The Germans like to travel to Italy, where the climate and landscape, culture and history, food and the sea all try to outdo each other. If you're traveling by car, you do not need to get that far to Rome or even Calabria to enjoy all this. A beautiful, versatile, but unfortunately somewhat underrated region is already in the extreme northeast: the provinces of Veneto and Friuli-Venezia Giulia. So, let us embark on a wondrous drive through the north east of Italy, where we will be surprised by the beautiful things in life.
The small Greek island Leros has gone through a lot in the world wars. This makes the island near the Turkish border particularly exciting for divers - the waters are full of airplane and ship wrecks. Timo Dersch undertook an underwater journey through time.
The Balearic Islands are small and manageable. In addition, rich and relatively independent of the mainland. Ideal conditions to change something. Now the islands have taken a course on sustainability and ecology. I love both: eco and the Balearic Islands. So look no further than what's going on there in terms of the environment.

The third leg of the Albania tour takes me to the "City of the Thousand Windows" and the "City of Stones". Two cities shaped by the Ottoman cityscapes, which can not be more different.
For weeks, I am looking forward to the Albanian mountains. Kruja and Tirana make a first impression. But it works better. With the car, it goes into the Albanian Alps: Valbona and Theth ... still unknown? Soon no longer…
Where are you driving to? Albania? Is it possible to travel there normally? I start my round trip through Albania: two weeks through the country with the rental car.
Tirana: How do I encounter the city, whose stones are inscribed 46 years of socialist history, the capital of a country that has been almost half a century separated from the world? Gray concrete buildings, wide streets, laid out for flag-waving infantry, plus some grim monuments, such as the picture that formed in my mind's eye at the word "Tirana".
"Crazy-Yoga" is a discipline from the creative box for alternative offers. When the glaciers melt and the snow stops, the villages around the ski resorts have to come up with something. And why should the craziest yoga ideas stay where they are born, namely in the US?
