Me, my colleague and his wife went on a two-day trip in May 2019 to see some impressive leftovers from the battle of Verdun in France. He knows for sure almost everything about war so it was a very interesting thing to experience.

1 week in Lesbos, Greece – September 2013

A good friend of mine asked me once: “Why don’t you join me to the beautiful island of Lesbos in Greece?” I heard him talking about that island for a while now and I thought yeah why not… It was pretty much worth it, perfect weather, beautiful place and lots of sweet sunsets.
