About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Take me disappearin’ through the smoke rings of my mind Down the foggy ruins of time, far past the frozen leaves The haunted, frightened trees, out to the windy beach Far from the twisted reach of crazy sorrow

ABOUT ME

...Well of course, I'm open minded, crazy about new faces and places, curious about everything and everybody and, and, and so what everybody writes on CS.

But what I can maybe say about me is, that I'm looking for magic wherever I go. Some images that lift your spirit, some shared nights with a good talk or maybe looking up to the stars and feeling a strange longing in your heart....I'm searching and searching for something beautiful and amazing and touching everyday.... for a crazy and drunk night danced through, for a wasted morning staring at the waves coming in, for crazy people, for whatever may happen along my way and I'm sure there is always a way....I walk until the road becomes my road and if there is no road I walk there anyway(and I actually do this.....)

Oh and what I always forget to mention: I don't eat meat. (sorry, in advance!)

PHILOSOPHY

...the situation might be hopeless but never serious..

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I mainly surf myself, have only hosted once because my living situation is quite unsteady since two years......but as soon as I get quiet and settle down there will always be room for surfers!

fell madly in love with Cary Grant and Alfred Hitchcook at the age of eleven watching North By Northwest for the first time.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

....slept in a field and watched the sun rise in front of Stonehenge.....hitchhiked from berlin to amsterdam and got taught a lot about Tom Waits by a truck driver.....set out for a bike trip to slovenia without maps or directions and even managed to return...fell in love...fell in love again....the burned ruin of my parents house and my former home.....the stars....getting stoned and trying to get lost in a foggy wood with one of my best friends....blue skies in cold winter mornings....16 ours of non-stop-talking with another great friend and having our first cup of coffee at 4:15am.........

Teach, Learn, Share
