The Mundane Philosopher

Philosophy, Travel Photography and Independent Lifestyle for common people like you and me


Hello everyone! Hello fellow philosophers and travelers!

Welcome to The Mundane Philosopher – the blog from a mundane person like you and me.

Why would you read my blog? Let me just repeat my first blog entry briefly, I hope I can change it to a more interesting “about”:

I have worked, studied and lived on a longer-term basis in seven countries of the world, speaking more than six languages on a level which enables me to work in those languages (among others german, english, chinese, spanish, italian and portuguese – as well as a bit of french and japanese) and I also have built a business which I run while I am travelling and living wherever I like to live. And I am just at the beginning of my journey!

In short, I hope to share some of my thoughts of an independent life, my experiences and some insights into the places I have been and going to be, as well as interesting topics which come along the way with you.

Though I am also a mundane person like you and me, coming from a background of immigrants, I somehow could through sheer luck, fate and mostly through inspiration by other people and books, and a bit of self-created momentum, I have come along my independent path to a new active and self-determined lifestyle. Thanks to my parents, which supported me all times, maybe not so much financially but much more importantly mentally, I was able to go to all those go to those fascinating places in Europe, Asia, Latin America as well as North America to live, work, study and travel. There I was able to meet all those amazing people on my road of life influencing me in a way which became me.

These accounts of my life and my thoughts about everything may or may not be helpful to you, but this is for yourself to judge in the future to come. If the content and style of my blog appeals to you, please feel free to come and visit my blog again.
