Wrrrooooom!!! The art of travel @rrrudya posting from the #autobahn #Berlin-#Hamburg for the #Burndiary Plans changed and I spontaneously decided to go to the beautiful city of Hamburg for the weekend. And look how lucky I am – late-life-crisis-manhood-substitute-chick-pick-up automobile happened to drive 70 km/h just next to our modest #Mercedes. Jokes aside – I love #traveling. One of the most important things I’ve learned from my dad, who unfortunately passed away 8 years ago, but still is my biggest #influence and #inspiration – things come and go, but your experiences will stay with you forever. Even when we didn’t have much money, he still tried to show me the world, taking me with him to environment-protection-from-the influence-of-ionizing-radiation conferences around Europe ( yes, he was a #nuclear physicist and yes he worked in #Chernobyl, where we also lived back in 1986). He was also a passionate photographer and I bet he would be active on Instagram if he was still alive. We traveled a lot together, but one last trip we planned long ago I had to make on my own this March. 18 years ago he went to #GrandCanyon with his friend Gregg. They took a video camera and filmed their trip. There is a take of him climbing over a fence at the canyon. He stood there on the edge of the cliff, fearlessly facing the emptiness before him. Then he turned to the camera and said “Alina, one day we will come here together”. We never did. This year, I finally visited Gregg in #LasVegas. We took his #corvette and drove all the way to the #GrandCanyon. I climed over the fence and stood on that cliff for a while. Then we went to a local bar and raised our glasses to the memory of a great man – my father Constantine. #inmemoriam #family #travel #onlyingermany #whatisthiscar
