Life is a journey not a destination, that is the motto of my blog. Now I witnessed a déjà-vu with this slogan. I did not only rediscover this dictum on the van of an adventurous driver but also on a mountainbike-tour through springlike Braunschweig’s surroundings. It does not matter whether it is about roasted canards, upright brick layers or a
I do not believe in accidents. There are only hints. Whether you notice and use them is up to you. I received one of those hints on June 5th, watching an interview on a TV show dealing with topics of culture. The guy being interviewed was Christian Marty a Swiss journalist and “ideas historian”. Being interviewed Marty delivers a pleading
A podcast I listened to recently was thought-provoking to me; the result is a research. It is about what friendship really means and what the different variants of it are.

This year started with a royal drumbeat: The Sussexes step back from their royal titles.

During an organized walk in the course of the exhibition: “October 15th – the destruction of Brunswick” we learn how desastrous the bombing of the city in October 1944 really was. We visit places that have been destroyed and get to know facts on the impact of the destruction on people and the city.

A bold venture for everybody, I guess. Not only Mr. Rossi (known from the animated cartoon series of the same name) tried to succeed in finding it, failed sometimes
Even winter time has its own magic, that much I know since yesterday. How winter trekking at the Grane barrier lake and hot spiced wine in the winter forest could change my own little world – read it now. We catch the best sunday weather in this year: it is cold, it is dry and it is supposed to snow!
The say: „Hope dies last“ and yet it happens. Just before Christmas, the stock-exchange gurus let all confidence die: “Almost everybody has given up hope for an end-of-year-rally still to come”, experts claim. You may wonder why this fact is still no reason to agonize. The answer is quite easy: In the international boardrooms they will again acclaim themselves with
At first it is just a red spot on the ground. We are standing in front of the former house of the Kolar family in the Butmir district. Now it is the museum “Tunnel of Hope”.
