The city of Dresden used to be one of the most splendid and baroque cities in Germany. How different it was the first time I visited the city shortly after the Berlin Wall came down. I met a man there and together we travelled through the recently liberated Eastern European countries and Turkey, which had a profound impact on me.
My great passion for archaeology, travel, mountains and learning foreign languages (Latin, Greek, Arabic, Russian) has led me to many places in Europe, the Middle East and the Caucasus region. I am always in for a game backgammon or chess.
