About Me


on the road


adventurous, flexible, full of ideas


search and find your passions, then choose what you love and love your choice

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


People can always sleep at my place, but since I live in tourist town for skiing and snowboarding I can't take groups of people who are on skiing vacation...


really positive so far, I surfed and I hosted. CS is a system that can be abused easily and I was critical when I was joining, but I'm actually surprised about how many people really want to meet others and share experiences! sure it's also about finding a free place to stay, but I think the experiences are good if this isn't our main motivation...


I like drinking coffee and observing people passing by, would propably die without other people to communicate

Music, Movies, and Books

yes please.
Movies: Bourne trilogy, Lord of the Rings trilogy, Blood Diamond, The Big Lebowski, Into the Wild, Love Actually, Fight Club, etc.
Books: a lot of scientific stuff, love history (historical novels), usually I read books that teach me something about life
Music: acoustic and melancholic stuff, progressive house to go out, most of the time christian worship

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

difficult question. Africa made the deepest impact on me so far. Especially the way poor people approach life and how they maintain a positive attitude in hopeless circumstances.
Concerning nature...I once saw a group of Dolphins right in front of me, when I was sitting on the rocks right in front of the ocean. They came, looked at me...and then went on. Was very impressive.
