With the same priority we want to write about young, new, unknown artists. Because it’s worth to tell about talented people to give them the chance to get their stage to become popular and inspire other skilled people to create their own masterpiece.

Another goal is to tell about spaceflight. Shymkent is located just 500 km away from Cosmodrome Baikonur – the heart of spaceflight. Spaceflight is the best to inspire young people for Math, Physics, Chemistry, Technology and Curiosity. These five topics are important to build the good foundation for a successful technology country. We want that Kazakhstan is getting strong again. And spaceflight is important: Earth is just the cradle of mankind. And mankind have to go out into the kindergarten like Moon and Mars to expand knowledge, resources and living space. The next new frontier.

With our travel reports of Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Germany and around the World we want to inspire people to travel, too. Because travelling opens the minds and extends the horizon of everyone. It’s good for intercultural understanding.
