Interview with Tobias Interview
with Tobias

Hello Tobias, welcome back! We hope you had a wonderful time. You just drove from the south all the way to the north of Germany with the CV640. Why did you choose exactly this region for your trip?:

I chose a mix of mountains and sea to be able to visit different locations. We spent most of the trip at the Baltic Sea. Here, I was fascinated by the typical North German landscape with many grain fields, lighthouses, the typical building style and of course the endless beaches.


Freedom of wild camping or comfort of campsites? Which do you appreciate more?:

Basically, I have always been more of a wild camper because I enjoyed the peace and closeness to nature. On this trip, however, we were on campsites throughout and I have come to the conclusion that for me it depends very much on the destination which is better. On Rügen, wild camping would have been rather difficult, as there are few completely quiet places. For me, the charm would have been lost. For destinations where there are really secluded spots, I prefer wild camping.


And where was your favourite place to spend the night?:

That's hard to say, we had really great campsites throughout. But the nicest one was on Rügen in the village of Dranske. The campsite was rather small and familiar and not far from Drankse is a beautiful beach.


From a photographic point of view, what do you find exciting about the cuisine and/or culture in this region?:

From a photographic point of view, the landscape is definitely exciting. You can play wonderfully with the many cereal crops and rapeseed fields. The architecture is also something beautiful. There are also many old beech forests that come into question as photo motifs.


The "top three" of your explored spots?:

Spitzingsee
Bavaria: Dranske
Rügen: Cape Arkona


What would be number 1 for you in the "worth seeing" category and why?:

Cape Arkona at sunset. During the day, this cape is a completely overcrowded tourist spot. Towards evening, however, there is almost no one left and you experience a mixture of cliffs, lighthouses and flowering rapeseed fields in a magnificent light. There's something magical about it and it's super for a very relaxed evening walk with impressive views.


What is your personal insider tip for this itinerary?:

Travel anti-cyclically, i.e. visit the spots where tourists are rather towards evening to feel the real magic and avoid the crowds. I also found it great not to travel to a different place every day, but to stay in the same place for a few days. That way you get a feel for the people and their way of life there and you can build a deeper relationship with your surroundings.


Would you recommend the combination of "work + motorhome" to other Creatores and if so, why?:

If you enjoy travelling and photography/filming, then definitely. You can combine your two passions in this way and really get involved in both and take your time.


Which resulting photo from your trip is your favourite subject and why?:

The photo with the Camper Van in the beautiful nature. It reflects Rügen as it is. Full of grain and rapeseed fields that create a magical atmosphere at sunset.
