About Me


Explore South America


I think I am very easy to get along with, I am very much into meeting new people and seeing new places.
During an awesome exchange year in England I discovered Couchsurfing and realized I could not go back to the "normal student life" I had before. This is why I went to Japan where things got even crazier than they had been in England. Nevertheless I returned to little boring Braunschweig for a while where I finished my studies. To avoid working a little longer and to fulfill a wish that i had for a long time - to learn spanish - I moved to Salamanca. Having done that I started doing my PhD in Berlin. After 5 years this work is done now and my girlfriend and me are back on the road.


All different, all the same! Talk to each other and you'll see!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Travelling and meeting people itself is so amazing that I can hardly reduce it to just one thing...

Teach, Learn, Share

Teaching? Well my as I have studied engineering my talents are based in math and various kinds of (applied) physics.
Besides that I am sure I can give you some useful hints about travelling in europe, especially in the UK and Germany.
