It happened in the seventies
A Memoir of Love, Colliding Worlds and a House on a Hill
Born and educated in Germany, Dieter studied electro technique, graduated as the youngest ever with a Master’s degree, and had his first business at age 21. A few years later, he realised there is more to life than just earning a living. In 1974 Dieter and Giselle left Germany on a two-and-a-half-year discovery tour. During that time, they lived and travelled throughout Australia in a panel van and wrote stories about their travels for German magazines.

Dieter is the author of Do You Believe in You and co-author of 2 books with his artist wife Giselle. Dieter has published hundreds of holistic lifestyle philosophy articles and lives by his motto.

It happened in the seventies.
From the author of Do You Believe in You, an intriguing and personal journey of deconstructing a former life and discovering a new one in the 1970s.
Dieter had studied hard and had a business with 21, but felt in need of change by age 23, planning a two-year discovery tour in Australia.
Giselle and Dieter met on Christmas Day, they didn’t want a relationship, but the universe had other ideas.
Leaving their former life behind, they arrived in Sydney in September 1974, inspired to seek opportunities, take pictures, and write a book about Australia.
They lived in a panelvan and travelled for 2 years, facing the unknown and overcoming danger. Together they planned their next steps, their ideal lifestyle, owning a house, living self-sufficient with enough income from their future organic garden, photography, silver craft, art and other creative pursuits.
Devastating news arrived from Hamburg – dreams and reality collided.
Would they achieve their goals? Could they return to Australia?
