When I started my road trip from Stuttgart to Leipzig on an old east german scooter (Schwalbe) two days ago, I had planned to make a video diary about the journey. First things first, it really isn't easy to hold a camera while throttling and shifting at the same time. Will have to figure this out... But, coincidentally, I had to pause the road trip yesterday in the beautiful town of Kronach and get a train back home to Leipzig. I'm now sitting in the train en route to Chemnitz where I'll be covering the current events for stern Magazine.

The Schwalbe is safely parked in a garage of some very nice people I barley know and certainly as thrilled as I'm on the prospect of a proper trip home to Leipzig within the coming weeks. Hopefully I'll have figured out how to film and drive at the same time by then...

Greetings and until soon!
