About this blog

Who writes here?

I work as a journalist, sometimes with data and a coding console, sometimes with a camera and notepad. I have been a freelance journalist since the beginning of 2024, mainly in the data team of public broadcaster MDR (click for my profile). From time to time I will be on the road as a reporter for the Süddeutsche Zeitung and Stern.

Before that, I worked full time as an editor for the Süddeutsche Zeitung. You can find my articles from this time here.

I studied online journalism and development studies. Besides, I worked for various newspapers, lived in Kenya, France, Israel and Ghana for several months and taught myself programming in R and photography.

What is this blog about?

This blog is my private pleasure, it is a platform for stories about traveling. The German name „Fernweh nach Welt“ is not easy to translate, but it means something like wanderlust for the world or longing for the world. Most of the articles you will find here are in German, but there will also be lots of pictures and occasionally some English content.
