What is it about?

Open the eyes, see the world, see it differently.
It's about traveling and experiencing nature,
the broadening of horizons and hearts.

Nice to have you stop by!
I am Mareike. Traveler with permanent wanderlust, discoverer of big and small treasures of our world, nature lover, outdoor enthusiast and passionate photographer. Welcome to my travel blog!

What draws me to a certain place? Mostly it's nature, water and for some time now more and more the high mountains. Sometimes it's also lost places, street art or architecture from the Soviet era. Mostly, though, it's wildlife and the prospect of unforgettable encounters.

Fernweh-Motive reflects my interests and passions. Most articles are reports about my travels with many practical tips to help you with your own discoveries and travel plans. Each article is carefully researched and accompanied by my photos and, in the future, an occasional video.

My last trip was in July/August to Iceland and Greenland.
Check back soon for the new articles, including our hiking trips on Laugavegur, Tasermiut Fjord and our kayak trip from Narsaq to the Inland Ice.
