I am a German and Irish national. From a young age, I’ve been curious about travelling and lived in several countries. As a migration researcher, I work on topics related to transnational mobilities, inequalities, young people and international higher education. What makes Migrantour special to me are the personal stories of every intercultural companion that went into shaping this particular walking tour. Lombok is actually where I live with my two young children and my partner, so I’m very familiar with this neighbourhood. But walking together with the tour participants continuously opens up new perspectives for me, also on some of the societal challenges we discuss.
