Born before the fall of the Wall in 1989, so far my life has been dedicated to two things I like most: water and traveling. Four things actually, since I have an additional permanent craving for ramen and Italian pasta. From a young age on my curiosity for distant lands was triggered, although it took me a while to explore the possibilities of independent traveling.
In a report from my elementary school teacher (1994), it was mentioned that at the age of 5, I was always to be found playing at the ‘water table’. Making levees, letting them collapse and observing the aesthetics of flowing water apparently grasped my interest quite a while ago.
In recent years I’ve been active in the academic world, measuring water, plants, and other things all over the globe. Hopefully I can share a snippet of the beauty that our planet has to offer with you.
