Travelers By Nature
Travel has always been part of our story.
For years, my dad Horst worked as a busy global executive. My brother and I loved tagging along on his business trips. While he was stuck in meetings, we ducked in and out of art galleries, traipsed through fields and forests, and savored cultures and flavors we’d never encountered before. Those early trips offered a taste of possibility.
When your world is turned upside-down.
In 2011, our lives were thrown into chaos. At just 25, I discovered a malignant tumor in my leg the size of a grapefruit. Faced with a cancer diagnosis, I was forced to put a thriving performing arts career on hold. My father stepped away from the corporate life that had consumed him to focus on his relationship with us, and to rekindle an inner life that had suffered for his career.
