Countries I’ve been to

Let me share a little list with you where I have been to and how did I get there.

By myself

Germany My home country where I live since I was born.
United States of America I worked and lived there for a year and got my pilots license in the meantime.

Tennessee I lived and worked there for almost one year after my apprenticeship in 2013. During that time I got my pilots license.

Also I returned in 2018 for the summer and flew as a tow pilot at Chilhowee Gliderport (92A) in Benton. Great thanks to Sarah and Jason for giving me my tow pilot endorsement and for let me having fun with their Pawnee!

Kentucky In December 2014 I returned to the States, this time to Kentucky. In Louisville I bought 90B and shipped her home to Celle, Germany.
New York During my year in Tennessee I got the chance to spend a couple of days exploring New York City with my mom.
Georgia Flying in and out of Atlanta, Georgia was and is my gateway to Tennessee.
Alabama During my flight training with Aviation Specialists Inc. at Collegedale Municipal Airport (KFGU), TN I routinely crossed into Alabama and landed at several smaller airfields.
Virginia I drove through these states on my way from Chattanooga, TN to New York City, NY.
Maryland
New Jersey
Illinois I came through these states on the trip to buy 90B when I flew into Chicago, IL and drove down to Louisville, KY.
Indiana
France By myself I’ve been to France just once on my trip to St. Auban and back. But before I’ve been there many times as a child with my family.
United Kingdom After having flown in to the Duxford Flying Legends Airshow as a child with my family, I returned in 90B to explore the country on my own. See British Isles 2019 tour.
Belgium While returning from the British Isles 2019 tour I made a stopover in Brussels to meet Lady Bush Pilot.
Netherlands Just a quick fuel stop on my way to the British Isles. But definitely not the last!
Poland Did at weekend trip to visit the concentration camp memorial in Oswiecim with Tim. See Weekend in Auschwitz

With my family

France Most of our family holidays we spend in the French Alps. We either supported my father to go soaring and went skiing there.
Austria Though we went skiing in France in the very early years of my life, we later moved on to the Austrian Alps.
Italia In 1998 we did a tour around the Alps in our fathers DR400 and did a couple of days layover in northern Italy. I might be back one day…
Denmark First time I came to Denmark, we visited the Legoland in Billund. Later we returned a couple of times to the Baltic Sea Islands.
Sweden It was 2001 when we flew my fathers DR400 up the Lake Vettern in southern Sweden. And I have to admit, the Swedish landscape is one of the most beautiful ones in Europe!
Spain A couple years ago we did another flying adventure. Through France we flew down the Mediterranean coast of Spain until Mallaga where we spend a couple of days.
Morocco From our trip to Spain we took a day trip to Ceuta and Tanger. It was far away from everything I had known from Europe so far! And I was only 12…

Countries / regions I like to go to

Africa Still my ultimate goal is to fly my own plane around Africa one day…
Baltic Sea region I have ideas for flying around the Baltic Sea already…

Canada, Alaska The northern Rocky Mountains in Canada and Alaska are a place I like to go one time.
South America Flying through the Andes mountains like the majestic Condor, soaring over high peaks. I adventure I have to try! But if I do it, I will go down all the way to Ushuaia.
New Zealand New Zealand is so well-known for its beautiful scenery and hospitable people. Do you need more reasons?
