Born and living in Cologne, Germany, September '54. My passion is traveling and searching the contact to the local people in visiting weekly markets, markethalls etc. Taking a photo from exceeding people without talking to them is rather silly for me. I lost a piece of my heart in Namibia/Africa. There is a foundation called "OMBILI" which I encourage.

Me and my wife bought quite a lot of lottery tickets to get 1. price. But no luck. And the end I was cheesed off and had some soup. What I didn't know, my wife bought another 3 tickets and what shall I say: We got the 1. price. She gave me the ticket as a present because my wife is not a friend from flying, balloning or parachuting (omg).

A long time it took to find the right date, weather and suitable people. Finally 25th of May was the day and here you can see some impressions of the ballooning.
