Photos about my missions and journey you will find under PICTURES FROM FAR AWAY.
A life in a continuous change between Europe and foreign countries and even more some hard experiences during my humanitarian missions left some traces in heard and soul and led me step by step to revise my plans for the future.
In the beginning a career in the humanitarian sector was my ultimate goal but after some time (like other collegues as well) I asked myself if a life like this is good for the inner balance in a term-view. Too often you look into the abyss of mankind - especially in conflict areas.
Mountains were always the destination for my time-off but also refuge at the same time. But during my medical studies I thought concerning a mountain-guide-training: "better not to make your hobby to your job". But later on - encouraged by an austrian collegue and friend but also sobered by the health care machinery in Germany - I changed my opinion and asked myself: "why not making your hobby to your job?"
Togehter with my austrian collegue we trained for the entrance tests for the Austrian mountain guide training, which I could enter in autumn 2013. After intensive and instructive courses in rock, ice and snow I could pass the final exams in Chamonix in summer 2015.
Since then it is my pleasure to share my love and enthusiasm for mountains with guests and clients and offer them a save approach to this magnificent part of nature and landscape. The combination between doctor and mountain guide shouldn´ t be a disadvantage.
Impressions from different tours - maybe also to stimulate your planing - you can find under WHAT IS WAITING FOR YOU.
