About Me


I'd like to be under the sea - In an octopus' garden in the shade


We have seen a bit of the world and are eager to see all of it. We would like to get to know people from all kinds of cultures.


Live and let live. Freedom and self-fulfillment.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Hosting and surfing.


Very positiv. Even though not all the changes in the last few years have been well thought through, CS is still the best way to bring the world to your living room and get around on a budget. We are very thankful for the experiences we made and the people we met through CS!


Benni: Music (listening and singing when alone), Movies (watching), Books (reading), Sports (watching and doing), Food (eating and cooking), Gardening, to fret about politics, politicians and the economy. I like hiking and wildlife. I would like to live on a boat (but Anja won't let me). Expansion of consciousness. But my biggest hobby is being lazy.

Anja: Photography, scrawling and gazing at oil paintings.
Snowboarding, cycling. Drinking a good cup of tea.

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach: I can explain the political system of germany and teach you a little latin maybe while I show you how to put herbs in a paper.
Learn: I want to learn how to sail and fish, so I can live on a boat. In general I would like to develop some wilderness skills.
