About Me

Hi, it's Hendrik. I'm calm, thoughtful and open minded. I grew up in Germany, but also lived in South Africa and China so far. Currently I'm working for the United Nations in Germany.
I dedicate myself to life-long learning, personal development and the adoption of responsibility.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I think it's the best possibillity to meet great people and to learn the culture of the country from within. I also like to make friends all around the world from different backgrounds.


Next to exploring new countries and cultures, I have a big passion for cycling. I'm a keen road cyclist and used to race as a junior. I also try to be cultivated in history, politics and economics.
Recently I started to learn more about meditation. To visit a Vipassana meditation camp is on my bucket list.
