I never traveled a lot while living in Germany. Then I decided to go to Australia for 9 month after my school degree . This 9 month became 12, 12 became 2 years, 2 years became 3. After 3 years and 16 countries in my travels I came back to Germany to finally start to study but I got a good job offer in Switzerland so I moved there. Let's see what will come next. ;)
Be free and enjoy! Do whatever you want to do! Live your dream and the world will belong to you.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I surfed a couple of times in Australia and New Zealand. One of the best experience I had was with my hosts Paul and Sarah, their two dogs, cat and turtle in Adelaide. It was Australia Day and Paul invited me to join his familiy to celebrate a real aussie day, just amazing! I always wanted to come back and after 1 1/2 years I finally managed it to be back at their place. :)
Another time, my host Clint just gave me the key to his house after he just knew me for about 30 minutes.
If everyone would be so open minded our world would be a much better place!
Two other hosts, Patrick in Hobart and Harry in Auckland, changed their life completly and have travelers basicly every week at their place, just amazing!
And the newest and again really amazing thing:
I traveled with Anida, an Indonesian girl, for about two weeks and told her recently about my plans to go to Java. She wrote a couple of friends and now people invited me to Badung and Yogya. That really makes traveling easy. :)
Traveling,traveling and more traveling! Exploring new countries, cultures and meeting new people. Photography, photoshop (total beginner at the moment :D) reading good books, writing my travel journey, watching movies, partying, gym.
Music, Movies, and Books
Series: How I meet your mother, Scrubs, Family Guy, Californacation, Games of Thrones
Music: Mostly rock, party music. Also Bowling for Soup, Sum41, Blink 182, Billy Talent, Good Charlotte, Simple Plan, Offspring.... But I also could spend hours listening to the lord of the rings soundtrack or beethhovens 9 sinfonie.
Books: For me the books of Sergej Lukianenko's tetralogy are some of the best books. I just reread them in English. At the moment I read Lee Child (Jack Reacher novels), Jeffery Deaver and the Games of Thrones books.
