About Me


studying mechanical engineering in Berlin - and when not, exploring the world


Hey travelers, my name is Eric and I'm 21 years old. I was born and raised in Saalfeld, Germany and finished my high school there. I took a year off to explore the beautiful countryside of Canada before I started studying mechanical engineering in Berlin. I'm currently using every oppertunity to travel the world.
I'm an easy-going guy who is up for any adventure!


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

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Meeting new people


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 is not the right way to travel.


I'm a totally outdoorsy person! When I'm travelling, I enjoy everything you can do in nature - hiking, canoeing, scuba diving, skiing, snowboarding, camping etc.
When I'm not in the nature, I usually spend all my energy in sports. Besides fitness, Muay Thai is definitely my passion.
I currently really enjoy the Berlin techno scene.
