About Me

I love small adventures, that's why I'm still not going to Uni, after I finished high school in 2013. When i finished high school, i went to Canada to work and to travel in North and Central America. This trip took me 1 year. Actually it gave me 1 year! :) it was my first big adventure and i expected nothing because i didn't know what to expect so it turned out to be the best time of my life so far.

I have lots of storys to tell, and I love it to share them and to listen to yours. But the coolest thing is, that while we share our storys and do other stuff, we live in and create a whole new story that we can tell the next person! It's crazy, I know :D

I gotta be honest, I am what you might call an introvert. That doesn't mean that you can't have fun with me or that I'm not able to hold a good conversation, it just means I'm not that extroverted like most of the travelers I met on my way. ;)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

I love it to meet people you probably wouldn't meet in a 'normal' life. People where you know you have at least one thing in common, whether it's traveling, the desire to meet new people or just an empty wallet.

I think most of the Couchsurfers are people who want to give without expecting to get something back in first place, and that is something that I really appreciate. When CSers are on travels they usually run on a very low budget and it's not always possible for us to give something back to the people that host us, but we should all try to help and to give something to the next person, for example host them when we return, to create a circle or network of CSers helping each other.

People are more important than the place. What I mean is: when you are at a beautiful place and you have shitty people around you, you will always remember that place in a negative matter. But when you are at a shitty place and you have nice people surrounding you, you will always look back with a smile!

Interests

Of course I am interested in traveling and meeting new people. Sports that I do are biking, inline skating, sailing, drive a motor boat and a little bit of Workout.

Music, Movies & Books

Music is great. Sometimes when I sit on the couch and I don't feel good and I am wondering why, then I just turn on some music and I'm doing better :)

I don't really read much. I don't know why but usually I fall asleep after a few pages. But when I read it's non-fiction.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

A 15.000 km road trip with three of my buddies

Teach, Learn, Share

I would like to learn about others culture, the food, the music, how the people dress and so on. Also I would like to teach this things from Germany and countries I have visited to you! And I love it to share and clarify prejudices that our countries have from one another. I love beer and sauerkraut, that's just true.
