  • What else ...

    My girlfriend Jessica and I have quit our jobs in Germany early 2020, started travelling in New Zealand and stayed there throughout the year. In 2021, we planned cruising the Pacific Islands with friends on a sailboat, but due to Covid plans changed several times. Travelling beautiful Mexico is great, Ecuador and Peru too.
    Jess and I met in our Master's program of Construction in Real Estate Management in Berlin/Helsinki.
    We are looking for any kind of interesting job/ project and would be happy to contribute time, manpower and thoughts.
