This blog is about sharing my trips and my experiences on my travels. I’m not a journalist and as you see, I’m grammatically a disaster (comes from living in another country for 20 years) … but I like sharing and it makes it easier when I return to avoid telling the same stories over and over – which can become quite boring.

If you know me than you know I am an American artist living in Bremen, Germany since 1999. If you don’t, than I’ll tell you I came here as a hopeless romantic for love. A love that lasted 14 years… and than some. Anyway, I’m here, and now divorced, and living a life I had always hoped for, but never expected. Living in another country (I’ve lived in three) and being able to see the world is my wonderful reality.

If I want to go somewhere, but don’t have the funds, I’ll find people to stay with. When I travel, I’m rarely a „tourist“. I like to follow the locals. I like to see where they go, what they do. Old man bars are usually the best to understand the social history and culture… plus, old men can be loads of fun!

I’ve been all over Europe and North America, next year will be Vietnam and Japan. I don’t always have a plan, but I usually say yes unless it can hurt me or someone else. Through this, I at times experience lovely and usually unexpected situations. I hope you enjoy reading about them.

You can follow me on the bottom right of the screen. You’ll get emails from The server when I write, because it isn’t regular when I do.
