My name is HANS Nickels. I am 57 years old and work as a civil engineer for harbor construction in Hamburg / Germany. I live together with my two children (daughter DARIA, 18 years and son ROBERT, 16 years) in the vicinity of Hamburg. We like to travel around the world and in the past few years we have been in Thailand, Indonesia (Bali);China, Morocco and several times at the east coast of the United States (New York City all the way down to Key West). We are very interested in the US and we love to spend our time there.
