About Me

Now I'm half way through studies and taking a small break for again some travelling an internships.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

first saw it as an option to crash a couch if I wouldn't find a hostel one day. But then I got the idea what couchsurfing is actually about and experienced a new way of traveling. haven´t stayed in any hostel for the rest of my trip, 3 months through the States and Canada.

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

What I like about couchsurfing are the stories and experience that the members share with each other. Its like a passive constant learning process going on here.
Apart from that 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.
