In Hamburg, there’s always a fresh breeze. That’s the way it is here in the north where I grew up. The wind of change blows ceaselessly. I only found out much later what that would mean for me.
„YOU’RE DOING A COMMERCIAL APPRENTICESHIP, SO YOU’VE GOT SOMETHING SOLID.“
So in 1981, on the advice of my parents, I started my training in Hamburg to become an industrial clerk in an oil mill. My dream was actually to become a travel agent. Even then, change and travel excited me. But many beliefs destroyed my dream: you won’t earn anything there or: that’s not safe. Do something sensible with your life.
