About this Blog
FilmFanTravel.com is a Niche Travel Blog that helps budget-conscious film fans to plan their next film-inspired travel adventure.
On the blog, I write Film Reviews for contemporary films from 2000 onwards. In these posts, I am always writing about the film location of a specific movie or series.
In Destinations, I provide travel tips for cities and countries that have either featured as a film location or are mentioned as a setting in a film or series. On all of my blogs, my posts are based on my own travel experiences.
Finally, in Film People I write about lesser known stories and connections of various film stars as well as about my own interviews with film stars and other people from the industry.
About my work
Life as a Freelancer since 2015
From 2011 to 2015, I lived and worked in London, UK for three and a half years. Since early 2015 I am back in Germany and run my own business as a self-employed Travel Writer/Blogger, Translator and Proofreader.
Freelance work comes with the great advantage of being able to work anywhere in the world – I just need my laptop and a Internet connection. That’s why I was able to travel a lot since the beginning of 2015.
When in Germany, I work from my home base in Bremen, which is the second largest city in Northern Germany.
Tour Guide in Bremen since 2018
I have always had a passion for history, so in 2018 I decided to make this hobby into a profession by becoming a professional tour guide in Bremen.
Whenever I am not travelling myself, I love to showing guests around Bremen and sharing the lesser known stories with them.

Tourism Master degree in Sweden 2019/2020
In late August 2019, I moved to Sweden to live and study here for one year. Exactly ten years after I completed my Bachelor’s degree in “Multilingual Communication” (Translation and Business) at the University of Applied Sciences, Cologne back in 2009, I decided it was time to go back to university.
Since I have worked in tourism for a while now and I am really passionate about everything related to travel and tourism, I opted to study for a one-year Master’s degree in “Tourism Destination Development” at the University of Dalarna, Sweden.
Currently, I am writing on my Master Thesis about ancestral tourism to Germany by US American travellers. If all goes according to plan, I will complete my Master’s degree in June 2020.
