Work in biotech industry (cancer research) in Cambridge Massachusetts. Originally from Germany, but have lived in the United States for 25 years. Travel for work takes me around the world, but I love to explore.
Five things I cannot live without: Good food. Books. Music. My friends. Movies.
Favorite trips so far: New Zealand in 2009. Ireland in 2009 and Sweden in 2010.
Outstanding travel goals: Australia, Japan, Iceland, Alaska, Patagonia.
All kinds of travel are appreciated. I backpacked through New Zealand, but have also stayed in really nice hotels. Very fond of the outdoors, but love to sleep in a bed rather than a tent.
Favorite quote and motto: "What lies behind you and what lies in front of you, pales in comparison to what lies inside of you." Ralph Waldo Emerson.
