About Me

I would discripe myself as open minded, spontaniosly, travel enthusiastic and interested in all kind of new things.
At the moment I´m studying Renewable Energies and Energy efficiency. As a part of that I did an Internship with an NGO in Bangalore India, which I enjoyed more than I can discripe :).

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To meet new people and to share different prespectives and opinion of life with eachother.
I also beliefe, that the best way to get to know a country is to meet the locals and couchsurfing is a good way to do it.


I enjoy traveling more than anything and a good book is always good company. I also like to spend time in the nature, hiking climping ore simply chilling out in a beautiful place. I´m also kind of spiritual with a huge interested in different religions, without comitting to one myselfe :).

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

There a many things, which were more than amazing for me privatly, but probably not in the neutrual opinion. One I can think of, which might fit this criteria is staying on top of a volcano (Mount Doom from Lord of the Rings) and look inside.

Teach, Learn, Share

In my opinion there is always something to teach and learn when you are sharing, but you never can say what. Oh and I have some expiriences in hitchhiking all over the glob when you are planing to do that I'm the right person to talk to
