** About me
The facts: My Name is Daniel and I’m born in September 1985, that means that I’m currently 23yo, but that changes from year to year. I was born in a small town named Lohne which is located in north-west Germany where I grew up before I moved to Hamburg, where I lived for years until I sold my apartment and all my other stuff except my backpack and the stuff which fills the backpack in April 2009.
The big thing for me definitely is travelling and that’s where I really see my future I travelled in 42 countries inside europe and northern africa so far and, as you see on this page, I really wanna continue. I mostly travel by hitchhiking, my biggest trips by thumb so far brought me to Iceland, Sicily, the north cape in Norway, Turkey, all over eastern- and south-eastern Europe and all the way down to Morocco. Travelling is really something I call existantial for me. Oh, and I love football. In Germany I support the 1st division club VfB Stuttgart and the 5th Division Club Altona 93 from Hamburg and I’m pretty sure that one of the things I will miss most on my trip will be the sunday afternoons in the cosy stadium of Altona 93 watching them loosing with a beer in my hand. But I really like it to watch football in foreign countries as well. I think it’s a good way to get to know the mentality of the locals and some genuine and honest local culture.
I really don’t like racism, xenophobia, speciesism, homophobia or any other kind of intolerance and I try to do something against these things within the possibilities that are given to me. I don’t like the military as well and in Germany I was involved in some anti-nuclear power movements or actions, too. Save the planet! Oh, and I like beer but decline any other kind of hard alcohol or drugs for myself.
I think that’s almost all I want to tell the world about me, if you’ve got any further questions, feel free to contact me!
