Born in Munich 1989 I always loved activity, as long as I can remember. Cycling was not an “always passion” for me. I discovered my pleasure for it, when I was 22. Before, I cycled to school and around the city to visit friends. One day a really good friend of mine borrowed me her second mountainbike and took me on a tour, even that I was not trained at all! First of all it was just very exhausting and painfull when my legs were full of lactate from the first uphill part on. But I got better from tour to tour and soon I got stoked about being outside. At the same time you are getting forward very eco-friendly and healthy, this is very important to me because I love the outdoors. This is the main reason why I love cycling and furthermore you can stop for photographing or having a chat to strangers more easily than with a car. Instead of walking it is possible to ride 100km or more on one day, what is quite relevant when passing long distances without any resources for water.
In 2015 I did a 3 month cycling trip from Capetown (South Africa) to Windhoek (Namibia) and back.
