About Me


explore the world


Hey travelers, my name is Eric and I'm 19 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'll start studying mechanical engineering this autumn in Germany.
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


When I'm back in Germany, I would like to start being a host.
Meanwhile, I'll try to be the best guest I can be.


Up to this point, I only made great experiences! Some were better than others, but everyone was awesome. I learned a lot of things, shared some stuff and did amazing things, I never had the chance to before.


First of all, I'm a totally outdoorsy person! I enjoy everything you can do in the nature - hiking, canoeing, diving, skiing, 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.
But I also enjoy listining to music, to cook, to party. and technology/engineering impress me a lot.
At last but not at least, of course travelling and getting to know different cultures are some of my passions.

Music, Movies & Books

Movies: The Pursuit of Happiness, Into the Wild, Lord of the Rings Trilogy, Gran Torino, Seven Pounds and many more...
Music: Andhim, Marek Hemmann, Sascha Braemer, FORNIX, Dallas Green, William Fitzsimmons, Macklemore, ... - actually I like every genre, if it's good
Books: Hannibal-series from Thomas Harris
