About Me


See world. Talk to people. Stumble into adventures. Survive.


I like to talk to all kinds of characters and people, because I'm curious and I want to find out what's going on in peoples' mind. I love learning from others through conversation and listening to stories from their lifes.

Little bit chaotic, head full of crazy ideas, sometimes maybe too many but a small percentuage is kind of useful so that is what gets me through life.


Live and let live! ;)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Sorry for the almost non existant reply rate - i was absent from here for long years. Trying to be better!

Well, I like to have couches all over the world ;) but mostly its about getting to know interesting people, listen to their stories, offer them a couch, make coffee in the morning and stuff like that. But since my life is very busy unfortunately I can't always offer a couch when one is needed.

Music, Movies, and Books

I read tons of newspapers and magazines, maybe too many to stay sane. Love International papers like The New Yorker, Guardian, Washington Post...
Books:Sometimes a classic, sometimes a russian, sometimes sth contemporary, often educational / science related books.
I'm interested in language, communication, politics, media, economy, art, and stupid memes on the Internet.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Roadtrip through Albania

Teach, Learn, Share

I can tell you a lot about places and sites to see in Vienna, about culture, traditions and history here and if you wish also about politics.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I have a single room appartment. It's a big room but still just one. So hosting really depends on my schedule and how I feel about having company.

Albania, Croatia, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Montenegro, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Switzerland
