About Me

CURRENT MISSION

*.*

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...

PHILOSOPHY

When in Rome...
