About Me

I'll be traveling for about 1 year from 20.06.2019, so please no requests for me to host you during that time period.

My name is Abel. I'm originally from Detroit, MI, but have been living in Munich, Germany for 37 yrs now and love it! I have seen much of this world and visited some exotic places like Mongolia and Antartica.

I'm traveling this time round because I think it's my last chance to while I'm still healthy. When I look at my ruck, I remember the good ol days when I wasn't traveling with a medicine cabinet. ;-)

My job in Germany was as a headhunter and I enjoyed it very much because I felt that I could help improve people's lives; and I don't only mean financially.

I hope to meet you personally and we can find out more about each other! Ciao.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Because world travelers need to stay at places that are inexpensive, and it's always nice to help others! This is the perfect place meet others and exchange stories, but mostly to help them out!

Music, Movies, and Books

I love documentaries. I'm stuck in the 80's (New Wave, like The Cure, Depeche Mode, Talking Heads, B-52s) and love to dance!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Hitchhiked and bused from Egypt to Munich, Germany. Going thru the Middle East and then from one end of Turkey to the other and back to Europe.

Took public transportation (Busses) from Alaska- Patagonia, Chile in 2019.
