But now I travel around the world with a bicycle with 3 special gadgets: a Trombone, a Spätzlebrett and Golfstick (7 Iron).

5. What is important for you while traveling and why are you traveling?

Never give up! Join your live!! Have fun!!!

6. What kind of travel advice would you give others?

 Go by bicycle you see more of the world! I never done a bicycle-trip before and now I travel around the world! So I can just recommend you to use the transportation-form of a bicycle because the real live of a country is beside the cities and the bicycle gives you the chance to discover that!!!

7. What is your next mission/trip?

My current mission is to travel around the world with the bicycle, a trombone, a Spätzlebrett, a golfstick and make every 2 weeks a radioshow/podcast about my adventures.

8. What is the best place you visited so far?

My favorite cities are: Lisbon, Istanbul, Tallin and Moskva. But till now I joined every country I visited.

9. What is a place you want to visit in the future?

 Easter Island

10. What is your favorite place in your home country that you would recommend to others?

Blautopf in Blaubeuren, the Obstwiesen-Festival in Dornstadt (it’s a 5-days-free Music Festial) and of course my city of ULM.

Ulm has the highest church tower in the world and is the birthplace of Albert Einstein. But also go to the Wilhesmburg (great view over the city for free), the old town and to the following laces:

Jazzkeller Sauschdall, CAT-Ulm,Studentencafé and Hexenhaus.Thoose are volunteered places where you will find a Party or a good concer for a really cheap price!

In Hemperium, Murphys, Olgar Bar, Rosi, Klembotzky, Eden and Swobster and Buddha Lounge are the places are where you can hang around, drink a beer, get in touch with locals and will have a good conversation/vibe/party.

The best time you can come to Ulm is around July when the “Nabada” is. Search for the date of “Schwörmontag” in google and come. There are around 10.000 people drunk on the river of danube and make a waterfight. Everbody can join! Also during the weekend will be a big Party all over the city. Big Bands will play in Front of the Münster like: The Who, Jamiroquai, Elton John or else…

11. Do you have any other tips or tricks based on your experience that you wish to share?

Bicycle journeys! For me it’s a new door that opend. Do it like I started: travel from Donaueschingen to Vienna or Budapest along the river of danube by bicycle. Till the end of Slovakia the roads are very good and it will be an new experience. If you done that, then you want to continue to the Tulca at the black sea. Don’t think about the sport, fo myself: I drink and smoke, just make your way and join the adventure.

      Sure, that’s the idea of the growing datebase. If there is any questions about places the interviewed person mentioned, feel free to ask the person about places and travel tips.
