Milan, Madrid, Vienna, Hamburg.
When are we going to visit cities like these again?
As of now, March 2020, it's hard to guess what the future of travel holds. I have some thoughts on it, both what I hope will happen – and what is likely to happen – but I'll do a little more research and come back to that in a later post.
I've lived a large portion of my life in San Francisco, Los Angeles (USA) and in Hamburg (Germany). I've also spent long periods in Spain and around Asia. Not only do I enjoy the adventure of travel, but I see it as an important key to better understanding the world – if you dare to venture outside the realms of mass tourism and all-you-can-eat-buffets, that is.
In the travel TV series Børsbyene, which I made with director Marius Troy for Dagens Næringsliv and Matkanalen (Norway's "Food Network"), I attempt to better understand the culture in Europe's major financial centers from the perspective of a curious, food- and drink loving Norwegian. What do I need to know when trying to make actual personal connections with people in different countries, cities and cultures?
So now, while we currently can't physically venture to Italy and Austria, let's travel digitally.
