In this Section I tell you something about me and my work.
…long-time traveller, multi-lingual story-teller, guest travel blogger, hobby film creator, hobby photographer and Couchsurfer. For more details, view my Linkedin Profile.
I love to engage with different cultures and share my most interesting encounters with locals, nature, food and travel mates in both visual and written form to any sort of traveler. No matter if a traveler has a tight time schedule or is scarce on budget, my desire is to make people understand that traveling is about exploring the big thing called culture in its most authentic way: to do what THEY do and be open-minded. At a glance, I am always keen to learn about places and their cultures and explore them with the locals; because I think that they are the real experts of their home no matter how often we look at the guide book in our suitcase or backpack. My philosophy is to go out and listen to them, be interested in their life, hang out with them and eventually start feeling like a local.
Like this I collect a lot of stories and visual material that I publish here and on my YouTube channel.
How it took off…
All started with annual family vacations in many countries of Europe as a child and later with self-initiated low-budget trips with friends such as hitchhiking in central Europe in 2007 or a Road trip to Gdansk along the Polish Baltic sea coast in 2010. From these experiences I was inspired to stay three months in New Zealand in 2009, wandered around for three months in Spain in 2012, made my internship in social media marketing and travel correspondence in a five-month-stay in Ecuador in 2013, then explored Peru, Bolivia, Paraguay, Brazil, Uruguay, Argentina and Colombia in three months. Now, many places more will follow…
