"Beginning of the 80s I discovered Burkhard Herbote with a report in the newspaper "Frankfurter Rundschau". He was introduced as a seldom species of international address bureau. By chance short time later I had the chance to meet him personally with a meeting of the German Pacific Society in St. Augustin. The Founder of the GPS Dr. Dr. Friedrich Steinbauer introduced us with each other. Immediately a creative and fruitful brain storming started, our thoughts where like a flowing river with a great sense of humour. His cosmo-political appearance changed to a special cosmopolitical with focus on the Pacific Region. State: Who holds all the strings in his hands, can patch quite a lot at ones stuff. And so consistently our contact remains a stimulating with each other."
