About Me

Make the most of Kiel's winter & doing short trips as often as possible

I'm a 27 year old student of German and English. But honestly, I prefer doing my side-jobs at University and as a freelancer for the the local newspaper. I'm writing articles about sports and from time to time, I also work at a bar/club. I'm open-minded and always excited to meet and get to know new people. I'm an active person as I like travelling, doing sports, go partying or just doing stuff with my friends.

If you want to relax, I just let you calm down at our flat, have a coffee and leave you your free space and time. If you're in the mood of exploring the city, I can show you around and we can have a beer together.
In genereal: Treat other people like you want to be treated yourself - friendly and helpful :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I hitchhiked through many European countries and met so many friendly, caring and especially hospitable people along the way. It doesn't matter if it's Sweden, Romania or Greece - Europe is one and people should meet!

For example, I once became stranded in Brussels when I hitchhiked there with a good friend. We got picked up by a friendly girl and stayed at her place for two days. We just asked her on the street. This was such a nice experience that I just wanted to give something back by offering a couch at my own place!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I hitchhiked through many different countries, met many interesting people and had a good time on european streets, villages and cities. On the way back, a cool dude took us in his old Landrover an we drove with him for over a 1000km through Macedonia, Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Montenegro, Croatia and Slovenia.
