About Me

I'm Martin and a bicycle nomad, which is the reason I cannot host anyone at the moment. After too much time in too small offices I decided to change my life and started cycling eastbound. I changed my comfortable office chair with a hard leather saddle and the computer with a camera and now, more than 1 year and 17'000km later, I arrived in Southeast Asia. On my way I met a lot of interesting people, cultures and sometimes strange animals. I would like to share these experiences with other's all over the world and I also would like to hear your story. So I'm not just looking for a place to stay, but to meet new people and to have a good time together.

I like to play drums in the middle of the night and to use the sink in the kitchen as a toilet - no, of course not, I'm kidding!! I'm an easygoing person and an absolutely minimalist. The small things makes me happy and just a shower or a washmashine makes me feel like home ;-)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Because I love to make new friends, share stories, having a good time together and of course I love couches ;-)
Couchsurfing is probably the best way to meet the interesting people in the world and there's no reason not to be a part of this community.
