Background Information

I was born at th end of WW1, grew up and studied in Vienna, MSc in '39, made my pilots license in '35 in Berlin. Worked as an airline pilot in Indonesia before WW2, spent time in Turkey, returned to Vienna for a brief while after the big war. Then moved to Rome for three years, traching Phrsics at  a small college and doiung some engeenering projects.

Eventually, I moved to London where I ended up selling bridal and cocktail dresses adter a short career as a car jockey in a London garage. Almost by accident I ended up in Mintreal, Canada. All these events happened by accident. An opportunity presented itself and I grabbed it. Essentially, I was searching for an occupation that I might like enough to stick to for the rest of my life. I was a photographer, a nightclob operator, a chief accountant in a shoe manufacuring plant in Newfoundland, a partner in a buscompany, a licensed driving instructor, a travel journalist and finally for the last 40 years I was in the tracvel and tourism industry and had my own, very successful and respevted travel agenvy. I am still active in this field but have taken to write a book lately. It is called Sraying young for Life and was published in October 2007. Ir is available at amazon.com. Now I am writinf my second bok. As they say, there's never a dull moment. By the way, about six years ago I lost most of my eyesight and am now legally blind but have learned to ignore this as mucgh as possible. Life goes on. (there might be a gew typos I missed).

I met a number of most interesting people, had lunch woth the Dalai Lama and other peace Nobel Laurates like Arch Bishop Desmond Tutu, Dr. Oscaer Aiias, the prsident of Costa Rica. I met Clement Artrtle, the them prpme minister of England. I also met a tripler murderer, a famous train robber, a couple of billionaires and tons of regular people of all nationalities and religions. Everuine of them contribuiyed another morsel to my experiences. Along the way I also picked up a half a dozen lanfuafes and a degree or two. Again, most of these trhings were not planned, they just happened.

Needless to say, I had my share of bloopers, made colossal mistakes because I was too smaret for my own good but, isn't this what life is all about? My lovely wife Gisela of 56 years pased away last November. I have two lovely daughters, seven grandkids and a great-grandson. And here you have 90 years in a butshell.
