About Me



I love travelling ever since I've been a baby ;-) Now that I have a permanent job and flat things are changing a little bit...but hopefully not too much!!


I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing. (Agatha Christie)

Wirklich reich ist, wer mehr Träume in seiner Seele hat als die Realität zerstören kann.

We all start as strangers.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I used to surf and participate in meetings, now I am able to host.


I met some very interesting people through couchsurfing and made some real friends. Also, as a student I wouldn't have had the chance to travel as much as I did without couchsurfing simply because it helps you to save money.

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: A long way down, Der Glanz in ihren Augen, Nokan-Die Kunst des Ausklangs, James Bond, Stein der Geduld, Rote Laterne, In schwarzer Haut, Invictus, The next three days, EatPrayLove, Zusammen ist man weniger allein...

Ich mag generell sehr gerne Action-Filme und bin da auch nicht besonders wählerisch, Hauptsache es kracht und explodiert. Liebesfilme finde ich auch super, da aber nur die guten ;-)
