NEWS from December 25, 2005
My dear friends!
It has been a long time since I posted my last news for you. But you are lucky, it's Christmas time and time for gifts :-). Some of you have been asking all over the year why I am neglecting my website in such a way I did but the reason is that not much happened this year which would have been really worth of telling you.
Since summer 2005 I am working as an independent city guide but do also other small side jobs such as working as a translator at conferences, teaching English to students and doing some other small jobs. I didn't have a vacation for more than a year now and I know that most of you think that's quite unusual. Well, that's true but the the prize for having a freelance job. But don't worry, my travel passion and thirst for new places, languages and cultures is still there. I hope that in 2006 I will get the chance to explore and discover exciting and beautiful places again. However, I wasn't bored this year at all because several of you came to Schwerin and Wittenfoerden to visit me here. The furthest came all the way from Brasil and visited me even three times this year, thank you Tomaz! I am attaching a picture showing me and my Brasilian friends at the beach of Schwerin lake this summer. The second photo shows me in front of the cabrio sightseeing bus on which I was working quite a lot this year. I was sitting on top of it with a microphone explaining the visitors Schwerin's sights.
I wish you all MERRY CHRISTMAS and a good start into the new year! May it only bring us the best! And don't forget:

But it isn't! I was born in Rostock, right at the Baltic
Sea, in the nice state of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania which is situated in the north of Germany. We are the state less densely populated in Germany. We've got impressive sandy
beaches, rocky cliffs, many wonderful blue lakes and much more. Pure and
Now my parents are living in Wittenfoerden near Schwerin, the capital of our state famous for its beautiful fairy-tale
castle. Here I used to spend Christmas, Easter and part of my vacation over the past
years. Finally I can call this place my home as well. In August 2001 I started working at the
German Incoming General Agent AG in Schwerin in order to receive the official Travel Agent license in June 2002.
From August 2000 to February 2001 I was doing an internship at a tour operator in
Seattle, the Rain Capital of the USA located on the shores of Puget Sound. It's a great city with almost daily beautiful sunrises and sunsets and not really that much rain at all! The snow-capped North Cascades to the East, the Olympic Peninsula with its unique rain forest to the West, the Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument and the Mount Rainier National Park to the South and the tranquile San Juan Islands and exciting Vancouver to the North; what better destination one could
I CAN BE MYSELF...
...is my life theme which I am trying to live
I am still figuring out though what I am really looking for in life.
My goal is a life filled with PEACE, LOVE, HAPPINESS, JOY and
I wish everyone of you the same, my friends, may you have a great year
2006! Be human and listen to your hearts!
