About Me

Hey ho!
My name is Benjamin and I am an open minded person who loves to travel and get to know new cultures! Like all on this platform I guess.
After finishing my Master`s degree in renewable energies and environmental technologies, I'm thinking about working abroad, either in Australia/New Zealand or in Asia (Japan, China, Singapore,...). If this is not possible in my field of study, I´m thinking about Work & Travel in Australia first and then doing volunteering work in water /wastewater management or sustainable urban design/development.
Always looking to meet nice, down to the earth and interesting people to learn from and have a good time with :-)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


after i made first experiences with cs in nicaragua, where friends hosted some people in our house, i´m now travelling around and looking for nice cs before i will return to germany the end of may where i hopefully will be able to host people.


i met a lot of nice people by using cs. come of them are really good friends now.
i really like cs and think it`s a great idea. unfortunately some people told me that there are people who use cs to find someone to have sex with. that`s not the purpose of cs... the intention is to find nice and interesting people, share experiences and so on.
