About Me


Meeting nice folks & seeing beautiful nature


I like to laugh a lot and I enjoy making folks laugh. I'm an academic tech nerd but I am also loving to spend time outdoors, meet with my mostly not nerdy friends, socialize, party hard, just chill out, go for a walk, ...

If I have to choose between honesty and politeness I almost always say what's in my mind. This probably costs some phony friends but the people who are really important to me value it. Almost always :-)

I like to fix things, from cars/motorcycles to household stuff or anything else which is more or less technical and doesn't behave like it's supposed to do.

I like to travel a lot, especially when the weather at home is bad. Locations which are scenic and have some sport activity to offer (hiking, bike, rock climbing, slackline, ...) are preferred. Especially when the day ends with some nice people, a campfire and some beer.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Since I travel alone in a campervan I'd give a ride to decent folks who would like to enjoy the more remote parts of scandinavia. Like camping, hiking and so forth...


Almost none. Since I lived in a rural area in Germany I had one couch request in three years which I had to decline because I was travelling myself...

I wanted to try couchsurfing on my last longer trip in australia but the number of couches in the red center was more than limited.

At the moment I carry my own couch (campervan) so I'll just try to meet folks for a drink, walk, outdoor activity, ...


Rock climbing, scuba diving, bicycle riding, hiking, outdoor activities, more or less all tech related stuff (computers, cars, motorcycles, ...), hanging out, chilling.

Music, Movies, and Books

TV Series: Breaking Bad, Dexter, Heroes, Community, IT Crowd, Big Bang Theory (at least the early seasons), Californication, 24, The Wire, Babylon 5, ...

I don't read much books because I spend my working hours reading a computer screen. After that I'm fed up with reading... Since I started travelling I read some Bukowski Novels (post office, women, factotum) and "a song of fire and ice" (about 3/4 right now)
