I am a business professional in international commerce. I grew up in Hamburg, Germany. My urge to learn another language brought me to Spain, more precisely to Catalonia. For 10 years I live in Barcelona now.
During my High School time I lived for one year in the United States, Pennsylvania. I have travelled through more than 25 states from the East Coast to the West Coast and back; I would love to do that trip again, but with a motorcycle.
Furthermore I travelled Thailand, Turkey, Spain, Poland, Finland, Sweden, Canada, UK, the Netherlands, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, London, Istanbul, Paris, Vienna, Bangkok, etc., etc.
I am sociable, outgoing and sportive. I prefer direct people to not waste time reading between the lines. I have too many hobbies to list them all, primary interests are cooking, internet, any water or wind related sports, gardening and electronic music. I have practiced 16 years of Judo and 4 years of Rugby and Capoeira. My favorite sports today are kitesurfing, pilates and work out, and for sure once in a while to rave (can become a sport as well:)
I prefer to travel backpack then Hotel style. Favorite travel destinations on my to-do-list are: Madagascar, Ethiopia, Burma, Diving in Palau, Mountain Gorillas in Rwanda and the Panamericana.
