About Me


to make the best out of my holidays from uni!


i just finished my bachelors degree in english and german linguistics and literature in Hamburg, I'm travelling Australia at the moment and afterwards going to start an apprenticeship in a bookshop in Berlin, because it is kind of my dream to have my own bookshop one day.
i really enjoyed my studies because i can't imagine a better way of "doing something for uni" than reading books. apart from work I spend my time hanging out with friends, reading, listening to music, going to concerts, spending time outdoors, travelling as much as possible...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


i couchsurfed a lot on a 6-week roadtrip through the US with two friends a few summers ago. After that i surfed with people in Australia and the UK and my experiences were exclusively positive!
