Everyday, if they want as I live in the same place.
I was born in Vientiane, Laos in 1975. When I was 4 years old, my family flew, in order of the ongoing ' secret war' with me to Germany, where I grew up.
In 2013, I decided to move back to Laos to get not only a better understanding, but also a true feeling, of what Lao living, the culture and its tradition really mean to me, and which only got passed forward to me more in theorie and verbally, than practically. Working as a German tourleader, helps me a lot to get closer and deeper into the Lao and Southeast Asian (buddhistic) culture, starting with my local tour guides and drivers who company and support me throughout my tourings in Bangkok, Laos and Cambodia, and who tell me a lot about their country, history and people. My curiosity for the world seems endlessly. Especially, when it comes to spirituality, world creation and mythology.
While Laos has its international focus on education and sustaining. I realized how much I have learnt already (still and always will) and how much knowledge Lao farmer, especially folks and groups from the mountain and forest have, about plants and wildlife, water and stones. They still have amazing ancient wisdom within. Something so essential, that it needs to be preserved well.
My home is directly at the ' Phou Phueng' mountain and forest. I live with and among the mountain ethnic group of the Khmu people. We have a beautiful and untouched waterfall behind our small village and big gardens with all kinds of fruits and vegetables. My place is the home of thousands mangos and has two ponds, where you can fish with the neighbor kids who love to hang out in the water during the hot season.
