About the Traveler
Born into a Christian family in Eastern Germany, I always used to dream about going places, meeting interesting people and experiencing new ways of looking at life. My parents encouraged a deep love for all things nature, hiking in the alps every summer, enjoying the spectacular lonely dunes of the Baltic seas, doing trips into Eastern Europe, even working with charities delivering humanitarian Aid into crisis areas. During High School I went on a student’s exchange to Israel and all by myself to the US – and once I was “grown up” (did I ever?) there was just no stopping my global adventures.
I love the way traveling stretches and shapes you as a person as every new place leaves its shade of colour on the canvas of your heart. If I leave positive footprints is entirely up to me and the way I choose to travel. I am not the type to carve hearts into trees or scribble poetry on bathroom walls. I love people, and if they feel they can share their stories with me it is a privilege I enjoy thoroughly.
Right now I am living, working and raising a family in South Africa. My husband and I love being on the road together. Every year we cover at least 250.000 km by car alone, plus the countless air plane flights. We have been driving all around South Africa, coast to coast, visiting many spectacular sights and hidden treasures.
The Garden Route, the Natal Midlands, Cape Town – favorite places! Amazing nation of a million potential successes. Worth a visit, worth the stay, worth to linger longer. I plan to share the spots that touched my heart with you, and maybe give you some hints on where to go and what to do.
But there is of course Germany … home to Romantics, Poets and Musicians, all of which part of my home, my family, my upbringing. I will definitely indulge in sharing my love for this amazing nation with you – once time allows. I was lucky enough to travel the USA coast-to-coast and back as a musician of a band, travel to Asia and Central America, and maybe you want to just sit comfy at home and look at what i saw. I love taking photographs with very simple equipment. Before moving to Africa I was sworn to film, but digital is just so much more convenient under African conditions.
This blog is an absolute luxury since my job is demanding and not leaving much time for anything else. Be patient and you might come across the one or other special place you might have missed otherwise.
