'I grew up in a small village called Fulenbach, located in the canton Solothurn. A few weeks before we left, I have finished my master in German and English at the University of Berne as well as the pedagogical education to teach these subjects in high schools. 

 

As a welcome change from everyday life, I like playing the flute as well as the piccolo. It is due to that hobby I got to know Michi; we met when playing in the same orchestra. A further hobby of mine is doing sports. What I like best and do most often is jogging, cycling and hiking. In winter I do skiing and snowboarding with great excitement.'

'I grew up close to Basel, in Allschwil. After my apprenticeship as an automation technician, I started studying mechatronics in a trinational program. I graduated directly before we started this trip.

 

With the same enthusiasm as I travel, I do music and sports; so I play the French horn in various bands and often go jogging or cycling. Moreover, I like being in the mountains; in winter I ski, in summer I like trekking.

 

Before I went to university, I already did a cycling trip; in eight months, I pedalled from Basel to Hanoi together with Lukas (www.veloabenteuer.ch).'
