Creating a home base in Cologne while still trying new things, making wonderful connections and enjoying life to the fullest next to the so called 9-5.
I caught the travel bug in 2009 and am happily infected ever since.
What I love most about travelling is how it connects people from all over the world. I believe, that you can learn something from every single person you meet in life. Given the fact that people are so diverse and unique, so are their stories. They may tell you about their home, share a travel anecdote, recommend a good book, show you new music, inspire you or give you a piece of advice for life. They may even become very good friends. And that's what makes travel so special to me.
Apart from cultural exchange and catching up with friends, I also love the outdoors. It's a beautiful diverse world we live in and therefore, I'm always up for some exploring, camping, hiking and spontaneous adventures.
All in all, I'm just trying to enjoy my life as much as I can.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I started Couchsurfing about eight years ago and I already had some great experiences. The hosts I stayed with were awesome and we had a fabulous time together. I already hosted three people at my place as well, met some other Couchsurfers and went to a meeting with Salsa dancing lesson in Miami which was a lot of fun!

I walked about 600km of the Camino de Santiago in Spain last year, which has been one of my most memorable travel experiences so far.
Teach, Learn, Share
I often hitchhike from a to b. The number of rides is more than 200 by now. So if you have any questions or are interested in hitchhiking yourself, I would be more than happy to tell you more about it. :)
