About Me

CURRENT MISSION

to save up for a paraglyding license

ABOUT ME

I moved to Berlin over 2 years ago to finish my studies in Music & Creative industries. I now work at a music publisher and license music for film and advertising. Most of the time I really like it because I get paid to listen to music all day which is basically my favourite thing anyway. Sometimes I get really tired of sitting in an office all day. Then I look at travel pictures and blogs and wish I was rich so I could travel more. This is probably a good time to insert my favourite quote "Travel is the only thing you can buy that makes you richer."
I used to really like being an active host and surfer on couchsurfing. I am a little bit sad and dissapointed because since I live in Berlin, I get flooded with boring, meaningless requests that were copied and pasted. I am not expecting potential surfers to reinvent the wheel, but I also can't be bothered to answer if I feel like they just want a free place to stay. Please, do not send me a boring and meaningless request.

PHILOSOPHY

don't worry, be hippie.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

positive! I used to host and surf quite alot but stopped last year because i felt like the couchsurfing crowd changed alot. I just updated my profile (March 2015) and i am willing to give it another try as a host. As Berlin is very popular, i get about 20-30 requests a day. I try to answer every request, but i will not host more than 2 or 3 people a month.
