A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

When writing the tour diary, I always wonder how I should begin, what may be of interest for you, reader. Narrating the story of an MCO tour, the ordinary and the extraordinary of the days we spend together on the road, seems such a challenge with words. How to reconstruct the flow, the feelings I experience as we whiz from city to city? How to remember and sort out the memories? Small and seemingly insignificant details often don't even surface in our consciousness, and yet they participate in the lasting impressions we take home with us.

Looking back, it amazes me how photographs preserve the little things, long after we have forgotten. 

They say “a picture is worth a thousand words”, and this is for me the most natural way to tell my story of this tour.

These images are frozen moments of our days in Dortmund, Vicenza, Verona, Napoli, but also Venezia, where we enjoyed a few hours amongst friends at the end of our travel day from Dortmund to Vicenza.
