About Me


I study media and communications but I take every chance I get to escape from Germany to see other parts of the world. My traveling philosophy is to have a plan but be open to drop it whenever an opportunity arises to take a step into the unknown.


I'm currently very intrigued by Linji Yixuans Zen Buddhism... on the other hand, personal philosophies change and evolve every day

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Couchsurfing was a great help when I did a world trip in 2012. I got to meet people and experience great things, I would not have seen otherwise. Great website!
