About Me

I was born and grew up in Hamburg, northern Germany, finished school in 2011, took two gap years working and travelling. Moved to Riga for med school in September 13.
Being half way through , I moved back to Germany in spring 2017 to continue studies in the beautiful city of Lübeck, which is approx. 60km north-east of Hamburg right at the Baltic Sea .

Apart from that I would describe myself as an open minded guy (Well, who isn't here on Couchsurfing?) that enjoys meeting other people (ha!), especially those thinking a bit "out of the box", adventures outdoors and whatever else the moment brings.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

The first time I heard about couchsurfing was in 2013 right before I started a 4 months trip through the States and Canada. Back then I thougt I would just try it out in case I wouldn't find a hostel one day. Luckily, that was already the case in the second week, and my first CS-Host was so welcoming that I decided to continue couchsurfing for the rest of my trip. I met so many interesting and inspiring people during that time that even when I returned to Europe, I continued going to Couchsurfing meetings every now and then, and of course also host people when its possible :-)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

OSailed from Hamburg to Copenhagen(Christiania) and back on a 6,60m sailboat (pretty small) with 5 people onboard, some trips we even did overnight. Was quite an experience.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can probably teach you a bit of stuff about sailing and sailboats. If the weather is alright and you're visiting me in Hamburg, we might be able to actually go sailing for a short trip.
Also I'm kind of into photograpphy (an amateur though) but if you wanna learn about how to manually use exposure time and aperture, I can maybe help you.

Countries I’ve Visited

Belarus, Canada, Croatia, Denmark, Ecuador, Estonia, Finland, France, Hungary, Lithuania, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom, United States
