About Me

I'm a pretty open-minded person that loves travelling and meeting interesting people from different cultures. Experiencing new things makes me feel alive!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I am offering our couch also because I have the feeling that I have to give something back after surfing on a few couches and being welcomed by so many hospitable and great Couchsurfers!


* hiking and being outdoors
* meeting interesting people from different cultures and with different points of view
* dogs
* writing (published my first book in 2011)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

One of the most amazing experiences I have done was walking 1600km of the Camino de Santiago for almost 10 weeks in 2012 - and then walking more than 900km of the Camino again in 2013. Difficult if not impossible to describe life on the Camino, you really have to experience it yourself.

Teach, Learn, Share

I am sure I can learn from about everybody I met, meet or will meet in my life!! I love meeting people with special interests, people that have something they find exciting to do - most of the times I like to hear more about their passion and get to know more about "their world".

What could I teach you... well, some German or Portuguese, psychology and a lot about dog behavior and training for sure ;-) If you share my idea that we all can learn something only by the experience of meeting each other, then I am sure you can learn even more than that!
