About Me

My father did Interrail in his youth and my mother always encouraged me to travel abroad. So after my highschool graduation I went as a volunteer to Hanoi, Vietnam for 6 months. Subsequent to this program I travelled through Southeast Asia and got hooked up to Couchsurfing, which I used in almost all my travels from now on.

I went back to Berlin to study political science. I am now in my fifth year and studied for one year abroad at the Indiana University in the USA. I'm looking forward to see as much as much from the world as I can.

I'm open-minded and a relaxed guy. You can have a laid-back evening with me or go drinking and dancing. I'm sure we will have fun!

PHILOSOPHY

If it comes to religion I consider myself to be an atheist with sympathies to the philosophy of Buddhism. Clearly open to people of all beliefs for sure!

I very much like this quote: "It is not death that a man should fear, but he should fear never beginning to live." (Marcus Aurelius, Roman Emperor, AD 121-180)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Surfing, sometimes hosting and meeting amazing couchsurfing people.. .. and I also brought my brother here!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

All experiences surfing and hosting people were just great! I'd like to tell the stories when I meet you :)

Interests

We all share our passion of travelling! :) I love sports and play football (soccer) and tabletennis. Recently I got into running and ran my first marathon, which was a big achievement for me. As a student of political science I really enjoy discussing politics. Other than that I fancy watching movies/series in my freetime or read a good book.

Teach, Learn, Share
