About Me

I'm a calm, humorous and freedom-loving man. I love cooking, to listen to good music and to make music. I play the ukulele and I'm taking accordion lessons since three years, enjoying it very much. I'm a freelancer in the field of theater. I act, I puppeteer, I clown. I live my profession. And because this often needs a lot of my energy, I need my travelling times every year to recover and fill up my sources. When I was younger, my big passion was hitchkiking. And I travelled through quit a few countries in europe and the americas that way. These days my big passion became more and more hiking, it just slows me down so niceley.
Here in Bremen, I share a four room flat with my girlfriend. And I have a seventeen year old daughter who switches homes inbetween our and her mother's flat every two weeks.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm interested in people and different cultures from all around the world. What a great opertunity to get in touch. I also like to travel economically. When travelling I sleep always better in a tent, a hammock, or on somebodys couch than in a anonymous hotel. That just feels more real to me. I like sharing and I like communities. I grew up on an old castle with my familiy and we had lot's of space and many many times also we had a lot of guests to fill up that space, to share it. So from my very early days I'm used to be with many people and I still like it a lot.


When I'm with people I like to go for walks and to cook together. When staying in cities, I also love to go to concerts, the movie theater, to see theater plays, to visit museums and to go out dancing.
The country sides I love to discover by foot!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

My best friend and I had a foot race in the old greek olympic stadium of Delphi all disrobed and barefooted.
This was offcours after the opening hours. We really felt like old greek heroes, it was so amazing -

Teach, Learn, Share

I don't know if I'm a good teacher. But I do like to share my knowledge with intressted people. I'm not a big fan of "good advises" and I hate it when I catch myself giving them. There are so many right ways to learn and to develope. And the good thing is, that it hopefully never stops, the striving and developing.
