About Me


I want to see all the 7 new world wonders and many other places, to learn about other cultures and people's tradition.


I am from Germany, spent some time in UK and South Africa and now I am back in Germany studying for my Masters Degree. I love travelling, experiencing other cultures and learn from people. I am very open- minded and friendly, sometimes I talk too much. I like going out and try new things. I somehow hope to make a contribution to a better world, that is why I like to volunteer during my travels. I like to get off the beaten track and see the things not everyone gets to see. If you ever got a crazy idea I'm the right person to do it with you.


Stay far from timid, only make a move when your heart's in it and live by the phrase sky is the limit.

Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.
Apple quote, but I love it, because I am crazy enough to think I can change the world, so I will :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I hosted and surfed and it has always been great. I like to share different ideas and cultures with people and just learn something new.


Great so far. Meet as strangers, leave as friends.


- Travelling
- Ice skating
- World cuisine, I like to taste new food
- Dancing
- Flashmob, my newest discovered passion when we organised one in Birmingham and it was just so much fun
- I started making soap, if you're interested I can show you how or you can just take some soap with you

Music, Movies, and Books

Lord of the Rings is my favourite book and film but I also like to read all those really old books like Olver Twist, Huckelberry Finn and so on, because they are written in such a way that it can be quite a challenge.
Eat, Pray, Love I just loved the ideas about life in this movie.
Big Bang Theory
I listen to any kind of pop music and some other stuff too, as long as I can dance to it and I also listen to some Indian and African music, which I don't even understand.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Highest Bungee in the world.
Seen the Taj Mahal, Angkor and the Burj Khalifa.

Teach, Learn, Share

I would like to learn a bit of Hindi and Swahili or a few words of any other unusual language.
I can teach you how to dance Rock' n Roll and give some tips on places I have been to.
I like deep, meaningful conversations and I would definitely cook something with my guests.
