About Me

My name is Christoph. I was born and raised in (and nearby) the city of Jena. It's a multicultural but moderate-sized town, which is probably most famous for its venerable university. But Jena has also beautiful nature, rich culture and history to offer. Jena is located in Thuringia - "the green heart of Germany".

I am a calm, friendly and humorous person. Recently, I finished my studies about "Mediainformatics and Interactive Entertainment". But before I'll get myself a full-time job and eventually settle down somewhere, it is my goal to spent a whole year abroad in Japan. From this experience I hope to grow as a person, get a better understanding of the world (especially Japan), and find my own answers to some personal questions.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

A penpal from Japan told me about her experience with couchsurfing. I was a bit skeptical at first, but now I will give it a try.

Music, Movies, and Books

Favorite music: mostly melodic metal (Die Apokalyptischen Reiter, Van Canto, Metallica, Coppelius Apocalyptica) as well as some other bands of different genres, like Depeche Mode, Schandmaul, Guano Apes, Lacuna Coil and so on.

Books and movies: pretty much all Fantasy ans Sci-Fi stuff.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

My first time riding out: very scary and very euphoriant at the same time.

But here in Japan? Soaking in a Onsen. Oh, and my first taste of Ramen, I guess. ^^

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm not really a teacher, but if you want to practice German, or talk about European history ...

What I Can Share with Hosts

For a friend of mine I have taken some pictures from my hometown, as well as Dresden and Berlin. If you like, I'll share them with you and give you a little photo-tour about the most famous sights of these cities.
