About Me


eating, drinking, breathing, having fun


I am a grad student from the lovely city of Mainz in Germany and i am staying til the beginning of may in Toledo Ohio. Like to laugh, have fun and talk to nice people.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Just starting out as couchsurfer and since i'm only in the us as an exchange student i don't have a couch at the moment but hope to host some travelers back in Germany.


non so far


I like to go out and meet new people or just spend some time with my friends over a tea or a beer. Seeing new cities and countries and spending time on the outside. Good music and food is definetly a must for my well being. i need chocolate and cheese to survive. Like to cook and bake with or for other people.
I go for a run and swimming from time to time and like to discover a city by bike.

Music, Movies, and Books

I'm listening to all sorts of good music. At the moment a lot of Frank Turner, Modest Mouse, Noel Gallagher and FM Belfast. Love to go on concerts with my friends.

I like reading but no particular favourit writer. Maybe Henning Mankell.
