What really characterizes a trip? Which sights can you save? Where is paradise waiting? What is an adventure? Where is it still authentic? And why does the beach always look better on Instagram than in real life?

Philipp Laage talks about how we travel today and why - smart, reflective, always with humor. Whether he plunges into the nightlife of Beirut, looking for the perfect place for love in Malawi , cursing the smartphone in South Tyrol or climbing onto an active volcano in the rebel area of ​​eastern Congo. A search for happiness on the road - or what could hide behind this word.
