Ever since moving to the island, my travel times within Germany have vastly expanded. Living close to the Danish border, even a simple trip to Hamburg will take about four hours. Four hours with no wi-fi, bad cellphone coverage and little distractions in a beautiful, but flat and repetitive landscape: The perfect place to get some work done.
Some day, I’d like to get my own railcar, just like the millionaires featured in this piece. Austin Kleon is right with his assessment: “Most of the time I think money is wasted on dumb rich people, but at least this is interesting.” Certainly more interesting than buying yet another mansion!
