About Me


learn something new everyday


I don't really like to judge myself. But I basically get along well with anyone.


I usually don't have favorites.
I try not to have any stereotypes and think that travelling is the best antidote.
I believe that society should be fairer and more balanced than it is right now.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I haven't had the chance to host many people, but I've been to a lot of cs meetings, have surfed a lot of couches and spread the word ;)


all my experiences so far have been great. two of the coolest things that happened to me so far, was a free tour of the canadian parliament and randomly meeting a cs-member when i didn't have a place to stay in the middle of the night :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Climbed Mt. Cotopaxi in Ecuador. At about 5200m a storm hit the mountain and everybody had to turn back. It was scary and wonderful at the same time.

Diving at the Great Barrier Reef and lying down in the sand 10 meters deep under the water.

Teach, Learn, Share

Languages (German, English, Spanish, Korean, a bit of Protuguese, French and recently Dutch)

(basic, blue belt) Taekwondo

I know the best way to cook rice and the fastest and easiest way to open a pack of Spaghetti.
