Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I am addicted to learning things. I love knowing new cultures, talking about history and philosophy of other countries and learning new languages. From me, expect long and deep talks about books, cultures, history, the meaning of life and much more!

I like to meet the locals everytime I travel, hearing their point of view about the country they live in. I managed to meet a lot of interesting people on couchsurfing and I enjoy listening to their life stories.


People, languages, music, philosophy, politics...
In my house I have some board games which we can play! :)

Teach, Learn, Share

I love teaching people and sharing knowledge. I am also willing to learn anything and I try as most as possible to be open minded for new people and experiences.

What I Can Share with Hosts

My house is 40 minutes by TRAM from Düsseldorf Hbf OR 20 minutes by TRAIN.
I live alone, my appartment is small (26 square metters). I have a big bed (for 2 people) and an extra mattress. Usually, I sleep on the bed and the guest sleeps on the extra mattress. If you are 2 people, I can take the mattress and the 2 guests sleep on the bed.

In my house, I have only vegetarian food but you if you really want to eat something else you are free to buy it and use my kitchen to cook it.
