About Me

I'm studying photography and also working a lot to earn a living.
I'm very much into photography (of course), magazines, arts and music. I love going to concerts. Berlin is the perfect place for that. Sometimes the list of upcoming shows drives me crazy. If I would have enough money I would probably spend most of it for music and would go to concerts several times a week.
Besides that, I like the fact that Berlin combines a lot of creative & international influences.
I'm happy when I'm just riding a bicycle in the city during spring & summer time. One can always discover something new here.
Btw it's a green city, that's important for me as well, since I grew up at the countryside.

Still, I've got itchy feet all the time and feel like I haven't travelled much so far.
So first of all I'd love to live some time abroad, preferably near the sea or some mountains. Or both:)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

Mostly because I'd like to meet locals. I'm not into tourist attractions. Hosts give a much better insight into the culture and also the opportunity to visit more "authentic" places. I like that a lot.

I updated my Hosting Status to "Not Accepting Guests" shortly after I moved to a single room apartment in Berlin. It's because I don't want be visible in the search results anymore. I got a lot of requests and it was difficult to arrange things with guests & busy working schedule (since I often have to get up at 5 or 6 in the morning.)
BUT as a matter of course I would be happy to offer a place to stay to people who had hosted me. (There's a daybed).
