About Me

Haven't been active on CS for a while. So: sorry for all the non-answered requests!!!

I love making the experience of being showed around in foreign places and would also love to show more people where and how I live. I think I'm a perfect host for people who are open, communicative, like to go out for dancing or having a beer and are interested in music generally. I like people with humour who don't take themselves too serious. Beside going out I can also be someone who loves to hang out with a bottle of wine, to talk and to listen to music a whole night. It depends on what you prefer! I love to talk about language, music, cultural differences and things we have in common and i'm always interested in exploring other cultures. It's also always great to discover new styles of music i didn't know before.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


learning from other culture's values and bringing them home.


Mostly awesome ones! I hosted several surfers in Dortmund but try to be available also in Berlin again. Most times I hosted instead of surfing and hope to surf more. I alwayes liked it to see my couchsurfers again in their city what happened quite often. Now I have a network of couchsurfing-friends all over Europe and even in some countries of the world.


-definitely music:

i'm playing guitar and listen mostly to punk, hardcore, old emo and electronic music, especially minimal/electro/electronic pop (but always open towards new sounds).

I also love to visit clubs with local music at least one time on every trip. I really adore balkanic/oriental/turkish harmonies. They're a lot more emotional than the western ones and feelings are expressed a lot more authentic. Doesn't matter if it's folk or pop-/rock-music with a folk touch.

-clubbing, dancing, deejaying
-celebrating all night long with best friends by my side
-understanding the time, the reality, the political and social structures that sorround us
