About Me


being excited about upcoming trip!


-- For our 2011 summer world trip --

Frauke's and my travel blog: http://www.kscha.de/world/wordpress/


Now, about me:

Well, that's hard to answer. :) I'm very open-minded, a little bit geeky (math and computer sciency nerd, you get it:) ), very much into sports - my current project is cycling in "Odenwald". I very much like to travel and meet new people. I really enjoyed my one-year stay in Sweden where I was an exchange student in Lunds Universitet. Being part of the exchange student community was awesome!


Chocolate is made out of beans. Beans are vegetables. Vegetables are healthy. Eat more chocolate!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have stayed on several couches, but haven't offered a couch to anyone, because I live in a tiny student appartment in Darmstadt, which will change as soon as I can afford a bigger flat. ^^

Update Summer 11: Now moved into my own - but still tiny - appartment. Can offer a space on the floor now...


I very much enjoyed being hosted by several couchsurfers and hospitality club members.


Maths, travelling, films, running, cycling, singing, cooking, eating.
