“We travel, initially, to lose ourselves; and we travel, next, to find ourselves. We travel to open our hearts and eyes and learn more about the world than newspapers will accomodate. We travel to bring what little we can, in our ignorance and knowledge, to those parts of the globe whose riches are differently dispersed. And we travel, in essence, to become young fools again – to slow time down and get taken in, and fall in love once more.”
–Rolf Potts, author of Vagabonding
The Index of Censorship Magazine is published fourth times a year.
For the index on censorship magazine, I recently wrote an article on the future of journalism. Despite newsrooms closing down and the advertising market being at a low, I gave a positive outlook as I do believe it is an exciting time to be a journalist these days.
Sustain Your Future is a project I have been working on during the last couple of weeks. The idea is to create little video interviews with start-ups, NGOs, organizations and companies which are all connected to the field of sustainability. The first video is not superb, I definitely still need to work on the audio quality and some other details, but it’s fun and I hope it will generate a few more followers soon.
Neighbours who for years didn’t know each other, even though they lived next door, get to know the people in their vicinity, greet each other on the street – and help each other out. According to the Italian press, it is “a little miracle ” that is taking place in Bologna and in about 60 other Italian cities.

DiscoverCity is a project I have been involved in for almost two years now. It all started in 2012, when I and a group of international students won the first place at the National City Branding Competition of the Youth Goodwill Ambassador programme for a city guide on Aarhus. Juraj Pal, a Slovakian Business student, took the idea then one step further. Collected some strong partnerships in Aarhus and here we are today! On April 30th, our initial idea was launched during the Internet Week Denmark.
Read all about it in our following press release.
This past summer I travelled to the beautiful island of Sri Lanka, as did my dad – over 30 years ago. I embarked on a journey looking for the trails of my father, and found his long-lost friend Siri.
