Petrichor – The pleasant smell that frequently accompanies the first rain after a long period of warm, dry weather.






Hi my name is Gunnar. Welcome to my Blog “Petrichor and the Universe.”



I was born in Germany but call Australia home since I came here as a backpacker many years ago.  

I am a big fan of nature, road trips, camping, photography, hiking & bush walking, science, spirituality & philosophy, documentaries and a good video game. I traveled around Australia twice, visited many different countries all over the world and lived in different places and cultures and the most important thing I’ve learned is: “Be wary of any belief or ideology that promotes division between you and your fellow human beings.”

Fun fact: I’m one of the remaining 100 candidates chosen for a one way trip to Mars. The Dutch-based Mars One project is a private consortium that plans to populate Mars with humans in 2031. No it’s not a joke. 🙂

This blog is about my travels & journeys.

If you like to get in contact with me email me with any inquiries here via the contact form. Your questions and comments are important to me. Please don’t forget to provide your email address if you’d like to receive a reply. Of course will I respect your privacy and won’t share any of your informations with others.

Thanks for stopping by. 🙂
