Back to China

“Not all those who wander are lost.” J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

I am definitely not lost, but I have a burning desire to wander. I love to explore other countries and cultures, mingle with the locals and support local businesses. I also love to meet people from all over the world. I have just been to China in April and May and I am captivated by the beauty of the country and the friendlyness of the locals. On my journey I met some fantastic people along the way. Read more

A new Design – Update

A few days ago I announced that I will test and introduce four WordPress Themes – Photography, Portfolio, Profile and Photographer – on my blog in the next one and a half weeks.

A new Design – your Opinion

Two days from now my blog on WordPress will reach its first anniversary. I had a blog before on Blogspot but I didn’t really like Blogspot due to its limited Design- and Layout-options and, compared to WordPress, the worse user-friendliness, so I didn’t do much on my blog. When starting this blog I choosed the free Bueno Theme which, I think, is a great Theme for those, who just start blogging on WordPress. But after a few months I felt that I wanted a Theme which is still for free but represents my photos better and gives me a few more blog options than Bueno. I choosed Forever, which is originally designed as a Wedding Theme but offers a photo slider which was very appealing to me. Read more
