About Me


travelling NZ, Australia and South East Asia


I'm Eric, 24 years old and currently living in Berlin. I was born and raised in an idyllic, small village in the heart of Germany and moved to Berlin to study mechanical engineering. After high school, I took a year off to explore the beautiful countryside of Canada and Alaska and felt in love with travelling. Since that, I travel as much as I can!


Every day of life is a gift, make the most of it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Meeting new people and surfing couches. Unfortunately not able to host so far.


Awesome experiences up to this point! Some were better than others, but everyone was awesome. I learned a lot, shared some stuff and did amazing things. Travelling without meeting locals and getting to know their culture and lifestyle is not the right way to travel for me.


I'm a totally outdoorsy person! When I'm travelling, I enjoy everything you can do in nature - hiking, kayaking, scuba diving, skiing and stuff like that. I'm also always looking for crazy and adventurous stuff to do.
When I'm not in the nature, I usually spend all my energy in sports, meeting friends and enjoying the Berlin techno scene.
