About Me




I like languages, foreign countries and people.
I prefer the local dish over McDonalds, the local drink over a coke, to learn a few words instead of deserting to "thanks" and the local music over an ipod.
The rest you might have to find out for yourself, whether it be in Berlin or Beirut...

I will be leaving Berlin in September, so wont be able to host anyone from then on...


When in Rome...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Some great ones - I met some really nice people who made my travels much more memorable.


Hanging out with friends, family, learning new languages, seeing new places, meeting new people, card games, yoga, eating, tea, post cards, swimming, music, jokes, books, nature and so on.
