My Year in Cities, 2008
Post from December 31, 2008 (↻ August 16, 2013), reflecting Jens the Adventurer.
As per Anne, in no chronological order and intentionally incomplete, here are some cities I visited in 2008. I couldn’t resist.
- Aarau, Switzerland
- Basel, Switzerland
- Bern, Switzerland
- Bremen, Germany (obviously)
- Coburg, Germany
- Copenhagen, Denmark
- Flensburg, Germany
- Freiburg im Breisgau, Germany
- Hamburg, Germany
- Jerusalem, Israel
- Laax, Switzerland
- Las Vegas, United States
- Lisbon, Portugal
- London, England
- Los Angeles, United States
- Lyon, France
- Malmö, Sweden
- Mountain View, United States
- Mulhouse, France
- Munich, Germany
- Osnabrück, Germany
- Palo Alto, United States
- Rotenburg/Wümme, Germany
- San Bruno, United States
- San Diego, United States

- Santa Barbara, United States
- St. Gallen, Switzerland
- Tel Aviv, Israel
- Tijuana, Mexico
- Vaduz, Liechtenstein

- Zurich, Switzerland (obviously)
The stories behind these cities vary (more so on my Travel Map on Facebook, I guess), from just stopping to explore a city to staying for a couple of nights to actually living there, and include both repeated and first time visits. However, the 11 countries my trips involved contributed to an exciting and overall very successful 2008 for which I’m quite grateful.
Guys, Happy New Year, see you in 2009.

I think there is a problem. I don’t see Paris in your list. A mistake ? Or another city to visit ?
I hope 2009 will be as good as your 2008 ! Happy new year Jens !
Nicolas, I didn’t make Paris this year but that’s definitely, finally something for 2009—and I’ll ping you first thing I’m about to book the trip Happy New Year!
Hey men, you should visit Tokyo someday and add couple of major cities in Japan to your great list
Happy new year from another side of Earth (2009 already). Enjoy your last 6 hours of 2008!!
I wish we have a great 2009. Thank you for working together. It was great to work with you. Later!
Masa-san, nice to see you here You’re of course right, Tokyo must be one of the priorities for 2009 (and I’d just love to go rather sooner than later)
Happy New Year…!
wow, that’s a hell of a list - I’ve been to New York this summer, that’s it.

I’ve been to all these cities twice and the capital of Elbonia.
Michael, I’m jealous and would like to trade (Seriously—I haven’t been to NYC yet.)
Topper (Steffen), brilliant

you are missing out on all the fun US East Coast has to offer. Although I can how the spice for what you do really thrives in the cities you traveled to this past year. I am looking to fly into Berlin within the next few months if business doesn’t get in the way (last in Germany about a year ago) jedem guten Beer oder Vereine(clubs?), die Sie empfehlen sollte ich besuchen?
