Gitti Müller

My first attack of wanderlust, in 1980, took me on a year-long backpacking trip to South America. Back then rucksacks like that weighed a lot, and the journey was exhausting. Since then I just can’t stop – today I always have my laptop and DSLR in my bag. As a television journalist and anthropologist, I get around quite a bit, but I always feel at home in Latin America.

The Travel Episodes

In The Travel Episodes, boundaries are blended: in inspiring travel reports, selected authors recount their adventures with text, film and photography. The focus is on the story, with no distracting elements. By scrolling, the readers are able to control the pace of the story themselves.

The episodes appear in German and English. Following the Grimme Award-winning „Reisedepesche“ and the leading platform for travel blogs, „Reisedepeschen„, with The Travel Episodes, Johannes Klaus establishes a new form of telling travel stories – with all the prospects that the internet has to offer.
