About Me


Berlin, baby!


Went to Berlin, worked there for a month, fell in love.
Left Berlin, went of to Canada, had a blast, came back to Germany 9 month later.
Started to study in Austria, didn't like it, quit.
Ended up with my first love and here I am - ready for some new chapters.


A guy in California once made me a gift of 500$ (there is a story behind that, but that's basically what he did) and told me something about Karma... it wasn't the money that convinced me, but what he said.
So I am convinced that smiling a lot, beeing nice to people and just asking and in return sharing and giving makes this world a lot more fun!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


"So far I surfed ... and I will be for a little bit longer. But when I get my first own couch, I'm gonna be a host! =)"

So I said ... now I have a couch and it get's about time to invite sb...


first experience in Canada with Karen, where I ended up living for a month and one in Port Angeles, Washington, where Lisa was Carls and my host!
...and some spontanious surfing, which is not related to "" ;)


meeting new people, friends, some TV-series, reading, sports(basketball,snowboarding,frisbee or whatever is fun), going out (not too much lately - can't wait for the summer!!)

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies which can change your way of thinking, same for books: Donnie Darko, Forrest Gump, Mr Nobody, Harold & Maude, Gran Torino, Blow
... but also comedy and action: Zombieland, KickAss, Watchmen, Lucky Number Slevin, Shoot'em Up, Crank
..and lots more I probably just can't think of right now.
A book which I recently read and love: 'matt ruff: fool on the hill'

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Standing on top of a mountain - a 360° view of the Rocky Mountains or the Alps - a snowboard attached to my feet... <3
I went to Norway many times when I was a child and the coast of Norway and Sweden in summer is pretty much my image of what paradise looks like.
