About Me

I am Jerry, a 27 year old vagabond, philosophy student and activist from Berlin living in Edinburgh for the winter semester.

After high school I traveled a year and a half with my bicycle around Europe and Morocco, became a sailor in the Netherlands on traditional sailing ships, hitchhiked through Europe, survived on the Canaries by making giant soap bubbles and finally I sailed and hitchhiked a bit more.

I try to explore, learn, enjoy and live as much as possible while having a good impact on my environment.

End of summer 2016 I came back to Berlin and started to study philosophy and got into politics and activism to make a change in the world.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Surfers tend to bring the spirit of travel and adventure with them into my everyday life only by appearing - thank you!

And surfing myself always helped me a lot to connect with people and places!

Music, Movies, and Books

I love books, I love music even more and sometimes I like films.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Feeling so full of life during long time travel far away from home

Teach, Learn, Share

Back in Berlin I started gardening and I am happy to share some of the things I learned. Also I can share knowledge about sailing, stuff about a map you have never seen before and I could give you thought experiments that question some of your and my most basic beliefs ... philosophy is awesome!

I would love to learn about you're recipes and cooking tips! Also I am learning Russian language and I am happy to refresh my five sentences in Spanish and French and my two in Italian ;)

What I Can Share with Hosts

I love cooking and can make you a nice vegan meal! Mostly I bring a bottle of wine or some chocolate together with a good hitch hiking story of the day :)
