Introduction
Hello and welcome,

it's a thrilling experience to be here at G+ and come in contact with so many different people all over the world. It's inspiring (and sometimes funny) to read your thoughts and opinions, adore your pictures and share your emotions.

Quick Info:
Freelancer, photographer, sailor and gadget-lover

Co-Curator of: +Book Lovers
Books are always with you? Are you a books addict? Have you photos of books, portraits with books, architecture with books, your prefered book? The last book you're reading? Everything concerning the books you can share with us.

Interests:
  • photography (people, sailing, events, landscapes, natur, architecture)
  • sailing (Baltic See, North, Sea, IJsselmeer, regatta)
  • books (almost everything: Literature, Thriller, SF and Fantasy, Biographies, Science, Education, Psychologie...)
  • tech and gadgets
  • new experiences 
  • communication (theory and praxis)
  • politics
  • social media
  • science
  • surfing (the net)
  • gaming (Adventures)

  • music (Bach - Die Ärzte, playing accordion)
Ten things you don’t know about me:
  • I put my left shoe on first
  • I sleep with a “security-pillow” 
  • I usually wear earrings and some kind of scarf 
  • I always take a book and a cam with me – just in case…
  • I love electronic gadgets and travel with lots of different power chargers for my cams, my Kindle, my Smartphone, my tablet and my Netbook (and with my pillow ;-) - hope they will invent a universal charger and long lasting batteries soon…
  • I sailed to London, Helsinki, Mariehamn, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Bergen, Hamburg, Amsterdam and nearly to Haparanda
  • I’m a night owl and a “morning-zombie”
  • I've read “The Lord of the Rings” about 15 times and watched the movie about 10 times 
  • I love riddles, brain teasers, puzzles and games
  • I’m the mother of procrastination (but I always hit the deadline)

Work:
I try to help students getting a BA and tax-payers to avoid taxes. I'm instructor for bookkeeping-software and write teaching material.

Languages:
German (mother tongue) and English (limited)

Thank you for comments and plusses - that was my first tiny planet. I used a 360° photo sphere taken with my Nexus 4 and learned that it's really easy to create this in photoshop:
1. Make the image square (without constraining the proportions)
2. Turn the photo upside down
3. Apply the polar coordinates filter
That's about it :-)!
