About Me

My blog explains it all quite well:

I only moved to Beijing a few weeks ago but so far I really love it. The food is great, the people are surprisingly more fun then I thought they would be and I can only say good things about China so far. I work as a Journalist, Blogger and Teacher here and I love to make new friends. I have been couchsurfing quite extensively in the past couple of years and now it's time for me to host travellers in need :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

CouchSurfing used to be a pretty awesome tool back in the days when I travelled a lot. In 2009 I hitchhiked to Iran from Berlin and all my way back and CouchSurfed through the entire trip. I made a lot of awesome friends and it has literally changed my life a lot. I still love the concept and I'm happy to help other travellers out with a couch.


I love travelling obviously and meeting new people. I love football and my favorite team is Schalke 04 by the way, if you like them too the chances of me hosting you just got a bit bigger. I spent a lot of time in the Middle East, especially in Iran and Afghanistan and this part of the world really amazes me a lot. I'm quite an enjoyable person and probably the most easy going one I know.
