A somewhat irregularly updated travel- and adventure blog featuring sim, on his tours up, down, & around the globe. Besides that, a place for some snapshots he has taken and considers worth sharing onto this very Internet due to its sometimes painful lack of quality pictures. But after all, it has been said, just a personal backup shared with humankind for the not all to unlikely case that all his colorful paper notebooks burst into flames one day. Just weird.

Some more randomly thrown-out pictures are to be found on this tumblr. Due to peer pressure, Simon cultivates accounts on facebook & twitter; He also does quite some CouchSurfing BeWelcome-ing (he’s published a paper concerning the issue), though on a more voluntarily basis, driven by the convictions that trusting a stranger does actually make the world a better place, one couch at a time. Plus, people say that he likes adventures and embraces uncertainty. Some even go as far as to claim that he has managed the very rare combination of mixing his passion with his professional life through becoming something like an alpine journalist. But who are they to judge. What he doesn’t quite understand though is the instance that he sometimes writes about himself in third person singular. Just weird.
work ‘n such
Yes he knows that. This site is in desperate need of a proper update. Since good thinks tend to take a while, and climbing conditions tend to be good those days, here some essentials while we wait:
- Simon earns a living by traveling to amazing places, meeting inspiring people and exploring exotic cultures. He earns a living by picturing all that and writing about his experiences. Sounds too good to be true, but its still true. You could call him a freelance travel writer, and he would like that.
- Simon is also an active contributor to the much-hyped social media ecosystem, where he can claim to have created some of the best-working pages in Austria (@bergwelten). He also worked for @redbull, which was good fun.
- His unique selling point would be the combination of creative writing, travel photography, acceptable mountaineering skills and proper understanding of all things digital.
