My name is Julia, aka “Jules” The nickname was given to me in Australia while living in Melbourne for a few years, fell in love with it and kept it. I was born near Frankfurt in the center of Germany and I wasn’t much involved in the outdoor activities at all at that time. While on a trip to New Zealand in 2006, that concept changed. I started getting involved; hiking and camping are amazing and just being close to nature and mountains is such a beautiful feeling.
I moved to Munich, Germany in 2011 because i wanted to be close to the Alps and do all the fun outdoor activities whenever I wanted. I work as a freelance Senior Art Director in advertising & design which gives me the opportunity to re-arrange my work schedule to have more free time and do the things I enjoy most (outdoor sports). This move allowed me to follow my passion and makes it possible for my marathon training.
I have done a few long hiking trips in Tasmania Australia, Canada, Iceland etc. and I’m planing on doing the same in Norway this coming summer.
