About Me

I don't agree with how couchsurfing has evolved over the years and how its now becoming another soulless commercial machine. I'm staying because I accidentally paid for it and to still connect with people here. I think we should make a collective move to other platforms with the original spirit though :)

Couchsurfing with locals is one of the best ways of travelling. Meeting people and getting insights into their lives is the most authentic experience you can get in a new place. Strangers opening their homes to other strangers and sharing a bit of their life continue to amaze me and I hope I can give back some of that hospitality one day. But even an exchange of hosting and surfing can be beneficial and insightful to everyone as we learn from each other's perspectives.

I appreciate honest and authentic exchanges between surfers and hosts. We are here to connect. Respect each other's space and time. Whatever that means. Listen and speak with care.

I want to learn about life, this universe and everything else. I like to put myself in new situations to gain new experiences. We need each other to grow, to help understand ourselves and our lives better. I'm very grateful for everybody I've met so far, I always learn from experiences with others. In turn, I try to do the same for people around me.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To meet people and see places I haven't seen before. To open my mind more everywhere I go. To make friends in different places. To create a network of acquaintances who can help and support each other in a sometimes wretched world.


To love, love fiercely, share joy, share beauty - share a book, share poetry, share music.


I enjoy the city life that never sleeps, taking long walks and finding great spots. Good conversations with friends, long nights out, wine, bars with an atmosphere.
I feel at home in the calmness of nature and the mountains and lakes and forests. Smell of summer nights and early mornings, wind and rain, clouds, water and starry skies. Can't really stand the midday sun, but I've learned to love the summer heat.
Love swimming, warm or cold water, and saunaing. Love dancing and moving, yoga and jujitsu.
Love everything to do with words, poetry and writing.
I'm really interested in languages, and want to learn another one every time I meet someone who speaks theirs nicely. Also fascinated by listening to how careful and thoughtful people express themselves well through the limits of language. This sentence is not a fine example of what I mean :D
I love going to concerts and festivals, and experiencing what different types of music can do for the mind. This is when I feel most alive. My greatest passion and where I can nerd out the most. I can most likely give you recommendations for stuff you'll like for sure.

Music expresses what cannot be put into words but what cannot remain unsaid.
It's better in German:
Musik drückt aus was nicht gesagt werden kann und worüber zu schweigen unmöglich ist.
Victor Hugo

Music, Movies, and Books

I listen to everything I find: ambient, psychedelic, prog, post rock, metal, electronic, techno, trance, experimental and alternative stuff, jazz and many other things, and of course old school classics. The world of music is entirely puzzling and fascinating to me...
Brian Eno, Mogwai, Devendra Banhart, Radiohead, Grimes, Bo Hansson, Aphex Twin, David Bowie, Sigur Ros, King Crimson, Tool, Son Lux, AltJ, Jon Hopkins, Tipper, Carbon Based Lifeforms, Opeth, Dead Can Dance, Nick Cave, Deafheaven, Ichiro Shimoda....

I also love reading, The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran is holy scripture to me.

Currently reading Ivanhoe by Walter Scott, How to change your mind by Michael Pollan, Steppenwolf by Hesse and I need to get into Ralph Waldo Emerson.

My favourite movie is Wings of Desire by Wim Wenders, I loved C'mon, C'mon by Mike Mills and lately I watched The Velvet Queen and cried.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I exist !

Teach, Learn, Share

I can share some of my yoga practice, and the poetry I bring with me :) it's what I usually do in the morning so I can share that with anyone - even though I don't seem very sociable in the morning, these are my favourite things to do next to a cup of tea or coffee :)
I can also share my endless love for music and give recommendations for bands and albums you'll like. I'll make it my mission to find out what kind of music could enrich your life :D in turn I also listen to what I'm recommended.
I can teach bits of the languages I know, I've studied language so I have some understanding of them. Or just swearwords.
I know how to make vegan pancakes, you just have to ask for them.
I'd like to learn about anything you know about, i'm interested in pretty much everything.
