NEW BLOG POST: Until recently I have never been to Essen although it is located only 100 kilometres from Cologne where I live. So I was very happy when I was invited to a travel blogger meeting in Essen where I had the opportunity to see a lot of the city. Essen is located in the Ruhr Area but the former industry location is nowadays a very green city and won the European Green Capital Award 2017. FIND OUT MORE HERE:

NEW BLOG POST: Most people travelling to Uzbekistan don't spend much time in Tashkent but head to the more popular places like Samarkand, Bukhara and Khiva pretty much right away. But the capital of Uzbekistan is also worth a visit. The Chorsu Bazaar, the Amir Timur Monument and the Hazrati Imam Square are only a few of the highlights of Tashkent which can be visited in 24 hours.

I absolutely love the Great Wall of China. For me it is one of the most fascinating, if not even the most fascinating monument on Earth. After wandering on the fully restored Mutianyu Great Wall in twice in 2013 I was happy when I got the chance to hike the isolated and unrestored wild Gubeikou Great Wall a while ago.
