About Me


I am a optimistic and uncomplicated type of guy, openminded, tolerant, adventurous, with a good sense of humour and many interests.

I love to learn languages and to explore other countries. Travelling is my passion :') I enjoy to meet new people and appreciate every encounter on my journey.
I am quite curious and easy-to satisfy, especially when it comes to food...


Don't take things too serious.
With a positive attitude, you will get positive results!
