in between

have you ever felt like not knowing exactly where you belong to? which part of a country or which country at all you want to live in? which way the right one for yourself is? I guess I’m always feeling like that and always thinking about that when I return from a journey…

I have just returned from Istanbul and Israel, the first I spent four days at, the latter I had ten days to discover. far too few, if you ask me. or anybody. but it was long enough to start thinking about my life again. and now I am packing for Indonesia, my next surftrip, starting on saturday. I am really, really looking forward to catch some waves again, being in the line-up, waiting for sets… for me it’s carpe diem at its best there.

but… and that is a really stupid thought perhaps… I am afraid of the returning after three weeks. because I know that it will be hard. hard to be in a rainy country again, without shores. hard to live a 9 to 5 life again. hard to deal with all those tiny problems we use to complain about.

and every time I return, I come up with naive daydreams about going abroad. the question now is: am I allowed to manipulate destiny? or is it the other way round and paths are only created, when I walk them…?

hey there

hello, shalom, hei, hallå, olá, ahoj, merhaba and namaste!

it took me a very long time to travel the world with passion again, but now, as it is rising unstoppably inside of me, I enjoy it with open arms and open eyes, almost like a child.

surfing has become my best friend on the road, if it is wavesurfing, couchsurfing, tentsurfing or whatever you can think of. and you know, “the best surfer is the one who has the most fun in the water”! I’m sometimes still working on that issue…

english is not the language I have been raised with, but from childhood on it has been a very important instrument for me and in the meantime I guess I’m using it more often as my mother/father tongue.

why did I start this blog? actually it hasn’t been an idea of my own. a friend I met on the road has called my attention to it and as I am just about to smooth and polish an already written absolutely true story, I guess it couldn’t hurt to get to know you, dear world.

I am really looking forward and I hope you feel the same,

hang loose & take care
