What Johannes says about...

… his passion

Building the future of the travel industry.

… what he has learned on his travels:

Travel is a force of good in the world. It is a powerful tool for cultivating meaningful human connections and fostering a deeper appreciation of our surroundings.

… his sources of inspiration for personal growth:

Long-distance running is my form of meditation. It helps me achieve clarity in my thinking.

As a founder, I can relentlessly pursue a mission for a very long time. It gives me the opportunity to strive for something greater than myself and make an enduring contribution with a lasting impact on our world.
