About Me


passionate traveller no matter how far...
I love being around friends, cooking together, making excursions, being outside, meeting new people telling interesting stories and sharing a precious time;
I like reading, photography especially landscapes, swimming and other kinds of sports, I enjoy being on my own from time to time, I am fascinated by all sorts of animals and admire the the whole complexity and interrelation of ecosystems, landscapes and their beings...
What else... I love exploring new cultures, their food, markets, music, tradition and history;
In Vienna I like finding great restaurants or bars, I love food and like I used to say - life is toooo short to drink poor wine, no?

In short: I like to live an open-minded life filled with lots of great companions, positive movement, energy and diversity!

And I believe, we are all united in our differences!


Life's for sharing! - So is my couch ;-)

Music, Movies, and Books

I like the style of french movies, also some classics with jack lemmon or clint eastwood..., B movies are interested, I like the deep black british humor - movies, tarantino's, I love the lord of the rings movie, books but most the amazing country of new zealand! most of all I love watching documentaries about whatever nature, politics, history, religion, resources, projects, animals,.....

I am a excited broadband-music user, there is always the right sound for the right occasion! my latest discovery: the cat empire, from Australia - great sound!

Books: literature about disasters and all relating stuff... of course, philosophy, psychology, ecology, biographies of interesting personalities, NG Travel Reports, Books about ecosystems, planting,... etc. I guess its time to read a novel again....
