Longing: city

Longing: City - a visual journey. The somewhat different travel guide.

With a competition at the end. You can find more information on this at the end of this post.

Do you also feel such a strong longing to travel? Just pack your suitcase and go? To discover something new, to go in new ways, to get out of the familiar environment? We have been doing the same since the beginning of the pandemic and right now! Probably everyone had already made travel plans for this year and then, as we all know, things turned out very differently.

A travel guide that invites you to dream

For this reason, Cécile Meier and Klara Dengler have teamed up and created a travel guide under the creative umbrella of @ ongoing projects written. For them, the following applies: In times when travel is difficult, they want the reader to travel visually through six European cities. The somewhat different travel guide impresses with its diverse experience reports, poetic texts, special tips, beautiful design and a sustainable overall concept. The perfect gift for a friend or just to browse yourself, Dream and make travel plans.

We asked Cécile, one of the two editors of the travel guide, our three questions.

What was or is your motivation behind the travel guide "Longing: City - A Visual Journey"?

During the never-ending pandemic, I got so addicted to travel that I started dreaming my way through old vacation trips — visually in the form of pictures and videos on my phone and, of course, through my memories. My friend Klara Dengler felt the same way, and as we indulged together, we came up with the idea of ​​creating our own travel guide. We wanted to share our experiences in different European cities with others, giving you the opportunity to travel visually. Because the pandemic has not taken away our desire to travel and, above all, not the opportunity to dream and plan new trips. With a sustainably produced and climate-neutrally printed travel guide, your own imagination can be stimulated and as soon as travel is possible again, you can discover the tips for museums, restaurants, shops, sights and accommodations presented in it.

Cécile is one of the two editors of the travel guide Sehnsucht: Stadt

What do you advise our readers: what can you do specifically for a better future?

Question yourself and the system, become really critical and be ready to break with old patterns. My motivation to continuously behave in a more environmentally friendly way comes from the fact that I am aware of my responsibility. The responsibility towards our planet, my fellow human beings and also the generations that will come after us. In my master's thesis, I dealt with futurology and noticed that thinking in different scenarios helps to imagine what our future might look like - positively as well as negatively. If you break down these scenarios, which are perhaps 20 or 50 years in the future, it becomes clear that we currently still have room for maneuver to change. And it is precisely this that is to be used.

The exchange with others helps immensely. Because of course climate change, with all its devastating consequences, can put you in a state of fear. Talking about it and developing ideas for a more sustainable future with others creates value and a purpose, which in turn serves as a drive.

How do travel and sustainability fit together for you?

Travel and Sustainability fit together perfectly for me. They even have a certain degree of dependency, because in my opinion, as an environmentally conscious person, you cannot do any “non-sustainable travel” without getting a guilty conscience. On the one hand, this of course means that traveling is no longer perceived as carefree, as a certain amount of planning and questions of conscience go hand in hand. On the other hand, it leads to creativity in finding new travel options, such as Accomodation and means of transport, which makes traveling a real adventure again.

Travel and sustainability can also create wonderful synergies. For example, if you combine a trip with a good cause and lend a hand at the holiday destination, Plastic collects and recycles or supports a social project, then travel is given a higher priority.
