European Perspectives

European Perspectives

The Other Side Of The Table ·  March 17, 2018 -

Europe, where are you going?  …business as usual?

These are strange and worrying times.

As international travellers for many decades we have crossed numerous borders, visited a huge number of countries around the world, met many open-minded people of all colours and creeds, experienced a variety of cultures and enjoyed the privilege of living in a peaceful community - but now we are concerned.

We have seen borders open up, walls come down, introduction of a common currency, the disappearance of bureaucracy, carnets and other logistical travel hurdles and the growth of the global village.

Ignoring what is happening in the US for a moment, it is hard to believe that the shutters are coming down again and Europe is taking a major leap backwards.

Let us hope that this potential Dystopia does not turn into reality and that soon we do not have to start again from scratch.

I recently discovered an old interview titled “Europäische Perspektiven” written by Fritz Fey of way back in 1989.
It feels good to appreciate these perspectives in our little 'audio-universe' and I personally, am happy to have had an international team of talent on-board now for many years.
