About Me


prove stereotypes and prejudices to be wrong!


friendly, outgoing, respectful, open minded and full of energy!


Suum cuique (Latin for "to each their own")

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Travel around the world and spread some joy wherever I go =)


visited 34 states (15.1%)
I have met great new friends through CouchSurfing because I appreciate the possibility of hanging out with locals to get off the tourist trail from time to time and experience authentic stuff...


Really all sorts of sports, both watching and performing. Playing football (or soccer, hehe) and dancing in particular! Plus, of course, meeting new people and going to new places...

Music, Movies, and Books

too many, really. Spontaneously I would say 5 of the best are:
* movies: Forrest Gump, The Beach, Das Experiment, Garden State, Lammbock
* music: Seeed, Mumford & Sons, Oasis, Prodigy, Blumentopf
* books: Die Blechtrommel, 11 Minutes, Sophie's World, Die Physiker, Through Black Spruce

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

A bad question. Only for this trip?! Watching whales jump. Hiking to Machu Picchu. Being dry humped by a monkey. Getting wet from the Iguaçu Falls. Enjoying the sunrise over the Copacabana. Snorkeling with sharks. Occupying the streets of Buenos Aires.

Teach, Learn, Share

The question is never "why" - the question is always "why not"...
