About Me

Hello there.
My philosophy is: carpe diem, seize the day! You have to live in this very moment, so enjoy it and embrace every part of it. Exploring the world and myself, always on a journey to someplace somewhere and eager to meet new people and potential new friends.

I travelled a lot and couchsurfing is a really great way to meet people with a lot of opinions and common interests. It also gains you trust in people. This means i don't accept people that are only looking for a free place to sleep. Also, please don't write me if you want to experience nudism. I respect your view, but it's not mine and I'm not gay. Respect that too.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Since I've started couchsurfing on my hitchhiking trip in England/Ireland in 2014, I'm very enthousiastic to give people the same experiences as I've had. That means I host, but also like to surf myself.

Couchsurfing is not about free places to sleep, but is also a way of living, a change to exchange experiences. A way to meet people that like to discover the world and move their own boundaries.

In all my couchsurfingexperiences all the people had their own stories, were completely different, but most had a similarity: they all shared their lives with me for a day or two, sometimes longer. That's why I fell in love with couchsurfing.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Doing Erasmus for half a year in 2011. It was the best lesson I ever had, a way to get in touch with other cultures, with a lot of people, a way to become self-aware and independent and to raise my selfconfidence.

Teach, Learn, Share

A nice couch, an ear to listen, a mouth to tell great stories.
