Where in the world have I been so far

This is more a reference or list for me to keep track, which countries and places I have visited so far and at least the beginning has no particular order. New places will be added at the end

Reached the bonus level or why I don’t mind dying

This article is more a reminder for me and something I can send a friend to understand my reasoning, if I ever speak about this topic. In addition I hope this might help someone or at least challenges you to think about this topic. I actually don’t want to die and I want to experience […]
