Around the World in 12 Days – Home again

Rainbow Flight
Rainbow Flight | Munich | 2017

10 Flights. 19300 miles (31000 km) distance flown. 44 hours of flight time. Nuremberg-Frankfurt-Vancouver-Portland-Vancouver-Taipei-Shanghai-Seoul-Tokyo-Munich-Nuremberg. Amazingly, non of the flights where in any way delayed. After 12 days of traveling westbound around the world I’m safe and sound back home on the Streets of Nuremberg.

It was a very intense but productive business trip, and it included some opportunities to see something outside airports, taxis, hotels, and meeting rooms, and I’m very grateful for that. The best thing was meeting all those great people in Taiwan, China, Korea and Japan. But also revisiting Shanghai‘s amazing citycenter and being able to explore Tokyo for the first time was a treat.

A somehow perfect ending to this special voyage was the last short flight from Munich to Nuremberg, when a rainbow graced the sky above the plane when we boarded and that pointed exactly into the northerly direction towards home.

And the special light that flooded the ground near the village we live in during final approach to Nuremberg airport. I love to travel and explore the world. But it’s always good to return home.

Have a great week!

  1. I have really enjoyed joining in with your sightseeing around the world, although admittedly in bits and pieces. Some fantastic photos and interesting commentary. Look forward to catching up with your next posts.

    1. Thanks for reading and taking the time to comment, Tamsin, much appreciated. Fingers crossed that you get to do a trip like this in the future! But it seems you already have been bitten by the travel bug 😀👍! Marcus

  2. I made in 1970 (nearly) round the world trip. Our route was Helsinki-New York-Los Angeles-Honolulu-Tokyo-Anchorage-Copenhagen-Helsinki. Thank you for this interesting post.


  3. Wow! Was ne Route, bin beeindruckt… Ich hab mich total reingefühlt und bis zu dem Punkt “business trip” auch richtig neidisch!! Aber wer weiß, vielleicht gehörst Du ja zu den Menschen, die ihren Job gerne machen, dann ist alles wunderbar 😉 Die Bilder sind es sowieso 😉

    1. Danke 🙂 Ja, ich mache meinen Job gerne. Die Schattenseite ist halt immer die viele Abwesenheit von zuhause. Momentan ist es halt extreme. Aber es kommen auch wieder bessere Zeiten 😉

    1. Thanks for commenting, Amy! It was a very special trip, but yes, I was glad to be back home, if only for two weeks before heading back top the PNW. Have a good week! Marcus

  4. My sentiments exactly Marcus – I love to travel but home is where the heart is and I’m very content there too! A great series, thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to post. M.
