Switzerland – Sydney – Maafushivaru – Singapore – Los Angeles – Istanbul – Düsseldorf – Switzerland: After 20 stunning days around the globe, the NEVERSTOPMOVING Trip ended on Tuesday in Switzerland at the Maurice Lacroix headquarters in Zurich.
During these days, Dragana experienced a lot of unforgettable moments. Wheter observing whale sharks in the Indian Ocean, climbing 134 metres above Sydney Harbour or meeting Henrik Fisker, the designer of the Karma in Los Angeles – each day offered an exclusive and unique activity.

One might think that Dusseldorf does not have that much to offer like previous five NEVERSTOPMOVING destinations. However, Germany gave nice final touch to the NEVERSTOPMOVING adventure. After two hectic weeks, it was really nice to take relaxing tour around beautiful parks of Dusseldorf and the old city with houses and churches from 13th century. Especially, because I thought that Dusseldorf is strictly business city, but actually it has so much for tourists, too. As in all the other destinations also here I had a local guide who was expert in culture and history, so I learnt a lot about the city. We ended the city tour in brewery Kurzer. This is the newest brewery in the city, located in the cellar of one of the oldest buildings in the old city. The place is really cozy, and they have great beers. If you visit Dusseldorf, I recommend you to check it ;)
In the afternoon, after enjoying spa and gym facilities in Melia hotel, we hit the road to Essen with United Limousines where I attended famous Red Dot awards for best design in 2011. Maurice Lacroix designer Sandro Reginelli was one of the winners of best of the best design award for Pontos Decentrique Phases de Lune Watch. It is really a great success as the competition is pretty fierce, and only less than 1% of the entries manage to pass the tough jury. After the spectacular ballet, we went for the party at Red Dot Design museum. That is one of the coolest places I have ever seen. Just imagine the museum in the old factory, where you can touch and try all designers’ products. The waiters keep bringing nice food and drinks, and DJ is playing great music…that was definitely really great way to spend the officially last NEVERSTOPMOVING evening.
By looking at the Red Square and the onion-domed skyline of the Kremlin you can sense the city’s glorious past. By walking through the city you’ll feel Moscow’s fascinating present – of a metropolis embracing change and its new encounters with the West. Hot Spot: The Arbat promenade with plenty of shops and cafés
