Originally from England, I lived for many years in the Middle East. However, I discovered Germany about six years ago and fell in love straight away with the diversity of the people, the landscape, the alcoholic beverages and even the language.
In 2011 I managed to find a job in a city called Essen in the industrial Ruhr Region here – not easy for someone who at the time could only utter about five words in German, and even now can only just manage the basics. Since then I made a concious effort to get to know my adoptive Homeland. It was in early 2014 on a weekend drive-around that I stumbled across the Mosel Region, and I have never looked back. Whilst my work is still in Essen, I consider the Mosel to be home and I return as often as I can.
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 out there but most are geared solely towards tourism or wine, and very 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 nationailty they are.
