Table Mountain Expedition
2 Min. Scientists called Venezuela’s Salto Angel waterfall the eighth wonder of the world. The dreamlike, yet mystical table mountains inspired James Cameron for his film Avatar. And I finally fulfilled my long-cherished No. 1 travel dream on my fourth attempt: a trip to what I consider the most spectacular landscape in the world.

‘Three survival tools for any business expedition’
3 Min. “BE CURIOUS, BE COURAGEOUS” – this new call from Deutsche Telekom to its employees is, of course, right up my street. The Magenta Voice Program invited me to Darmstadt to give a keynote at the opening of the ‘Tribe Days’.
Looking beyond the horizon
2 Min. Courage is good. No question about it. But I believe there is something even better than courage.
A piece of France in the Indian Ocean
2 Min. Fantastic hikes through deep valleys, long lava tunnels and high volcanoes – that is La Réunion. While roaming the island, I was amazed – also at the varied bird life, crooked trees, oddball volcanologists and the scent of what is probably the best vanilla in the world.
