About Me


...see the rest of the world:)


I would prefer to let my references speak;) Yet, there is only 1 so far; so here we go...I like the unconventional ways of life, am generally open-minded, uncomplicated and easy to be with. I am fascinated by new cultures and like to get into contact with locals whereever I travel.


eat what the locals eat:)
