My Adventure


I followed the footsteps of my grandmother’s journey as a German refugee after the second world war, running from Unieradz, Poland (formerly Neurese, Germany) to the southern most tip of Europe (mainland), Tarifa in Spain – 3,850 kilometers!

This journey and challenge was dedicated to refugees worldwide. Everyone deserves to have a place they can call home.

Every day is an adventure no matter the circumstances. Amazing experiences and many lessons learned. I love sharing my journey and inspiring others to step outside of their comfort zones and be greater than they ever thought possible, in all areas of life.
