About Me

The best is to ask for hosting 2-3 days before arrival. I keep it spontaneously and i am really bad at planning. ;)

Hello you awesome human kind!

I am awesome I guess. But I am also very moodish, selfish (not voluntarily ;)), childish and foolish.

Let´t be finally awesome by then and let us share the moment!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Simply like to host people, especially because guests bring the travel atmosphere in my flat that I miss so much. Guests make me feel participating at their journey.

Once I get to to travel again, guess what I try to give to my hosts..

CS is practicing our good will to share what we have and recieve what we need to strangers.
Since CS got very popular over the years I hope we can take it as an advantage as more people get into the sharing...

spent half a year in remote villages in Laos to explore the local way of eating beatles for breakfast.

Teach, Learn, Share

For my guests:

In the evening I like to cook with you and have a few drinks. If there is a good concert or party I will definitely ask you to join! If i have time and mood I can also be your personal tour guide in Dresden. Very simple, but at least a good overview about Dresden...
