About Me

We are a small family of 3 (our daughter is 15 years old) and sometimes a patchwork family with two sons, 19 and 21 years old. Especially Middle Agers ☺ and family visitors welcome!

Katja was six years ago on a sabbatical and travelled for six months with her then nine year old daughter through Southeast Asia, coming back in March 16. The following summer we all three have been in Japan with amazing CS-experiences.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

We love to stay with local people when traveling, to get to know their everyday lives and perspectives on life. Katja slept on lots of couches when traveling or living in other countries and as well hosted people (friends of friends of friends...). But from now on we will do it „the official way“ ☺ by getting member of couchsurfing.org ...
