About Me

cycling, baking, eating, dancing. repeat.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

On my trip across Europe I had loads of interesting, funny and wonderful experiences. Every host and couch was different, but that is what I liked. You never get bored and sometimes it was like living together just from the first moment. It was awesome and i hope to make lots of good experiences in the future.


I'm in love with vinyl records and the photography with old analogue cameras. I love to search for new music in a cozy record store or just get some tips from other people. If i'm not listening to music, I mostly have my camera in my hand and take pictures. Cooking is something I really like to do for other people.
If the weather is fine i enjoy cruising with my longboard across the city and to some skating spots.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music is very important to me. I like some German, mostly old fashioned Hip Hop, like Main Concept, Stieber Twins, Torch, La Familia, STF, Fiva & Dj Radrum, Freundeskreis und die FK Clique, Sir Serch, Funkviertel, Huss & Hodn, Damion Davis, Team Avantgarde
over some independent/conscious english and french rap like CunninLynguists, Atmosphere, Brother Ali, Blu & Exile, madlib, RJD2, Immortal Technique, Buck65, Noah23, Sage Francis, IAM, Hocus Pocus
and end up with some guitar, singer songwriter and producer stuff like Portishead, Monta, Kings of convenience, four tet, hymies basement, john frusciante, the whitest boy alive, bon iver, Elliot Smith, Gisbert zu Knyphausen, Mumford & Sons, Bonobo, ...
"the beauty lies in the ears of the beholder"

krabat, momo, jim knopf, everything is illuminated, extremly loud and incredibly close, after dark, kafka on the shore, the wind up bird...

independent films of people, with a great vision or heavy thoughts and good quotes, like Boy A, Black Baloon, You Me and Everyone We Know, Eagle vs Shark, The Go-Getter, Once, Dogville

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Actually its the thing about hitchhiking. Many people told me about this as a good way to move around and get to know a lot of new people. Then sometime ago I thought about trying it by myself and it worked quite good. Now I'm trying to hitch the whole trip across europe and it is amazing that if you let life guide you a little and have the hope and willingness to get somewhere, it works! Give people a smile and they take you with them and answer with a interesting story. Last trip to Prague we hitched with 3 people from Berlin with a lot of stuff and got there with only one lift.
