About Me


Cell regeneration, breathing, the usual stuff


I give only a temporary impression of my personality and the things i like here, but things might change fast.

Creative, curious, social and talkative but sometimes also quiet and shy-depends which impression I have of my counterpart, spontaneous, want to know everything, vegetarian (sometimes vegan), contemplative, sometimes lazy but unhappy about it, I get nervous when people in movies take a long time answering the phone and it keeps ringing or I yell at the actors and give them advice, ...

You'll see!


Do you remember when you were a child, and everything was so new, interesting and mysterious? In some kind of way I try not to loose this glance at the world, this feeling of wideness and excitement.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I surfed and hosted


I met people on CS which are now very good and dear friends of mine


Obviously, I like travelling, like everybody on Couchsurfing... Because my father is a kayak trainer I learned it from an early age, but I am not a professional like him.
All in all, i like being outdoors, hiking, climbing or just walking alone in a forest. When I was younger, I always wanted to be an artist ( or an Astronaut) but it turned out, that Journalism is the thing.
But I still like drawing, art and museums.
There is nothing like a good theater play. I once watched War and Peace by Leo Tolstoi, it took 4 hours and I was thrilled every second of it. I like good books, movies and food.

Things I also like: Going to the flea market to feel the old times but not buying anything, writing, Radio, social anthropology, politics, ...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I surrounded the croatian island cres with a cayak, there i saw the clearest starry sky.
I've lived in Kathmandu for 2,5 months.
I climbed on the top of a rollercoaster in an abandoned amusement park in Japan.

Teach, Learn, Share

I could teach some funny Austrian dishes like "The emperor's nonsense" , how to get rid of hiccups, how to kayak, show some abandoned places in Vienna, ...

Please tell me the history of your country! I want to know everything about political changes in the past and present, problems, achievements, the government...

I want to do urban exploring and go to abandoned places and ruins.
