About Me

Well where to begin?

Right now I live in Hannover working in an IT company.
In my vacations I try to travel as much as possible.

Although I am German lot of people say I can't be... perhaps because I am not interested in cars, football and beer :)

I love Latin american and Brazilian culture - their way of live - the music, cuisine, the way to handle things

I am very open minded and what I really don't like is ignorance, to me ignorance leads to egoism and racism, because ignorant people don't think - Ignorance is NOT a bliss!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To get to know new people, make friends, have fun, good talks and parties


I am interested in history and why are things as they are today
I really love good parties with lots of delicious food and drinks and interesting conversations
I am German but I am not interested in football except if there is food, drinks and interesting conversations besides football :)
I can't live without music, all kind of music Puccini to Sepultura
Traveling to me is very important, I love to get to know new cultures the language and their local cuisine
