Virtual travel in the Corona-crisis, But we can still dream

We are at the Fjord and listen in the silence. The Wind pressed the icebergs in the Fjord, but hunter Tobias has done it with his Boot to get us through. We have to get out and drive in the fog by the mystic maze of ice.

In reality, we all sit at home in front of our computers. However, in thoughts, we are in Greenland’s wild East, and Ruth Zeller, follow narratives. Real travel are currently in the distance, but we can still dream.

And then the many are there photos: from the Luggage belt at the airport through the mosquito nets, the hikers views of the glacier.

“Switch off, see something else. And the travel experiences to life just let go”
