China Travel Stories


Curios. Optimistic. Determined.

“A ship in the harbour is safe, but that is not what ships are built for.”

Author and Speaker

From the road.

I share my experiences that travel has taught me, the insights that I learned from all different kinds of people and my philosphy of life practicing minimalism, compassion and mindfulness.

The People behind the Chinese Dream.

5800 kilometers from the border of Russia down to Vietnam on a foldable bicycle searching for meaning behind the concept of the often stated ‘Chinese Dream’. A Laowai’s (foreigners) view on modern day China.

Hitchhiking to the Tibetan area.

Tramping a distance of over 6000 kilometers from the developed coastal area of China to the Tibetan areas of Western Sichuan and Qinghai. An intracultural observation between bullet trains and buddhism.
