About Me


Connecting dots


I am Martin. I love living my life in a playful and adventurous way. I tend to seek physical and mental challenges like different sorts of rockclimbing and walking a slackline in beautiful places.

Currently I am connecting the dots in my life. As far as I know, it involves a simple lifestyle, outdoors, together with friends and my beatiful Simone, interacting with our living environment in a conscious and creative way. I am a social worker and I am interested in combining outdoor sports, nature education to enforce people with (mental) difficulties, connecting them with their selves, aligning their hearts, minds and bodies.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I offer what I can share. I share what I can offer. Duh!


It has been years since I was an active CS'er. I have hosted lots of people and surfed a good bunch of couches with amazing people. I am looking forward to new encounters.


I love to climb on rocks. I love to slackine, and highline and longline in specific. I love to hang around in parcs and play like a kid, doing acrobatics, making music and juggle. I love to travel through nature by any means.
I have a large and wide interest in music, and started playing (again) modestly guitar and ukulele.
I am interested in what people can do together, and in how we can improve nature and our living environment by simple and effective means. I attended a PDC (permaculture design course) and aim to practice and learn Permaculture.
I am fond of languages, and will improve my german next 2 years living in Freiburg, but have a good knowledge of french and basics in spanish.

Music, Movies, and Books

I am a passionate music lover, enjoying lot's of music, not motivated to sum it all up. I love Tom Waits for example, animal collective, Prince or Pink Floyd. I am a bad reader but I am giving it a fair try. I love movies, that inspire me and show the unimaginable. Like Michel Gondry or Miyazaki.
