VILLA TUGENDHAT

Villa Tugendhat in  in Brno, Czech Republic, is an impressive modernist house from 1930. It is one of the significant early works by Ludwig Mies Van Der Rohe, and remains strikingly modern and innovative even until these days, almost a century after its completion.

#VANLIFE

This year, 2020, I canceled all previous travel plans, and made a roadtrip in an old (but fit), VW T3 1987 WESTFALIA CAMPERVAN. Together we had a great time going through both famous and less famous places in Norway, wildcamping on the seaside, in the middle of forests and on mountaintops. 


STOCKED

The Lofoten Islands in Northern Norway are known worldwide for their natural scenery. They might, however, be slightly lesser known for the tradition of drying fish on wooden racks, commonly known as stockfish. This is an old tradition with roots hundreds of years back in time. The fish is hung on the wooden racks(hjell) and dried during the winter season, from around February to May. Stable cool weather protects the fish from insects and bacterial growth, and the climate in northern Norway is well fit for this old technique. I visited the Islands this winter, and was struck by the presence of the heavy stocked fish racks present almost all around the shores, which are empty during the busier summer months.


DETOUR

In July 2018 I made a  journey through Kyrgyzstan and the southern parts of Kazakhstan, driving a retro Lada Niva 4x4.  These are saturated memories from a trip to a colourful part of the world, which remains quite unvisited, and very unspoilt.
