HELLO SASKIA, THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR WANTING TO BE PART OF OUR NEVER ENDING JOURNEY ON LESS.TALK.TRAVEL.MORE. (www.lesstalktravelmore.com)
1. TELL ME A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOURSELF. HOW OLD ARE YOU? WHERE ARE YOU FROM? WHAT IS YOUR JOB AND WHY IS TRAVELLING SO IMPORTANT TO YOU?
I am a designer, with my own label, based in Munich, mainly doing jewellery. Being on my way creates a freedom in my mind, no matter where I am heading, if it´s a long journey or just a short trip or even just walking around the block.
2. HOW OFTEN DO YOU TRAVEL PER YEAR?
1 - 3 times per month. That´s mostly because of my profession. Pure vacation more or less once a year, for about 3 weeks.
3. WHAT WAS YOUR FUNNIEST EXPERIENCE ON A JOURNEY?
I went to NYC in May 2013. Somehow I forgot to pack any underwear. I had a couple of desk top meetings with magazines. One day I put a very nice thin silk dress, because I had a meeting at Vogue in the afternoon. It was hot outside, so I did not take any jacket with me. Suddenly heavy rain started to fall, the underground did not work anymore, I couldn´t get any taxi, so I arrived like out of a shower there. Wearing that soaking wet silk dress with nothing underneath I could have been just naked. I tried to stay cool, presented my work and when I got up to leave again, I left a big dark wet mark on the purple velvet sofa where I was sitting.
4. HOW DO YOU DECIDE ON YOUR NEXT TRIP AND WHAT IS RELEVANT FOR YOU?
The thought of going there should feel good.
5. WHAT IS IMPORTANT FOR YOU ON A VACATION (RECREATION; EXPERIENCE; RELAXATION; ADVENTURE; FUN)?
If it´s vacation, I am looking for recreation, peace of mind.
6. WHICH TYPE REPRESENTS YOU BEST?
RELAXATION OR MOTION -
COURAGE OR ANXIETY -
ADVENTURE OR BORING STANDART -
CHEAP OR EXPENSIVE -
COLOR OR NO COLOR -
A mix of all of it.
7. DO YOU LIKE TO GO ON VACATION IN THE SPRING, SUMMER, FALL OR WINTER .... AND WHY?
Late summer. Because Munich itself is nice in the summer, when you can go swimming in the river. Especially August is nice, when the tar heats up and most people are gone for vacation. When the heat slows down the city.
8. WHICH MOMENT OF THE DAY DO YOU LIKE THE MOST?
Being on a trip I like the early morning a lot. That time a place seems to be yours. As well the night with its different sounds.
9. ARE YOU MORE THE DISCOVERER OR DO YOU STICK TO YOUR ROUTINE WHEN DECIDING ON A TRIP?
I like to discover new things. I like as well being taken around or shown favourite places. And I love to establish some routine, it gives me a feeling of belonging to where I am.
10. WHERE WOULD YOU LIKE TO GO ON VACATION NEXT?
Porto. Dear friends of mine moved there and opened up a Deli.
