  • Camino Portugues

    In September 2019, I finally made it on my first Camino de Santiago in Portugal - from Porto to Santiago de Compostela. What a great experience! I am totally hooked and can't wait for a bigger time window to attempt the French Way now. Just as Goethe said: You haven't really been somewhere unless you've been there on foot. Check out my Youtube playlist of daily short summary videos of this thru-hike if the spirit moves you.

    Shanti Bhavan

    I consider myself blessed to have served as a volunteer teacher at Shanti Bhavan, one of the most inspiring education projects that is trying to eradicate generational poverty in India.

    Dream of a world only your heart can build, act with courage and love and don’t ask why. - Abraham George, founder of Shanti Bhavan

    Watch: The documentary Daughters of Destiny on Netflix, the trailer or my summary video on Youtube.
    Read: Alumna Shilpa Raj's The Elephant Chaser's Daughter and the founder Dr. George's India Untouched.
    Follow the school on social media! Facebook, Instagram, Flickr, Youtube and Twitter.
    Get involved! Donate to the school or become a volunteer at Shanti Bhavan.

    Photography & Travelling

    I am passionate about photography and travelling. So far I have travelled to nearly 60 countries and lived abroad for 4 years and I still hope to see a little more of the world. There hasn't been a single place that hasn't been worth it but nonetheless there are places where I felt a deeper connection, like India and Hong Kong. I have uploaded a few pics and will upload more over time - time permitting.
