About Me

I am an easygoing and optimistic person who cares a lot to experience the good things in this one life I have. Being rather openminded, I am interested in other cultures and people and I always found something new and enriching from every person I meet.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I had two great experiences with friends Couchsurfing hosts in Greenland and Bulgaria and this motivates me to further meet more open minded, curious and friendly people out there like you ;-)


I love to play badminton, do paragliding and read a lot. I also play electric and acoustic guitar, love outdoor cooking, camping and road trips with friends. Though I am rather a big city person I still very much enjoy the outdoors, hiking, flying, watersports etc.
