About Me


explore what life has to offer, improve my French


i'm the kind of person who randomly smiles at strangers, helps old ladies getting of the bus or rescues kittens from trees. people might argue that i'm overdoing it with the whole "being-friendly-thing", but i just like helping others and even though it sounds cliché i think whenever you do something nice, you'll get something nice back in return.

i grew up in a small village in upper austria where everybody greets everybody, the grass is green and the sun shines bright. i've lived and worked in ecuador, france and spain. living abroad thaught me a lot, if not about life then at least about myself. also i've learnt that the world is growded by amazingly nice people, something that is proved easily with websites like couchsurfing.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


surfing, hosting, sharing


without lying i can say that i´ve always had a great time with everyone i met through couchsurfing. would be difficult to pick out a specific story. what i like most about the project is, that it makes it easier to get to know places the way they really are.


i like meeting new people and treating them as if i´ve known them forever, i like traveling and getting to know cities and countries the most authentic way possible.

i love the sea, all rivers and lakes, i could spend hours just swimming and diving around, but actually i enjoy any activity in nature. hiking in the mountains, skiing and slacklining are just a few examples. But even just sitting around at random places enjoying nature is great.

reading and writing is something i try to do on a regular basis cause it makes me a more level-headed person. so does listening to music - even though i listen to a lot of different types of music, i'm still very picky (if you wanna know what my idea of "good music" is, let's discuss that in person over a beer or two).

other art-stuff i'm really into is photography and street art. Which is a pretty nice combination, i love wandering through the streets taking pictures.
