About Me


Figuring life out, day by day :)


my name is Christoph
I'm new to this whole couchsurfing thing, but I love to travel and I love to meet new people, so combining these two seems like a logical thing :)
I'm a law graduate from Austria and my wife Florentina is from Kosovo.


"Tough one, I'm going to add this later :)"

This is what I had in here for months now and as months might turn into years, I thought it was going to stay like this forever, but then I realized, that sums up my philosophy:

"In the making."

You see, nothing in this life is really final. No one is born with the ability to talk or walk right away. No one knows how to write before someone teaches us. Our capabilities change, our talents might shift, our bodies change and so does our character. No relationship is perfect, when people get married, harmony is no instant result, harmony is in the making.
I believe in God, but many times I'm not a good person, yet another point where I'm on my way, but not yet there.
Thankfully life isn't about getting it right.

"The thing about changing your life is, you need grace.
Because it doesn't matter where you come from, it matters where you're going."
Martin Smith

I guess I have a philosophy after all.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Hosting, Surfing, not much though


I have been hosted once and it was a wonderful experience. Looking forward to hosting :)


Oh wow.. I am interested in languages, cultures, people's stories, books, matters of justice and making the world a better place, movies, music.

Music, Movies, and Books

Far too many, but I'll give a random list:
Monsieur Lazhar (movie), Jane Eyre (book), The Hobbit (BOOK!), Die Jungfrau von Orléans (book), Die verlorene Ehre der Katharina Blum (book), Wild at Heart (book), Ganz leise wirbst du um mein Herz (book), The Sacred Diary of Adrian Plass aged 37 and 1/4 (book), Dan in Real Life (movie), Das Wiedersehen (book), the Bible (obviously book), Luki-live (book), The Lord of the Rings (all three), Friends (TV show), Modern Family (TV show), Love Actually (family favourite)..
Music is just such a broad topic! But I do enjoy among others Joshua Radin.

In general I like when any of these stirs up emotions and makes me connect on a personal level.

Teach, Learn, Share

Obviously I could teach some German :) Other than that I don't know, but we could find out.
