Well....I made it! I am officially 30 years old! Actually it has been more than a month now and I still didn't get the chance to say THANKS to all of you who have thought of me on my special day! I received many emails, phone calls, sms, letters and gifts from all over the world for which I would like to thank you all very much! At first it was a strange feeling to turn 30.

castle. Here I used to spend Christmas, Easter and part of my vacation over the past
years. Finally I can call this place my home as well. In August 2001 I started working at the
German Incoming General Agent AG in Schwerin in order to receive the official Travel Agent license in June 2002.
From August 2000 to February 2001 I was doing an internship at a tour operator in
Seattle, the Rain Capital of the USA located on the shores of Puget Sound. It's a great city with almost daily beautiful sunrises and sunsets and not really that much rain at all! The snow-capped North Cascades to the East, the Olympic Peninsula with its unique rain forest to the West, the Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument and the Mount Rainier National Park to the South and the tranquile San Juan Islands and exciting Vancouver to the North; what better destination one could

I am still figuring out though what I am really looking for in life.
My goal is a life filled with PEACE, LOVE, HAPPINESS, JOY and
I wish everyone of you the same, my friends, may you have a great year
