About Me

Briefly: I´m an adventurous optimist, smiling and enjoying life and it´s beautiful stories :)

I grew up on a farm in the countryside in Bavaria very close to the Czech Republic. During my Bachelors I lived in different cities/countries and travelled around the world. I´m just addicted to adventures, always looking forward to traveling to new places, meeting people and exchanging about experiences and plans. I´d like to make a journey around the world after finishing university. :)

Oh aaand I love photography :) I´m kind of a self-taught photographer working self-employed. That´s the way I see the world:

Currently I´m doing my Masters in Media & Design Management commuting between Wiesbaden and my home town.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Just one? I´m really bad in making decisions.
I felt the magic when the sun was rising at Machu Picchu, I saw a smoking volcano in Peru, I did a road trip through Australia, I ate the salt of the Uyuni in Bolivia, I had a 10 hour lift in Australia, I travelled 17 hours by bus through Peru, I dived at The Great Barrier Reef, I did an amazing skydive from 1.400 ft in Australia and I smelled Bolivian geysers.
