About Me


Mh, what could be interesting to decide if you want to surf with me or not?
Of course I am narrow-minded, I don't like to meet people and I hate to travel. That's why I am on Couchsurfing, right?
Beside, I think I am a pretty regular guy, layed back and don't take myself and life too seriously. I think it's hard to shock or offend me, so if you are not a religious fanatic, political extreme or missionary vegan, we should get along together quite well.
To fulfil some German cliches: I like beer (sadly I can't handle it very well, so I mostly take the alcohol free), sausages, watching soccer even so I don't support a specific team, and I am strict about arriving on time.
I enjoy the simple things in life like being outside in nature, laying in the grass and watching the sky while discussing about life, the universe and everything. And I am open and curious to try and see new things. So, if you have an idea or hobby that you think could broaden my horizon: Let's go for it!

My dream would be to leave Germany and settle down on a community farm in the Carribian Sea, Spain, or somewhere else where the sun is shining and "Bodenfrost" can not be translated in the local language. But I suppose this will stay a dream for a while...

Since cooking seems to be a big deal here, some update:

I am one of the worst cooks in Frankfurt. So please don't ask me to cook a typical dish for you, you would get sick and I would be ashamed. I can rather bring you some German sweets or beer as a present.
However, I don't mind cooking together, as long as you take the lead and I keep cutting the onions, peeling potatoes...


It doesn't matter if you are not perfect, as long as you are better than yesterday.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I started my CS career with a few trips in Germany. Thanks to these hosts who let me in without references.

After I moved to Frankfurt (and therefor a region with an active community and travellers comming) I also had the chance to host travellers, often last minute/emergency requests, and take part in (or organize) small meetings/events.
I also try to help new surfers getting started in the CS jungle.


Meeting different people from so many countries really enriched life, since everyone brings his/her own experiences, stories, views on life...
And beside some very few unlovely experiences I think signing up here almost 5 years ago was one of my best decissions.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Walking up the "Zugspitze", the highest montain in Germany. 2200 meters of hight in one day. I had blisters for weeks, but it was a great experience anyway...

Visiting the "Area47" summer 2013 in Austria, a great outdoor playground. I had to skip most of the activities because of my fear of heights or bad physics, but it motivated me to work on these and come back in 2014 to rock it!
