About Me

I am back home in cologne after i hitchhiked from cologne to south east asia. I would love to host people, since many lovely brothers and sisters hosted us on our trip. Would be amazing if you are into handdrums. Just got a nice djembé. See you! :)


Ouh, thats a difficult question. I think they would say, that i am a guy who is very calm. Evenmore they would say, that i am very tolerant and open-minded.
I am happy to experience new stuff and new People.
I appreciate mother nature. One day i would like to live in a selfsustainable way. I wish, that we could stop thinking about technological progress and making more and more money. Rather (it is probably an illusion) it would be great if we use our brain skill to go a step back and live closer to the nature. It makes me sad, that media got so much power and let many people think, our western lifestyle is the one and only, just to make benefit. I experienced lifestyles, which were in line with nature.
I do not like racism and sexism.
I just do not like thinking in a box.
I believe every human is somehow good.
I guess there is no darkness, some people are just too far from the light :)
If you request to stay with me write „Salam“ at the beginning ;)
