Today is not only the first day of the rest of our lives, but also the last day for many representantives of nature and culture. Exactly 30 years after its publication I read Douglas Adams’ book Last chance to see and I was touched by the beautiful and funny storytelling… but I was also deeply shocked. The idea was initiated by a radio show. The author travels around the globe together with Mark Carwadine, a British zoologist, to find animals that are nearly extinguished and to see them probably for the last time. I decided to quit my job, to cancel my apartment, to say goodbye to my friends and family and to go out to this world and to take a closer look at it.

Unfortunately, the pandemic of Covid-19 broke my plans of one big world trip, but my travels continue. I will be taking ships, backpacking, hitchhiking and driving. On my way we will collect the Dust of the World. It is my Last chance to see, share my observations of nature and culture with you, before these animals, plants or traditions might be lost tomorrow. Even more, I try to make my contribution to projects, that help to preserve nature, culture and people in need.
