About Me


About me? That's hard to say in a short text.
When I leave for a trip and say that I'll be back in seven weeks, I actually mean two or three years.
I guess a situation like this discribes quiet well, how I am: I change my plans day-by-day, I'm open for everything new that comes into my way and I live my life like I want to live it.
Maybe I don't do, what society expects me to do (school-uni-job-family-and-house) but I'm happy with my life and I think this is the only thing life is about. My heart found his place in Ghana, that's the only thing I know for sure. However, I won't stop travelling so soon- who knows which other amazing things I'll see and experience in the future?


Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


To be honest: usually I'm the person who stands in the evening with my backpack in the middel of a city, holding a sign in my hands "need a couch for the night"
Using the normal way of finding a couch before I arrive doesn't happen too often.
But in general, I had a lot of really amazing experiences with staying at couches- even if I found then without the website

Teach, Learn, Share

I have a Foundation in Ghana, that's why I think that I can teach lots about my experiences about the subjects development and sustainibility.
I'm always open for everything new and interesting- it's hard to say a certain subject I want to know more about.
