“Always stay curious about new things and keep your imagination awake.”


We asked, you answered.

How would you describe yourself?

40 years old, white, cat person, female, loves travelling, nature, horse owner, from Germany with foreign roots, works in the communication industry

Imagine you are 72, 80 or even 99 years old: How and with whom do you live together?

With my partner and many cats in a finca where the sun shines warmly all year round

Who are the most important people in your life and how do you spend time with them?

My partner and the cats I live with

What is your sex and love life like in the future?

On a whim

How do you manage to stay mentally and physically fit?

I’m outdoors a lot, surfing and hiking, and I’m always curious about new things

How do you afford everyday life in the future?

Pension, savings and smaller jobs

In the future, what do you get up for in the morning?

For another wonderful day with my loved ones

If you had to tell a young friend about all the things you’ve done right while ageing and would thus recommend to them… What would they be?

Be content and careful with yourself at any age, always stay curious about new things and keep your imagination awake.
