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.
