after nearly 20 years at sea - started as able seaman and left as master mariner - i am working since 2004 as a maritime pilot at kiel canal. live with my family close to the baltic sea beach in a suburb called warnemuende (city of rostock).
i have been travelling several times to london, liverpool, glasgow and along the east coast of australia (at sea and ashore). due to my hotel "experience" worldwide i prefer to stay with local hosts to learn more about country and people. i am 49 and non-smoker.
