“The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.”
Lao Tzu, philosopher of ancient China.
When I was 20 years old, I was totally happy to live in Germany. I had all my friends here, I was happy with them. Good friends also do their vacations together, thats why two of my best friends and me decided in the summer of 2007 to do a trip through the Baltic states Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. I liked it a lot to have a backpack on my shoulders, good friends around me and don’t know what does expect us in the next stop of our travel. I started to like to see new places, new countries, the different live style off people and to always start looking for a cheap place to stay after arriving a new city.
After that experience and after I’ve got more involved in the student organization AIESEC I was more open to different cultures and people. Somehow I started to like the Latin American culture and I started to learn Spanish. After our Cuban teacher invited us to a Latin party, it was sure for me to go one day to Latin America.
In 2008 a friend asked me if I would like to join him for a one week trip to the United Arab Emirates and one day later we booked the flight. After this week in a totally different culture it was sure for me, that its time for me to explorer the world! I also discovered the photography as a big hobby of myself and I started to see the world with different eyes.
But who I am? My name is Mathias. I am from Germany and now a graduated Media and Computer Scientist. I am discovering the world by working in different countries and traveling between the time of the next stop. I don’t plan that much in advance. It comes as it comes. But it never comes like you expected it. So let’s see what comes next…
