---Not able to host atm----
Finally I can live the life that I've been looking and working for such a long time!
- Finished my studies in social work
- Quit my fulltime job as a paramedic
- Quit my flat
- Gave away almost everything I own
to become a gypsy and be free.
Traveling on my own to enjoy freedom and having no responsibilities except for calling my mother from time to time saying I'm OK.
On this journey I try to get around as long as it takes to find a cozy place where I can stay and create a home.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I found people and friends on Couchsurfing who are willing to trust one another and believe in the good spirit of euch other. So far I have had 100% good experience with that and see this community as a mix of totally different people who all share the same spirit.
I want to give thanks to all my hosts so far and hope this list will expand a lot longer!
LL Hady from London is a schoolteacher and I'd love to see my future kids be in his class.
Stephanie from Zurich made a delicious cheese fondue. Cliche so what? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Jan knew the best spots to be in Prague and took me to a normal looking bar with freaking pumas walking in long cages in the backyard, no joke!
David in Ireland took me to the Pub =) It was a great craic! That's Cork slang for having fun
Lennard in Münster was very kind and even helped me moving to Münster weeks later thanks a million!
Johanna and I had a good laugh in Colognes nightlife.
Mike from Mobile in Alabama was a 5* gentleman who showed us the amazing beach from Pensacola.
Caroline and Sven from Basel are a young couple who already know the spirit of Couchsurfing and are a pleasure to stay with.
Thomas from Luzern is a phenomenal person himself I can't put in a few lines so please read my reference.
Luciano from Montreux is a remarkable person who taught me a lot about travelling and leaving your fears and boundaries behind you.
Christian from Tübingen had the most loveable laughter I ever heard. Mirror neurons literally force you to laugh with him.
Anja is an animal when it comes to serious drinking on monday night and having the energy to be the whole next day in the library studying. Great fun with her and her flatmate Eva in the streets from Tübingen.
Jami from Tübingen has a big heart and wonderful sense of welcoming people. Unfortunatelly we only had a few hours together.
Eric in Konstanz became a friend. No he became a brother to me!
Anna from the small Italian mountain town "Roncogno" was busy as hell but still found time to host me and give me good tips about the area around to explore.
Simon tracks the mountains like a goat and was patient enough to drag me with him. Wonderful experience and very sympathic man.
Markus and Melanie in St. Johann in Tirol are a great couple, super easy going and fun to be with.
Stefan from Velden gave me great inspiration from his very own craftet house and was goid fun to hang out on a rainy weekend.
With Rafaela and her young daughter in Schlatten I experienced a very tasty vegan life and received lots of good spirit in a time that I was not feeling well.
Thomas from Ljubljana taught me the first card game that's fun with only two people and of course much more ;)
Tina from Izola is totally bananas and has her own banana republic that's definitively worth being a citizen under her leadership.
Marko's own little bay on Krk is a magical place and he himself is one of the most laid back persons that I've ever met.
What I am mostly interested in is the people themselfes. If you listen carefully there is a lot you can learn from every single one. Unfortunatelly people are often using masks and try to hide who they really are by showing off an image of who they want to be. Once people are honest and show you who they really are you are ready to make a real connection.
Music, Movies, and Books
I love the books by Hunter S. Thompson. He´s a genius at telling you his very own subjective vision of a the crazy world we´re living in.
Douglas Adams probably is the most funny and silly author and his dry english humour is just hilarious.
The best book I´ve read so far is Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk. Just let this quote sink for a moment: The things you own end up owning you.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Making it to this point without becoming crazy.
