About Me


Living the dream: Striking the perfect balance between" just do it" and "just dude it"


These days I am staying in Bangkok, but will soon go back to Germany where I grew up and spend most of my life. One of my big dreams is to live and work in Japan permanently.

Still, mainly work in progress - I work hard to make my dreams come true and get the most out of life, but going with the flow at times has brought me farther than any master plan would have.

After all things still hold true:
Life is what happens when you're busy planning other things. And he who believes to be someone, has ceased to become someone !

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Currently staying abroad and unable to host. But I look forward to host interesting people at my place as soon as I am back to Germany !


There have been so many remarkable encounters with random and diverse, but most interesting people I mainly have one thing in common with: An open mind and the willingness to learn.I owe meeting them and all the precious memories to go along with that to CouchSurfing.

And I look forward to a few more years of couchsurfing to come.


Interested in all kinds of stuff but especially into literature, psychology, sociology, history, politics, good movies and food.
When it comes to traveling to me getting to know a country means to get to know and try to understand its people - and not necessarily to have seen every single attraction you`re supposed to see.

Also got hooked up with some of the good American rap, be it 2Pac, Biggie, or Nas.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Climbing Mt. Fuji with a group of friends wearing just ordinary jeans and sneakers, reaching the top, watching the sunrise, finally climbing down while passing through the clouds, reaching the vending machines and enjoying the best coke ever. Awesome !
