The Queer Nomad 163
 
London
Freelance translator, writer, traveller. Born and bred in Germany, Londoner by heart... I love anything related to culture, from food to languages, history to theatre. I have a thing for slightly crazy island nations (the UK and Ireland, Japan, Taiwan...), North East Asia, Eastern Europe and the Middle East.
