About Me

Hey there! I'm Benny, 27 years old and still going to school. I've studied social anthropology and political science and I am now doing a post-grad journalism degree. I've always loved reading and photographing and I am now learning how "to not write bad" (by reading that book). Let's get in touch!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

To get to know like-minded locals. I had an overall positive experience with hosts and surfers in the past and I am impressed by how active the community is.

Sometimes one just needs a free bed so if you just want to crash my couch in Vienna for a night, I am most probably fine with that.


Different cultures, journalism and photography obviously, outside adventures

Music, Movies & Books

Wim Wenders, Emir Kusturica, Woody Allen ... good political feature films and documentaries. Good reportage books. Rather non-fiction than fiction. Musical omnivore.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Crossing the red sea by dhow with a group of Somali, Afar and Yemeni people after being in Somaliland, the peaceful part of Somalia. It took twenty hours and I fell asleep on a swinging wooden boat looking at the stars and listening to the waves of the sea while the captain behind me was operating the wheel with his feet.
