I was raised freely amongst cows, bread and beer on the Bavarian countryside in Southern Germany. After two unsuccessful studies at Uni and a bit of traveling I held on to a carpentry apprenticeship which I finished successfully in 2016. Inspired by the Journeymen years (“Wanderjahre”) I decided to leave my home for at least 3 years and 1 day in order to find different work, improve my skills, explore the world and myself. Since then I’ve been traveling the world and worked as a builder, mainly in Canada and New Zealand. In these places I had the chance to become a part of local communities, make friends with wonderful people and got inspired to follow my personal path into a desirable future. Sustainable I want it to be, natural and green. On my way back home, I thought and told everyone, “I will not fly!” I want to travel carbon-friendly and slow.
My idea of cycling home all the way on a SOLAR POWERED ELECTRIC CARGO BIKE - which is now for sale by the way ;-) - didn’t quite work out the way I thought, so I ended up hitchhiking from Singapore to India. My path took me also through Nepal where I spent some weeks volunteering and living at Conscious Impact - a place where I felt home. From India I took a flight to Istanbul, Turkey and again continued hitchhiking all the way to Munich, Germany to return home after almost three years of traveling - very spontaneously and just in time for my moms birthday.
Right now I’m freelancing as a transcriber and carpenter and publishing my first little book.
I’m also working on creating an environment and lifestyle that is happy, healthy and wholistic (sustainable). How this will look like is not clear to me yet. Maybe building a little self-sufficient off-grid cabin?
Bis Ende diesen Jahres (2019) werde ich mein erstes Buch “Ohne Geld auf Hawaii” fertigstellen, drucken und veröffentlichen. Darin geht es um eine freiwillige Herausforderung mich dem Thema Armut, Mittellosigkeit, Abhängigkeit und Vertrauen zu stellen. Mit diesem Buch möchte ich im Tagebuchstil meine Erlebnisse, Gedanken und Gefühle während dieser Zeit teilen und zum nachdenken anregen. Mir hat dieses Erlebnis die Augen und das Herz geöffnet und wünsche mir mit diesem kleinen Buch, dies auch bei dir zu erreichen.
Bei Interesse und für Vorbestellungen darfst du mir gerne ein Email schreiben an: firstname.lastname@example.org
PS: This book will also be released in English!
By the end of this year (2019), I will finish, print and publish my first book "Happy, homeless on Hawaii". It is a voluntary challenge to confront topics like poverty, destitution, dependency and trust. With this book, I would like to share my experiences, thoughts and feelings during this time in a diary style and make you think. This experience has opened my eyes and my heart and with this little book I wish to achieve this in you as well.
