About Me


Traveling with my dog through Brazil


Traveling makes me feel home wherever I am. I like to experience different life styles and perspectives and certainly meeting new people with different personalities and experiences of life.

After working as a marketing manager for many years in Europe I started my South American backpacker trip two years ago. I planned to come back to my old life after one year traveling but it was impossible as the journey changed my perspective of life.
After 1,5 year traveling I got stuck in Jericoacoara (Brazil) and was running a hostel.
Now I hit the road again.


Live your dream! Life is now!!!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I hosted backpackers when I was living in Europe. Now while I was traveling I was surfing other peoples couches in Buenos Aires & Rio.
It's a great experience to make friends with locals, learn about their culture and have a language interexchange.


I met so many interesting and generous people via cs.
It's great to have a connection in places where you are originally a stranger.


I love to travel, meeting new people, sharing experiences, hanging out with (new) friends, dancing, partying, cooking, art, cultural events of the day...

I'm interested in lots of different sport activities and my favorite once are kite-surfing, biking, surfing, horse-back-riding, wake-boarding, dancing, yoga, running, etc.
Jericoacoara offers most of my sport interests!

Music, Movies, and Books

While I'm traveling I like to listen to the traditional music of the country which I'm visiting.
Now while I'm in SA I like to listen to South American music like Forro, Salsa, Cumbia, Tango, Samba, Latin, etc.... it feels more authentic traveling and it's great to try the specifc dancing styles.

Movie wise:
I don't like trashy or bloodthirstily movies but upon of this I like all kind of movies. British humor is great!
