You cannot imagine what this 6-letter word means to me. When I hear it, I feel pure joy and love in my heart. The adventurous spirit awakes and my fernweh tells me to pack my bags and explore this wondrous world. There is so much extraordinary beauty on this planet, and still, most of us do not know even 1% of it.

I am so lucky to have visited more than 44 countries on 6 continents during my lifetime. I studied in England. I lived and worked in Germany, Austria, Ireland and Australia. Right now I am building a business in Colombia. I left my hometown 8 years ago and have been exploring this beautiful world since. To some people, this may sound crazy, as they choose to spend all their life in one place and never leave their comfort zone. 

To leave my home and follow the call to go out and explore the world, was honestly the best decision I ever took. I learned from indigenous tribes, fellow backpackers, local artisans, generous hosts, ambitious businessmen, inspiring elders, wild hippies and chanting monks – but the most I learned from myself. Travelling has the power to confront you with who you are and help you to transform into who you want to be.
