About Me

CURRENT MISSION: enjoying the little things


Tl;dr "My country is the world - my religion is doing good" - Thomas Paine

For those with more time:
I´m an ambitious mate with lots of goals, dreams and ideas. I want to use this life in the best way as possible, by maxing out the time I have, living responsible, caring, loving towards my surrounding and fellow people. I want to use my education for good cause and dedicate my talents for others.

I read and listen inspiring books/speeches, to spark the next big idea in my head. I immerse myself in new topics by learning from others, to increase my knowledge and to satisfy my inqiuisitveness. I´m tolerant towards different aspects and ideas, I try to understand and to see both sides of the coin/argument. I want to see the world through the eyes of the others. To learn, to grow, to enjoy, to share&give&take.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

1. I don´t want to be a tourist, but a traveller. This means to connect to the places and people where I want go
2. Everyone has something to share - sometimes it´s my couch, sometimes yours
3. Traveling on a budget teaches many survival skills and brings the best experiences


Philosophy (getting into stoicism), movies (Nolan&Anderson, and classics like Indiana Jones :3), series (GoT, but I read the books too!), reading (can´t visit a town withouth leaving it with a new book), yes I like to browse on imgur/reddit/9gag on the toilet too, being active (currently climbing and calisthenics)

So to summarize everything: "A interested mind finds in everything interesting"

Music, Movies, and Books

I´m enjoying "Walden" from Henry Therau. It would be great to offer couch-surfers a place in my hut at the lake and the book teaches the simplicity of a life in nature. Highly recommended!
