About Me

CURRENT MISSION

San Francisco

ABOUT ME

I'm just about to move to Germany for a job in development which I'm looking forward to. While I am German it's still not moving back, as I am sure it won't be my last stop. The last years I've spent mainly in San Francisco, but as well e.g. on a sabbatical in Africa as a volunteer or on other trips. Will be interesting to see what comes now and what next. May be stay in one place for a little bit I think, but the world is still too interesting. See what comes :)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Still kinda new to couchsurfing, but had my first great experiences on my trip through South America and am hoping to be able to give some of that back to Couchsurfers in SF. Don't have a couch right now, but 'd be happy be a tourist guide for a bit ideally combined with a few drinks, even dancing ;)

One Amazing Thing I've Done

The most influencing, as being the first real international experience, was my semester in Honolulu. First experience abroad and with no one around me doing something similar made it somehow surreal, when I finally sat at the airport waiting for my flight, unsure if I not just fooled everyone including me. Great moment standing at the aiport in HNL then, first time away like that, on the other side of the world, a country I've never been in where I know no one and no one actually cares about my (so far). no real possibility of going back in the next months. Had the time of my life, made many real friends, from the US as well as from everywhere in the world. As a result I changed my uni-program and city and became addicted to travelling, living, experiencing cultures.
