About Me


365-international: because there is more that connects us than separates us


Come in and find out...


There is more that connects us than what separates us

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I moved back to Berlin in August 2011. Originally I am from Hamburg but also lived in Madrid (Spain), Brighton (UK) and San Jose (USA). I know how it is like to be in a foreign city and how much more fun it is to have some body to help you to find the interesting places instaed of running with the crowd. I like cs because it demonstrates international spirit and offers a way to overcome national bounderies.


I hosted and was hosted several times. And in June 2012 I initiated an international photo project: 365-international which breathes the cs spirit.

80 photographers from 50 countries take a photo each day for 365 days and add the title headline of a national paper.

Here you can find the roots for this project:

and here you can see the result:


Museums, galleries, art (esp. paintings & fotografy)
Squash, scuba diving, snowboard, sailing, golf
Good food (eating - I can´t cook :-( )
Books, football (watching), traveling, Martinis
