About Me

Just started working ;-)


Hi, I'm Manu. Basically I'm a calm and serene, honest, pleasent natured, patient, open-minded character. Nevertheless I enjoy the company of funny and cordial people. I'm a peaceful person, so I try to avoid trouble.
I like to socialize and hang around with people I like, though I need time for my own sometimes.
I'm interested in learning to know new cultures, because there are always things in the world to discover and you will often be surprised.
I know a thing or two about the ground people walk on every day since I'm a Geologist :-)


Do as you would be done by. Because every creature should be honoured with respect.
I also decided that no animal should die for my pleasure, so I became vegetarian.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Surfed a bit down under, now I'm happy to welcome travellers at my place.


I used to live in a shared flat where 4 out of 7 roommates were couchsurfing hosts, so I came across the network and met some couchsurfing guests. I liked the idea, so I joined the network.
I surfed a couple of times in New Zealand and Germany.


Outdoor activities like hiking, climbing, skiing, kayaking, biking ...I love it to be in the nature and see the untouched wilderness. But watching movies, reading books, playing the piano (not too good) and flute, just hanging around and talking or having a good coffee, sometimes doing crazy things are among my favourites as well :)

Music, Movies, and Books

Coldplay is one of my favourite group, but there is a great variety of music that I'm listening to...blues, electro, indi, rock,...

I'm into Fantasy-books like "Lord of the Rings" though I won't decline any other good book.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Visiting Rio de Janeiro was amazing!
Spending half a year in New Zealand working&travelling is an unforgettable memory as well. That's also where I did my first Bungee :)

Teach, Learn, Share

Know something about geology. Generally interested in more natural science and engeneering.
