About Me


If life is a beach for a while enjoy as much as possible cause you never know when the bitch is back


I don't like to write a discription about myself. whatever i write you wouldn't know if it's true or not before facing me in person. ;)
but i'm usually very open about myself and my thoughts, so whatever you wanna know - feel free to ask! or better: visit / invite me and you'll see :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am pretty new on couch surfing so i cannot provide many references, but i hope that somebody will give me the chance for a start!
i already travelled a lot and i'm really uncomplicated. I would also be happy to welcome somebody at my place once in a while.


well..i slept on several couches of all colours and shapes so far. but the first and only time I actually attended "couch surfing" was last summer in NY. me as a poor broke student (yes i'm from Switzerland but no that doesn't mean that we are all rich;) ) think that it's a very great idea to share each others appartments and so being able to come around the world without spending a fortune and at the same time meet new people.
so far it's been really great and I met a bunch of awesome people in NY, all very friendly and helpfull. first i thought i gonna use the couch surfging network as a one time thing just for travelling to NY but i liked it so much that will continue travelling that way for sure!


hmm many.
i love dancing - in clubs, on concerts, salsa, in the rain, on the street at 6am...
i love photography - especially analogue, eg. lomography, i have many different small and big cameras
i love water - sailing, swimming, surfing, or just sitting on a river/lake/ocean with a beer
i love travelling - everywhere, as far away as possible, get to know stories and histories from cultures all over the world
i love buildings - which is maybe not too bad cause i gonna be an architect, I like old buildings more than new ones
i love cities - as big and chaotic as possible, walking for hours alone through a city i don't know
i love the mountains - to have a great view, to be on top of the world, snowboard or ski, hiking

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

hard to pick ONE.......
the view from the tokyo tower over this huge city,
to fligh with a small plane over ayers rock at sunset,
visiting the abandoned spy station on teufelsberg,
nights in the thar desert - never seen so many stars,
drive through chaotic dheli by car for the first time with loud indian music playing
hopefully more to come.....

Teach, Learn, Share

i hate it to be a tourist in the common sense, means getting out of the bus, take a picture, stare at some famouse building and leave again. i rather like to visite places and cultures for a bit longer, stay with locals and adapt their way of living and thinking. so what ever anybody want's to share about their culture or themselves - language, cooking, traditions, history, hidden places, dances, music, .... i always enjoy to learn something new and also giving back some of my own huge amount of breathtakingly meaningfull knowledge and life experience! :P
