ABOUT ME

I am independent, I prefer to do things than talking about it, I love chocolate an recently best mixed with dulce de leche, I am always up for beer, I am happy when i am listening to live music: punk, rock n roll, ska, reggea,I can spend a whole day in watching How I met your mother or scrubs, but i hate to hang around waiting, life is not waiting and i enjoy every single moment.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

First I just looked for a cheap overnight stay, but then I felt in love with the real signification of couchsurfing. Hosted people in my place, then went travelling in Barcelona. I have been to Southamerica and I discovered couchsurfing is a life saver. So many beautiful people who shared their time with me, helped me in difficult situation made my Xmas and New Years Eve Party an amazing experience and actually made this travel possible! Back in Germany I am hoping to give back and meet people to show them my way of living

* I was in Eastbourne during the Airbourne show an as the fireworks starts we jumped into the English sea and the lights where right over us.

Teach, Learn, Share

Can teach to see the positive side on everything. Be spontaneous, discover the city without any plan. I work in the radio and know something about journalism and editing of films and audio material.
I really want to learn the guitar. And I can not cook I would love to learn some easy dishes of oter countries.
