On to Los Angeles: Universal Studios and Disney World. “The Disney parade is great,” enthuses mum Bella. “And with the Harry Potter attraction at Universal Studios, we thought we were flying – that was crazy!” adds Cornelia Corba. But the US metropolis was swept clean. “The tourists are still missing.”

Around 1000 miles further, in the US state of Montana, Cornelia Corba’s sister Claudia (55) enjoys exactly this calm. She lives on a remote range with horses and cows, the nearest neighbors are 20 minutes away. Bella: “This endless expanse is fascinating and at the end of the horizon the mountains appear.” Claudia, who is American by choice, visits her family in Munich twice a year. “But we facetime every day,” says Cornelia.
