When I was a kid, our family holidays had mostly one destination: the mountains. I still remember the way the horizon kept opening up while on the trails, and how there always was another valley and mountain beyond. Also, there were books in my room, since as long as I can remember. And there was this TV-docu series, playing once a week: "Menschen, Länder, Abenteuer" - "People, Countries, Adventures". Seen like that, it probably is no surprise that one day, I had to go myself, to the lands far beyond those mountains. And find my own stories there.
2 friends, 2 journeys, and 10 life lessons - a true story
An engaging travelogue in the form of emails between 2 strangers who turn to virtual friends: From the Great Wall to Shanghai, from Munich to the Mediterranean Sea, and from curious questions ("How does one type on a Chinese keyboard?") to shared life lessons that wait along the road, WOR(L)DS APART is both an inspiring travel read, and the story of a friendship across cultures and borders.
