car, ferry and on foot. Let the adventure begin!
For three long weeks I explored Spain's hot South by car - together with my best friend (whom I know since elementary school). From the cool coast to Ronda, from a crazy hike over Caminito del Rey to Sierra Nevada and Tabernas Desert, from Córdoba to Seville. Follow our exciting road trip into deep gorges and on top of the highest mountains!
In 2017 I fulfilled my life's dream and travelled solo across the US for four months. From New York to Chicago, down the entire Route 66, through several national parks. Los Angeles, San Francisco and finally across the wild North back to the East Coast. I laughed, danced, cried and saw the craziest and most beautiful things. Here comes my little diary.
Indigo and her dog Zelda are living full time in a truck they converted into a camper. “Altogether we’ve been living this lifestyle for a couple of years now, and I stand firm in the belief that it’s the best decision that I’ve ever made.” She did not need to say it out loud. Seeing her sparkling eyes would have been enough. But it was a long and hard way to go.
Colorful wind chimes are jingling gently in the wind. The sky is stretching across horizon like a blue canvas and rough rocks are dragging jagged shadows into the chapped asphalt. The Turquoise Trail in New Mexico cuts into the enchanting landscape of red rocks and sandy shrub-steppe on a length of round about 65 miles.
If there was a fire burning in my house now, all I would have to do was take my notebook, my camera, and a box full of personal letters
and souvenirs - and I would have saved 90 percent of all things that matter to me.
This is an anthem to Nothing. And how “Nothing” allows me to do everything I always wanted to do.
