About Me


In an endless search...


Okay... A few things about me: I'm very interested in different opinions, I always try to understand them. And I like to share opinions at all. Interesting people! Open minded. Nature. Art. Post-apocalypse. Letters. Mechanical stuff. Huge rooms. Abandoned houses. Listen to good music with an old stereo. Dreams... I love people. And dislike them. Oh, and good parties! I was a Lego child. I like questions.
And I'm going my own way. (More or less. Finally more...)


I hardly dislike ignorance! I think that says all about my philosophy.

Easy said, but...:
"Live your dreams, don't dream your life. Life your live and not the one of anybody else. Find yourself and be yourself!"

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I like to meet interesting and open minded people. CS is a great platform for such people! I wan't to support it by hosting people. And I take the chance to stay on couchsurfers couches when I travel.
When you're at a new place, CS is one of the best ways to get in contact with locals and get to know the place.


I had the most experiences when I travelled through Russia. I met lots of good people by couchsurfing. People I still am in contact with.
Since I do couchsurfing, I also hosted several people.


Rock climbing, mounaineering, skiing, traveling, listen to music, cultures, art, design, empty landscapes, nature, people, crowded and calm places, people watching, cultures, talking to strangers, trying the extreme,...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Standing on the summit. Just snowy mountains as far as you can see. No humans. Only one close friend standing next to you. The blue sky above you. Small clouds. And an endless peace...

Teach, Learn, Share

Sport climbing and mountaineering of course. All about engineering in case you're interested. The languages I know. Or whatever comes up...

What I'd like to learn? Bring you're ideas! I love to try new things.
