Originally from England, I lived abroad for many years, mostly in Middle Eastern countries. I discovered Germany whilst on holiday about ten years ago and immediately fell for the diversity of the people, the landscape, the alcoholic beverages, the language, and even the food.
In 2011 I secured a job in a city called Essen in the industrial Ruhr Region. It was daunting as I was only able to utter about five words in German, but exciting all the same. Early in 2014 during a weekend drive-around, I stumbled across the Mosel Region and have never looked back. I still work periodically overseas, but the Mosel is where I call home.
I created this site for people who have an interest – either physically, emotionally, mentally or spiritually – in this stunning area. I know there are plenty of other resources available but most are geared solely towards tourism or wine, and few are in English. I am aiming to redress the balance a little by offering interesting bits and pieces which hopefully will appeal to visitors, residents, and dreamers alike, no matter what nationality they are.
