A bee’s nest

This project sat we me since 2002! I had thought that the 7 Wonders campaign was going to be done in two years after its start with the new millennium. In 2002 I had the opportunity to present the 7 Symbols of Peace project to the then President of the IOC (International Olympic Committee) Jacques […]

Empty talks

The word Peace is much abused and used in many cases for empty talks (see middle-east conflicts), so let us get to work for Peace. In small steps, globally. Peace does not come from talks, but from action. With this campaign, we all unite to nominate and vote for our 7 Symbols of Peace.

Time and energy

21 September 2017, on World Peace Day together with my N7W team I finally launched and started the 7 Symbols of Peace campaign. I believe it is always a good idea to start in small steps. So let us start by creating and electing 7 symbols which best represent Peace! …and by doing so we […]

Munich

Almost four months have passed since my last Blog entry in March, when we concluded the New7Wonders World Tour in New York. Four months that brought me back to do “homework” on my computer and follow up with the world via Internet. This is very hard for me, because I am an “in-field” person. I […]

So did Living Liberty, Jennifer Stewart, […]

Chichen Itza and Mexico City, Mexico

The balloon crate had arrived on time in “Mayaland.” Our trip was direct from Lima to Merida and Chichen Itza via Mexico City. During the flight from Mexico City to Merida, I noticed with surprise how close nature is to this mega-city of Mexico, with two gigantic volcanoes poking out of the clouds as near […]

Machu Picchu, Peru

It is quite a trip from Lima, the capital of Peru to Machu Picchu. To start with, it is an hour’s flight up to the most beautiful, ancient city of Cusco – the capital of the ancient Incan empire. This is a sudden shift from practically 0 meters altitude, or sea level, by the Pacific […]

Easter Island, Chile

The flight from Santiago to Easter Island is almost as long as a Trans-Atlantic flight from Europe to North America. The comfort of LAN Chile was almost surreal! I had expected to fly with some old noisy prop machine over the blue of the Pacific, but no nostalgia – LAN Chile brought us there in […]

Santiago de Chile

On our second stop in Latin America, the media interest increased dramatically – about 15 TV crews and photographers were waiting and greeting us in the arrival hall of Santiago International airport … this must be how a victorious sports team feels when it arrives back home! After two hours of interviews and photos at […]
