About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Hitchhike from Bali to Malaysia

ABOUT ME

I am a nomad who is traveling around the world.

After hitchhiking from Germany to India I lived a year in Australia and now I am going onwards to travel all SE-Asia

I am the creator of a site called hitchlog.com which is a social web site for sharing your own hitchhiking experiences. With this website I try to encourage others to give hitchhiking a try.

I love to juggle and I do a lot of contact juggling, see: http://fb.com/floofcontact

I love the breeze of the wind when it blows into my face while I carry my three things on my back. I love the smile of children in poor countries. I love being in lonesome mountains, gasping in awe while starring into the void on the top of a mountain. I love the feeling of connection, the cheerful smile, laughter and life on a psy trance festival. I love vipasana meditation and becoming wise.

Sometimes I play guitar and piano and sometimes I do web applications with Ruby on Rails. This is my Blog music: last.fm I founded Hitchlog.com

I am playing guitar since I was 15 and since 2006 I started to teach myself piano. I love music and I cannot live without it. and if my arms are gone and if my legs are cut and if my ears are deaf and if my sight is blind, there will still be music in my head.

PHILOSOPHY

let down the decisive moment in a career is always there, as career is meaningless, it is all about the play, so "play", do everything besides and let the world take a look at you... look away from yourself and Lead yourself into seduction.

The world is a book and those who don't travel only read one page Saint Augustine

What seems to us catastrophe, his spirit experiences as a secret victory Knut Hamsun

sheathe your sword Come Sheathe your sword Let’s go to bed together Mount my bed And mix The magic works of love Will breed big trust between us. "Homer, The Odyssey"

Hitchhiking: The idea is to remain in a constant state of departure while always arriving. It saves on introductions and good-byes. hitchhiking animates people to discard their prejudices on others and therefor has to be encouraged.

El Hombre Superior el hombre superior es un niño y un gran bailarín, porque el niño no tiene prejuicios, es inocente, juega con la vida solamente, y el bailarín hace del juego un riesgo permanente, se pasea por la cuerda floja del devenir, hace de su vida un continuo experimentarse a sí mismo.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

- a grasshopper that exploded in the midst of a daydream i once head - Once I wanted to hitchhike to Edinburgh and instead of drinking beer in a pub I ended up dancing around a fire for 6 hours without drinking nor eating during an ancient native american ceremony.

Teach, Learn, Share

It would be nice if I could teach you: - guitar, piano (if you want to learn guitar i can teach you the basics and give you some lessons) - develop a website using ruby on rails (which is more exciting than it sounds, you can also get the short tour why) - hitchhiking (I can give you tips and tell you of former trips which i am going to do anyway, or you can also join me on a hitchhiking trip) - solving the rubik's cube in less than 4 minutes - solving the rubik's revenge in less than 10 minutes - german, spanish, english (I don't have any book to teach you, but maybe I can get one, would be great if you had one though) - How to swim (it's my favorite sport which keeps me up and sportive) - Lots of geeky stuff (if you're a geek and I'm a geek, we're already a match, i bet all the geeks can learn from each other by showing off what they can do on the computer)

It would be nice if you could teach me: - photography - how to cope with the unknown on a daily basis (if you have tips they are highly welcome) - to play more music instruments (seriously, please teach me the basics, Im a quick learner ;) - Sailing (even though I already know how to sail, it would be great to archive a bigger proficiency) - how to prepare raw food properly (ranging from raw meet to raw chocolate, to anything that is really healthy.) - cooking (teach me how to cook your favourite meal or something that is good and very cheap) - languages (would be great if you can teach me with a book, the basic grammar for example) - how to live cheap (teach me how dumpster diving works at your place, how to avoid spending money on unnecessary things)
