About Me


learning Spanish while traveling through Argentine, Chile, Peru


Fascinated about the world and all that live upon it, animals, plants and people alike. Hmm no, people most. They at least have the decency to talk back during hour long conversations about politics, science, philosophy, always soaked in irony and humour though.

generally love everybody. love hitchhiking, love hiking. love life.......


life is so much nicer if you don't get irritated by people, no mather what they do. life is what you make it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Hosted a number of people over the years. always awesome. spent some time back in south america at peoples places. visited a huber of meetings. The kindest crowd, those CS-ers
25.000 kilometers of hitchhiking has always treated me well (and vice versa)


As stated before: politics, science, philosophy, nature, nonsense in general, life at large.

Music, Movies, and Books

Rythm, rythm, rythm.......from 50.000 people house parties in the sun to one-person beatbox-Jamsessions in the shower......

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The lush rododendron forrests of the Himalayas, the Amazing desert and mountain ranges around San Pedro de Atacama. The moonlike landscapes of Utah. The shear enormity of the skyscrapers of New York. The literally breathtaking view from a 6088 meter high mountain over La Paz. Some 1000 childbirths......never the same....

Teach, Learn, Share

Chess, bits and pieces of languages I know. useless biological knowledge. bits and pieces of useful medical knowedge.

Countries I’ve Visited

Australia, Canada, Indonesia, Mozambique, Russian Federation, United States
