studying and travelling
I am 32 years old and studied Cultural Anthropology, Intercultural Communication and Ethnomusicology in Munich.
My mission is to live life as intensively as possible. I believe letting people from all over the world into one's life and thus getting to know something about different ways of life makes everything so much more intense. And I also believe that trying to focus on experiencing the moment and to enjoy and appreciate also and especially little things in life, can bring you the closest to real happiness.
Since I am specializing in Near/Middle East Studies and Ethnomusicology, I am also always very interested in learning more about these areas.
But I am not only a person who seeks for travel experiences and intellectual challenges...I also love to go out and have fun...dancing, hanging out with friends, I also enjoy peace and quiet, hiking and taking in fantastic nature sceneries. I am totally addicted to both mountains and the ocean.
Live for the moment. The future will come anyway. ;-)
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Living in Alaska for half a year. That was such a great experience. To get to the city where I wanted to stay for a longer period of time I took the road from Fairbanks to Anchorage, with a stop in Atkin, Canada and then from Skagway I took a wonderful fairy trip through the fjords of Southeast Alaska to Juneau. Wow, the landscape is amazing! Don´t find the fitting words to describe the scenery.
Traveling Syria on my own. It was incredible, how close disasters and wonderful friendships followed one another.
Taking the Nordlandsbana train from Trondheim, Norway to Bodö in the middle of the night and seeing the sun rise above an seemingly endless range of trees.
