About Me

ABOUT ME

open minded, friendly, laid back/relaxed

PHILOSOPHY

"I can accept failure, but I can't accept not trying" - Michael Jordan

Everybody should try to live his dreams and live his life the way, he wants to and not according to other people's or society's expectations.

"It's not how many times you fall that matters, it's how many time you get back up." - Bad things will happen, but everything bad also has some positive side effects. You may not realize these immediately, but sometimes bad things happen and only time makes you realize, that they changed you for the better or made you step up/take a step forward and thereby you kind of needed these events to take place in your life.

Always treat people well and with respect and keep a positive attitude...in short: Life is beautiful, so enjoy it while it lasts.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Craziest thing was probably quitting my job in January 2011 to travel the world. Went to Costa Rica for 1/2 year afterwards, trying to learn Spanish and then continued to Brazil (trying to learn Portuguese). Loved Balneario Camboriu so much, that I actually came back on a 1year student visa after just 2 months.
Most impressive experience might have been scuba diving with reef sharks, rays/mantas in the Maldives and skydiving/paragliding in the Alps.
