Text and photography by David Wünschel. Selected texts also appear in the german travel blog Reisedepeschen.
The German name „Fernweh nach Welt“ is not easy to translate, but it’s something like wanderlust for world or longing for world. Most of the articles that you find here are in German, but occasionally there will be some English content.
What is this about?
About the best school of the world: travelling. Travellers expose themselves to new and unusual environments or situations. They meet tons of strangers. This is the start of a learning process. To travel is to get to know new perspectives, about the world and about oneself. And when returning, you see your home from a different point of view.
To travel educates culturally, emotionally and especially personally.
This blog is a platform for stories about travelling. These stories use photos and language to convey smells, sounds and feelings, to transport the reader to another place. And, hopefully, to leave him with a little spark of wanderlust.
Who writes here?
A few years ago, I quit my first studies, bought a backpack and a one-way-ticket to Kathmandu. Somewhere between the rice terraces of Nepal and the dust dry Negev desert in Israel, travelling became my passion.
Now, I’m studying again. Sometimes, I sit in the lecture hall or in my small room and my thoughts wander away from the studies. Then comes the wanderlust. Either I start writing about the past or I make plans for the future, for the next travel. And I’m definitely awaiting the next semester break.
