“To travel is to discover that everyone is wrong about other countries.”
We strongly believe that especially in these times of increasing nationalism it is important to get to know foreign places, people and their cultures. This helps to break down prejudices, create understanding for others and create the conditions for global cooperation. Only on such a basis it is possible to solve the big global challenges like climate change, exploitation of nature, wars, streams of refugees, etc. together.
Getting to know new places and people is of course above all a great pleasure. (Sure, now restricted by Corona – but we’ll survive that too.) It broadens our horizons. It makes us wonder about fantastic places and sights. We get to know different people from different cultures. In the process, we discover how much connects us: Laughing and crying, dancing and celebrating, eating and drinking, shopping and discovering. Or simply hanging around together in a relaxed atmosphere. Ideally, long relationships and friendships are the result.
