About Me


Reducing my ecological footprint, simplifying my life, trying to gather the courage to finally go aborad for some time


I guess I'm kind of a smart-arse and I am always keen on learning something new. I don't like to ask for help but I'm getting better at that ;) I do have the "gift ob gab" and need to take care not to steamroll anyone who is a bit more sensitive. But you can be as blunt and as honest to me as you like - no hard feelings.

"We have normality. Anything you still can't cope with is therefore your own problem." - borrowed from Douglas Adams ;)


Self-sufficiency, small-scale farming, DIY (from wine-making and coffee roasting to basket-weaving - I try out everything I can), the "Dark Age", (pseudo-)Medieval re-enactment and faires, sword fighting ... (I will add more when I remember more stuff)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Dancing around a ginormous bonfire in the solitude of northern Sweden in the blackest of nights under a starry sky.

Getting lost in yourself for hours on end at the roaring surf of the Atlantic Ocean at the harsh and wild coast of western Ireland.

Stumbling into a live concert at the northernmost point of Britain with amazingly intense artists.

Countries I’ve Visited
