About Me


Enjoying the moment.


im a bit of a country-side-kid. Grew up in a nice village near the Lake of Constance in southern Germany.
In my childhood my parents traveled quite a bit with me and my younger brother. They really made me fall in love with the mediterrainean area.
My school-education is/was nothing special... I went to the gymnasium and discovered my loathing in most of the technical sciences - but at the same time my love for literature and social sciences.
After school I went travelling on my own for almost a year. I became suddenly addicted to this "drug" and didnt really stop 'til now.
Still though I'm actually studying atm in Frankfurt/Main. But -as I said- I'm either travelling or lookin forward to the next trip.


To wake up in the morning
and smile with the rising sun.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

Getting more and more.


I love languages -especially my own :) - and literature. Sometimes feel the desire to write down my thoughts and world-explanation-ideas and read the ones of great thinkers.
And of course I'm interested in everything about travelling and travellers. I love the CS-project and using it myself. Always good getting to know new people from all over the world.
