About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Culturally motivated and open-minded student who wants to see as many places of the world as possible!

ABOUT ME

I'm a student of Oriental studies and English Studies. I love to travel and see other places all around the world.. As a rather solo traveller I know it's not always easy to find the right place at the right time to stay, hence, I'm willing to help out any surfers coming to my cities. I love Italian, Asian and Arabic food ... but love to taste, see, learn and experience new things. If I had to describe myself, I'd say I'm unsophisticated, uncomplicated and independant.

PHILOSOPHY

"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." ~ Maya Angelou

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

As I travel a lot I'd be thankful for any opportunity to stay with people at the places I travel to.. Regarding surfers, visiters or travellers coming to Germany, Duesseldorf or Cologne (or other cities around) I could ask you for any meal, breakfast or lunch or just a snack.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Only one. And for what it's worth: it was amazing!

Interests

International music, people, food ... Deeply interested in foreign politics (ME, Latin and African) and the beautiful diversity of cultures. Seeking to interconnect, improving and backing the progress of intercultural communication on a global basis.

Music, Movies, and Books

Hip Hop, Jazz, Blues, Urban, Soul, Dancehall, Latin and African beats! Funny movies, political, horror, drama ... actually I like to watch movies of all genres - as long as they are good! I read all kind of books, except those written by any desperate celebrities trying to make vainly money of something they are just bad at ...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Tough one: There are plenty of amazing things I've seen while I was travelling to the Middle East. Unfortunately there is no adventure story I can tell from personal experience ... I rode a camel in the Sahara, Southern of Morocco in Summer. I dived into stone-cold water of a deep well, accompanied by local inhabitants, human beings AND turtles. Is this adventurous? Well, to me it was. :)

Teach, Learn, Share

I speak six languages and I still can't get enough of it.. would love to learn new languages! I had the privilege to see places of the world that other human beings would love to go to as well, thus I can give any helpful advice regarding cultural issues because one should learn that each place has its own customs and traditions.
