This is Jens (who usually avoids referring to himself in third person). An archaeologist based in Berlin who just happens to travel a bit here and there – for field work en route between Scandinavia and the Middle East, anywhere else just for the sake of travelling. Still not accepting he might a bit late for the ‘golden age’ of exploration, Jens sets out to journeys reaching remote destinations in pursuit of sights, sites, and answers at any given opportunity. He never leaves without journal and pencil, rarely is seen without his trusty dusty hat, and finds a good excuse for some well-crammed pipe with a view whenever necessary.

Random yet not necessarily useful facts about Jens:

1. He’s an enthusiastic hiker, climber, canoeist, and scuba diver.
2. He’s a connoisseur of historic travelogues.
3. He sometimes does sketches in pencil and watercolour.
4. He once was known as ‘Yunus’ among the Bedouins of southern Jordan.
5. He’s also called ‘Ilyas Bey’ in the dusty steppe of southeastern Anatolia.
