Talks and Travel

 

Update: COVID obviously changed the travel plans. – However, we have been enjoying a number of very interesting and interactive online meetings instead. Hope to see you in that virtual world!

I am publishing my travel plans online here, so that we can meet in person in case I am around anyway! The main aim is to reduce the number of travel kilometers (and CO2 expenses), while keeping the number of contacts up!

As you can see, I regularly try to combine travel to various destinations in a region. Thereby, I travel less kilometers, but make the same numbers of visits. After all, this combined travel saves not only CO2, but also time and money.

Wherever I travel, I try to go by train. Here is a small excerpt with ideas that make traveling by train a pleasure [1]. This helps the commitment to fly less [2]. In brief, the principles are: 1. travel less, stay longer, and 2. when going by train, plan in sufficient time when changing trains, maybe even sufficient for a decent lunch in Paris, Basel or London? This makes travel easy.
