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. This blog is a platform for stories about travelling.
