Get an autonomous quadcopter to fly, climbing, and playing my ukulele
Equal parts adventurer, nerd, and hippie. I like this world I live in, really, it's not just that I feel comfortable living here, but I enjoy it... actively! I love simple things like water, movement, colors, laughs and the thousand coincidences that happen every hour and make it the incredible place it is.
"So whatever you do, don't be bored, this is absolutely the most exciting time we could have possibly hoped to be alive. And things are just starting"
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
When I host I try to offer others as much time as possible. I'm always in for some coffee or beer.
When I travel I do it with a curious spirit and eager to learn new things from the places I visit and the people I stay with, that of course means that I'm also willing to teach others as much as I know.
My former flatmates ( Patrick, Simon and Thomas ) and I hosted several (100+) people in Stuttgart, now that I live in smaller flat here in Heidelberg the rate will go down, but I'm still happy to meet some new faces
I Like Turtles!
... and nature in general.
Rock climbing, photography, and tea are 3 things that make me extremely happy!
I'm learning to play the guitar and the ukulele.
Origami, maths and patterns, evolution and ants, BOOMERANGS and ROBOTS!!! (Someday I'll create the RoboBoomerang and take over the world with it!!! MUAHAHA!!!)
Other people and other cultures unknown to me. I'm a very curious person and always enjoy learning new things.
Dislikes: platitudes, clichés, and bad photography (better hide your pic "holding" the Eiffel tower before sending me a request ;) ). Sitting hours long watching the TV, not caring about what you eat.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Well, I actually find my day-by-day (here in Germany with all the scientific and robotic stuff, sustainability, traveling and climbing all around place) pretty amazing. But I think you would rather want to hear about the time I saved that really fat guy from drowning, the time I swam in a river full of crocodiles, the time I slept 300m above the floor with icicles falling from the mountain top , or when I was driven through the test track of the Porsche Development Center by a test pilot... yes, those were great too.
Teach, Learn, Share
Teach/Share: Climbing, self-made outdoor stoves, unit-origami, a lot about my homeland, my culture, and the places i've traveled
Learn: how to cook any traditional dishes, any stories or folktales, how to play the guitar and the ukulele, and so on... in the end all knowledge is valuable!
