About Me

Hey there,

my name is Ben and I just undergraduated from my studies in Jena. Now I live in Marburg in order to continue my studies in Sociology and social research.
I love traveling and exploring the world and last but not least myself out there!
Basically I am a helpful, tolerant, outgoing and funny guy that always tries to lead an active and conscious life!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

During my travels in Australia, Europe or Canada I was blessed with getting a lot of help by awesome people that I had the chance to meet!
I would like to give something back by inviting backpackers while I cannot travel myself!
Couchsurfing is a great network and easy possibility to keep the state of mind of traveling and being open-minded - and also to escape from everyday-life once in a while ...


Due to my studies I love meeting people and get to know them. I like discussions about important, current and urgent questions our society is facing!
Also I love sports and music. I practice Jiu-Jitsu and work out as much as possible since it gives me the possibility to relax.
If I don't do sports I spend time with friends and play the guitar - music always has been a huge part of my life ...
