Who still needs a vacation then?

Who am I?

I am almost 70, I work as a coach for executives, I am a mother and a grandmother, and I have been living alone for most of my pretty fun life….

Why am I interested in tourism?

I have not travelled much due to time constraints, but I have lived and worked in other countries. I have always preferred travelling by myself and have always paid attention to ecology.


So today I went for a walk in my self-sufficient eco-village and into the dense forest nearby. There, I had a profoundly relaxing time – I took a long walk to a small lake where I had a quick swim.

Tonight, we will all go together to harvest the different things growing in the meadows and roads of the community. Tomorrow, I will cycle to work again. I have a 6-hour day and I share the management of the project with another woman.

At noon, the kids come to the office and have lunch with me in the canteen, where we cook organic food… Afterwards, they do their homework in the company’s common room. There is always someone there who can help them if they need it…

Hati hati and all the love!

Wishes and hopes behind the image of the future:

1. “For the future of tourism I hope that…

it becomes more individual and clean.

2. “If I could wish for anything at all, I would…

wish planes could be CO2-neutral.

3. “If I were a powerful politician, I would…

make 10 m on all coasts on seas and lakes accessible to everybody.
