My name is Heiner Zimmer,
I'm from Germany and was born in 1954 in Bitburg in the Eifel. The beauty of nature has always fascinated me in my childhood. In my school days, I often went on vacation - packed with a tent, going on cycling tours or backpacking.
When I was 20 years old, i took over the art shop of my parents, which I led as an art gallery for 38 years.
I got married and have two children, who are grown up now and gifted me with two grandchildren.
My parents and I have been travelling quite al lot over the years. During that time, I've always had this great dream of me going on a long and exciting "Open End" trip around the world. This dream has been lingering inside me for a very long time.
Now I'm living my dream!
I have left the "rat race" to give Life a chance to evolve. My goal is to become more open for every upcoming day - no matter how they develop - without time pressure and with very conscious perception for what may come.
"I want to live like a river that flows, accompanied by the surprise of its own development."
The theme of my trip is "World - Bike - Tour for Water"
