About Me

I am open-minded, curious, straightforward, welcoming and slightly introvert. And, yeah, a CS newbie.
One-on-one, I open up easily when there is sympathy.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Time to try something new, meet new people - from far away or nearby. Excel, enjoy, share, have fun, exchange.

Es wäre z. B. klasse auch auf Geschäftsreise nette Menschen zu treffen 😊.


So much to do, see, learn, love, laugh, understand... 😊
Enjoy live (dance, cook, eat, drink, bike, rock, sleep, meet).

And many others: Organ, Old Music (medival, vocal), Psy Trance, Electro Swing, Soul, Lounge, World, EBM, Ambient, chill out... - OK, you get it.
Book: Bill Bryson - A Short History of Nearly Everything.
Movie: Ein Mann namens Ove, Er ist wieder da.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I jumped Nevis Highwire bungy, travelling New Zealand by tiny campervan.
As a youngster, a friend and I biked from Belgium to France (Bordeaux) and from Switzerland to Spain the next year, camping.

Teach, Learn, Share

I am interested in many things, so likely we may have things to exchange upon.
E.g. TED talks amaze me. Try
Srikumar Rao: Plug into your hard-wired happiness,

What I Can Share with Hosts

Cook with you or for you.
Help you learn French - or German, of course. Have deep conversations.
