If you are in #Kochi / #Cochin, #Trivandrum / #Thiruvananthapuram and around I'd be grateful to hear whether places listed in the https://www.organictraveller.de/organictraveller-kerala articles are still operating (in the described way).
I'm also keen to hear about newer places offering #organic #fairly traded/produced #food and goods!
Finally I finished my travelwriting on this summer's #MuenchenVenezia #biketour: https://www.organictraveller.de/ecotraveller-munich-venice-by-bike
It's based on my posts here, but more elaborate, with links and all: notes on the #bikeroute, the people we met, the accommodation, the food. Enjoy!
During #bitsundbaeume22 I realised I need a 2nd account for all the stuff I care about apart from #organic food, #trains, #bicycles and #sustainableTourism: So here comes @trish for the #activist part of me. #neuhier
I'll unfollow some of you from this account and move you over to @trish, to keep things tidier.
@jon what baffles me is that one new Nightjet, at just 7 single-decker cars, has capacity comparable to a typical narrow-body airplane.
And just 33 of them, that's 5% of total Ryanair capacity; at 1/10th the airplane efficiency (average speed) they'd only be able to serve 0.5% of demand Ryanair serves.
In order to serve as many passenger-kilometers as Ryanair alone, they'd need to have over a thousand 20-car double-decker trains.
Well, some people think Teslas are sustainable urban transport...

The serious planning for #CrossBorderRail South East Europe has to start with *what rail borders* do I want to investigate
These are all now as pins in the map
The emphasis: ALL the places where lines exist between non-EU countries in SE Europe, external borders of the EU, and a couple of Croatian borders I am missing
Dark blue: must visit
Light blue: either have visited before and don't need re-checking, or are insignificant but could be added
Je découvre une magnifique critique de mon premier livre et j'ai encore plus envie qu'il paraisse dans d'autres langues.
Car contrairement aux éditeurs de langues étrangères qui l'ont refusé, je ne crois pas que l'auto-dépendance soit un "phénomène allemand".
Paris mayor quits X, calling the social media platform a 'vast global sewer'.
Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo said on Monday she was quitting Elon Musk's social media platform X, formerly known as Twitter, which she described as a "global sewer" and a tool to disrupt democracy.
@organictraveller My advice: Next time don't miss Mahlzahn; my #Heidelberg organic bakery of choice since basically forever: https://www.mahlzahn.de/. If you have a bit more time, you could also visit the food coop Appel un'Ei in Neuenheimer Feld, https://appelunei.stura.uni-heidelberg.de/ and nearby the bicycle self-help workshop URRmEL http://urrmel.de.
With my last visit in #Heidelberg five years ago, there's a lot to update on the #organictraveller 's #travelguide. Unfortunately my recent stay was very brief, but here's at least an updated #sustainable #shoppingguide covering small owner-run shops offering durable and socially responsible goods, often #organic and/or #fairtrade : https://www.organictraveller.de/organictraveller-heidelberg-shopping
Whether you're interested in (not only #marine) #science and #technology, #history or #climate, the city of #Bremerhaven with many #museums drawing on its past and present as a #port is a worthwhile #tourist destination even on bad weather days and during the cold season. Here's where to #eat and #stay if you care about #organic food: https://www.organictraveller.de/organictraveller-bremerhaven
#Bowls, #overnightOats, #granola, #bananabread and #brownies - the menus of #cleanEating inspired #restaurants often resemble one another. However boring this may seem (who wants to eat this every day?) - they are usually a good starting point if you are on the outlook for an #organic #lunch or #breakfast in an unknown city: https://www.organictraveller.de/organictraveller-munich-eateries has updates and new entries for #Munich / #Germany.
If you have a #bicycle in #Hyderabad, here's a new must-have-seen, uhm, must-have-cycled: a 21 km long #bikelane - shadowed by a #solar roof (likely to power the surveillance cameras): https://www.newindianexpress.com/states/telangana/2023/oct/01/hyderabads-solar-roofed-bicycle-track-to-be-thrown-open-today-2619840.html
All of #Munich stands drunk on the #Oktoberfest #beerfest tables these days? No, as today, #Friday, 29th Sep, is #CriticalMass day! #Bicyclelovers meet up for a leisurely #bikeride in front of the #BayrischeStaatsoper between 6pm and 6:30pm. Let's see whether there will be the traditional break at the #Bavaria monument (w/ a view over the #Wiesn) around 8pm, to welcome latecomers.
European governments have “systematically” shrunk their railways & starved them of funding while pouring money into expanding their road network, a report has found. Length of motorways in Europe 🌍 grew 60% between 1995 & 2020 while railways shrank 6.5% https://www.theguardian.com/world/2023/sep/19/european-governments-railways-road-building-report-motorways-funding-rail
During the pandemics I did not find any #organic #restaurant openings in #Munich -- but now, finally the #organictraveller's #travelguide https://www.organictraveller.de/organictraveller-munich-restaurants comes with new entries for the #Glockenbach neighbourhood: lovely #Italian and #mediterranean / #oriental food which I full-heartedly recommend.
#Packagefree #supermarkets try hard to find new ways to survive - and those in #Bremen are no exception: The nicest #zerowaste shop in town is about to relocate, leaving its splendid venue behind, another one is turning into a #cooperative . The updated #organictraveller's #travelguide https://www.organictraveller.de/organictraveller-bremen-zero-waste also comes w/ new entries, e.g. a source of fresh #organic veges from a #communal #farm.
Gemütliche #Radtour durch #München: Heute, Fr 8.9.23 gibt's ab 18:30 eine Sonder-#CriticalMass aus Anlass der #NoIAA. Auf's Rad schwingen und die Stadt an einem lauen Sommerabend im Fahrradverbund aus unbekannter Perspektive, nämlich der der Autofahrenden, erkunden.
If you are in #Munich Friday to come (Sep 8th) join the extraordinary #CriticalMass in honour of the #NoIAA . Note that this leisurely #bicycleride (only this time) will start from the #Bavaria monument at 6:30pm (NOT as usual from BayrischeStaatsoper). @dieiaa @CriticalMass @fedibikes_de @mastobikes_de #BurnFatNotOil #München #cm #wirSindDerVekehr
