as I’ve heard some introductory words should be inevitable for a website, and so I will try to explain the sense and nonsense of this 6739th travel blog a little bit.
Admittedly, this page is indeed only one of umpteen as many worldwide travel blog pages, of which there are quite a few very good and worth reading, which I can with great certainty but not nearly hold a candle to. On the one hand because the big world trip is still pending and on the other hand because I am not able to report my experiences in such a secure, captivating but also a little less serious way, as some others seem to have mastered effortlessly. So this page is mainly dedicated to my daughter and a small community of friends and acquaintances, to whom I will be able to report about my travels and show some hopefully successful pictures.
The interested reader will not learn anything essential about my personal data, although this is counterproductive for the generation of a public interest. Nevertheless, unlike many other globetrotters, I don’t think I have to tell everyone immediately where my permanent residence is or which toothpaste I prefer. Google and facebook already know all these things, and if you really want to contact me urgently, you may try it via facebook.com/offsblog. Even though the names of two global corporations and advertising media have already been mentioned, apart from my employer I have neither a sponsor nor any advertising contracts that would finance my travels in whole or in part. But that also gives me the advantage to be allowed to blaspheme politically completely incorrectly about one or the other company. For the Sponsoring by my employer I must furnish likewise still another return service, the whole calls itself then salary purchase for socage. Essentially, this sponsorship refers to the fact that my employer enables me to take my annual leave in a contiguous manner and thus to be allowed to stay away from my work for a few weeks.
But now some personal information: the most interests about travelling is not to tear off as many kilometres or miles as possible in a short time, rather the opposite is the case. I have often been annoyed about not being able to stay long enough in beautiful or interesting places due to lack of time or impatience. I try to counteract this more often and sometimes successfully. The basis for this more intensive travel is a not at all everyday motorhome (ExMo), which also enables me to be self-sufficient for a longer time and to travel on impassable roads. Landscapes are explored on foot or by canoe and with light luggage, preferably on day trips, but 2-3 day trips would be quite within the scope of the conceivable (depending on the condition, 🙂 ).
I also like to avoid bigger tourist hot spots in the high season, because I don’t really have anything in common with most of these tourists. Most of the time they are just noisy, disrespectful towards the country and its inhabitants they are visiting at the moment and sometimes leave a pile of garbage thoughtless. In some fortunately few extreme cases the visited destinations are damaged or even destroyed. In short simply crowded. Since I can’t always practice this travel behaviour at certain times and in particularly charming natural sites, I inevitably become part of mass tourism and am happy when I am allowed to travel in more lonely areas again. Of course it is clear to me that this loneliness with growing popularity of the motor home tourism and increasing world population will become ever rarer, and therefore no requirement on exclusivity can exist. But what is already perfect in life ….
Finally, I would like to mention that due to my four-finger system when typing and the resulting fact to think sometimes faster than to write now and then some words leave out or also with pleasure some letter turners install 🙂 🙂 you may forgive me or correct this independently mentally. Over time, the faster thinking will surely subside by itself.
