Inka Parei in New Zealand

One of my favourite German writers, Inka Parei, is travelling around New Zealand in a campervan. You can read about her adventures and observations on her very first blog - in German, English and Te Reo Maori.

What I find fascinating about it is that otherwise, Inka writes about Germany, weaving contemporary history into her stories and going into great depth and detail. She writes slowly and carefully, revising over and over again. And now I can see almost the bare bones of her writing, for two reasons: firstly because she's observing the unfamiliar in a different continent, and secondly because writing for a blog demands a different kind of speed. Do take a look.
