You will most likely find me in the forest, next to the lake, reading a book. Just follow the cigar smoke!
I am a lawyer from Germany who went on sabbatical after 7 years of work. I gave up my law firm not because I wasn’t interested in law any longer, but because I am equally interested in many other fields, among them politics, history, economics, philosophy and literature. And as my time on this planet is limited, I thought it would be a shame to stick to one field for all of my life.
I am an avid traveller and I hope to share some of my adventures with you here. I have led youth exchange groups to Israel, helped to fight forest fires in France, repatriated kidnapped children to the United States, crossed the Australian outback, spent a week at Evin prison in Iran, worked s a lawyer for the US Army, walked across England from coast to coast and gave up my job as a lawyer to study philosophy. Knowing myself, more adventures will follow.
Fulfilling a long dream, I am studying for an MA in Philosophy at the Open University and for a BSc in Politics & International Relations at LSE.
My current goals are learning Italian and making a move into journalism.
Thanks for deciding to read my blog. Please share, comment and criticise – but above all enjoy.
