About Me


Live. Enjoy. Explore. Please. Arrive. Depart. Change and Learn.


I love travelling. My mum took me to the most amazing places when I was a kid. Thailand, Africa, Bali, Sri Lanka. My dad took me to Norway, Sweden, Spain etc... I grew up with it and it's always been important to me. Before university I was travelling all over the western U.S. and I loved it (thanks to all those great people who hosted me!).
During my 6 years of studies I stayed at home with my family in a suburb of Vienna which was not a great place to host guests. I hope to be a host as soon as I have my own place to live!
Currently I'm travelling New Zealand with my girlfriend Julia on a working holiday visa. We want to enjoy nature, do some basic work, have time for ourselves and enjoy the lives of travelers.

I enjoy music. Listening to it, making it and dancing to it.

I love to be around people.


Enjoy your life, but try to make it even more enjoyable for others.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Dancing with fairy wings with a friend of mine on a shopping street to some random clarinet music played by a street musician. Awesome day.

Sunrise at the Grand Canyon.

Hiking up Half Dome and walking through snow in my Teva sandals :D

What I Can Share with Hosts

I love to help my hosts with their households. Clean things that have been sitting on the shelf for ages, finally oil that squeaking door or simply do the dishes.
Talking about travelling and what to do with our lives is something I enjoy a lot.
