Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild precious life? - Mary Oliver

I'm originally from Germany but lived and studied Ocean Engineering in Florida. I quit my apartment a while ago and started traveling around with my red backpack. I don't really feel like being German, I prefer to live and work somewhere else, at a new place I haven't seen before.

In general, I'm very social, I enjoy many sports so I do rowing, climbing, diving, playing saxophone, ukulele, and I'm a crewmember on traditional sailing vessels. Also, I love to try new things, to cover my days with lots of activities, and to be outside all the time. While it may be too much sometimes, it gives me the chance to widen my perspective and to get connected to different kinds of people. Spending time with friends, laughing, new experiences...at all, I try to enjoy life as best as I can.

If there is a chance to go out, I travel as often as possible. To get to know new people and new places is beautiful. To zoom out of everyday life and feeling more yourself. That's my inspiration for traveling.

Interested in learning German?
Haha yes, that's me!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

For me, it's all about the people I meet and not necessary to save money. It is way more exciting to get connected with locals instead of being the stereotypical tourist just moving from hotel to hotel.
So yeah, everyone's lives in a different way, with different standards, expectations, and habits - I can't get enough of that, so inspiring.


I already do a lot of sports but always love to try new ones.

Electro Swing music as Parov Stelar - Booty Swing/ Catgroove/ Al Night;

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Lived one week with soldiers on their minehunter and experienced their everyday life.
Hitchhiked 2 weeks through Norway to get there on a sailing vessel.
A lot of sailing as a crew on a 100 ft and a 213 ft traditional sailing vessel.
