About Me


Comeback to Germany


Who i am and what i want?

..hard to describe myself, so the third person knows how to do it.

"When you stay at home nothing can happen to you" (cite: War and Peace)
i like to experience life with all its variety. Im a big fan of hitchhiking and hiking - the best way to catch up with the local people and nature. Also i like to try out different things. Good key words for me are circus, homeless, wilderness, nature, nature, spirituality, philosophy.


You always attract people who are similar like you. They are the mirror and the interpretation of yourself. When you do good things, good things and person will be set on your way

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I hosted several people in my flat, crashed some couches during my travels and even traveled with some couchsurfers. I participated at the Wintercamp 08 in Berlin and Valpovo '09. I was organizing some short film projections in some clubs and got the surfers to join...


I love Couchsurfing! Few people who i met changed my perspective in live and im really thankful for that. I really like to meet people with great stories of their lives, travels and live experiences.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I did a course to learn gliding and was sitting after 2 weeks alone in the plane, that was the greatest XP.
I walked the Camino de Santiago 1000km through France and Spain, a real great walk. New zealand tramping for 3 month, a lot of tramps to go to!
