To bring body, mind and soul into harmony through the techniques of yoga always inspires me again and again - it is a great pleasure for me to give other people access to it. To connect with nature, music and other bright souls is my great passion.

I love life as it is. Try to keep my ego small and live in mindfulness. I love my family and do a lot of endurance sports. Now I am looking forward to organizing this beautiful "Tour de Sqallija" with Sabine & John. We have been doing this all over Europe since 2003 and had great moments.

This tour is a "must"

what’s life about? Try to live in mindfulness and enjoy a great bike ride with friends in Sicily. That’s what we do on this tour. You can find the tour datas at the top of the page. The route is not difficult, but also not as easy as it looks. The first day is 125 km long and leads over hilly terrain to the north. The road condition is fine and is checked by Google Earth. On the second day we climb Mount Etna, where we will climb at 1900 m above sea level. On the third day we head south again to Pozzallo, where we will board the Virtu ferry in the evening. As a hotel we have chosen a small hiding place; it’s a “Agriturismo”. I am sure that you will like it. Arriving in Pozzallo we will take the ferry back to Malta.
