The route

Thanks to the Star Alliance Miles & More program (and, very substantially, my former employer) I was able book an around the world ticket. My first destination is the surf of the Pacific coast of Costa Rica. After that, I’ll fly out to San Francisco to start my exploration of the Rocky Mountains by skis from Californian Lake Tahoe through British Columbia all the way to the Chugach Mountain Range in Alaska before taking off for Hawaii (you guess the main activity there).I will take a contemplative break in a Japanese Zen monastery in Kioto before entering the Indonesian surfing universe via Singapore. Nostalgia (or lack of a better idea) will see me stop in Mauritius, before hopping over to South Africa for my last stop.

Leaving Vienna

I’ve been here for 46 somewhat chaotic days now. It took me a while to realize that Vienna, too, was a destination for me, and not anymore – or yet – the ‘home’ as which I liked to remember it. Nevertheless, the time to leave again has come. Daniel is already surfing his first waves in Nosara while I am writing this, and Burkhard will follow soon. Me, I’ll let my family in Tirol and Trentino have a final look at myself before I’ll board a United Airlines flight from Munich to Houston on route to San Jose on December 3.


Preparations are pretty advanced. So I hope.
