About Me


Bring Team Physalis to the rest of the world!


Heyho, we (Nora and Simon) are two young, funny and nice dudes from Germany. Simon has a Bachelor of science in Biology and we are both working with mindly and physiclly disabled people in an assisted living group. We assist in the evening, in the night and in the morning... than we go home and sleep till noon xD.

We listen to handmade music, like Punkrock or Rock or Heavy Metal but both of us can't hurt a fly ;)

Simons hair is blond and Noras hair changes its colour every couple of weeks. We lived for 3 Years (Simon) and nearly 2 years (Nora) in Hamburg. If u give Nora a cup of coffee she run crazy and is jumping around like a bouncing ball. Simon instead needs coffee in the morning to know where he is and where he has to go...

We both like to go out in the evening, dancing, drinking, having fun and hang around with nice people. Oh, and beer is very yummy... :)

Together we are Team-Physalis, watch us and follow our journey around the world on


The tragedy is that u make experiences only after u needed them xD... so shit happends.

Think pink and be positive!

It's not easy to deside when u have to think bevor u act and when its the other way round...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Nora and Simon (writing right now), we have a big project. We want to surround the word in one year! We are Team Physalis and our journey will start in Germany, continues in Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore, than to Australia and Argentina. Than we travel to Brazil, Bolivia, Paraguay, Mexico and finally we go to the USA before we go back to Germany. So we leave our house to the east side and come back from the west side. For me, it will be the first big journey in my life. I mean, before i was in a lot of countries in europe, but never went further than spain. When i was a child, me and my sister and my parents we traveled every summer with our caravan to another country and had nice vaccations. In this years i got into camping life, and i loved it.

On our big trip we will try backpacking and make a mix between couchsurfing and going to youth hostels oder we sleep under a bridge, who knows.

Nora already went far away like Brazil, Mexico or Guatemala when she was a child. Although she has grandparents at Teneriffa.


Only good ones.

we are full energy and power and wanna make much experiences, yeehaa!


Simon is interessted in nature, politics and music, sometimes critical about society, he plays guitar and loves listening to good music, he likes to hang out with friends and talk nonsense or imagine crazy things and he is interessted in meeting foreign people, countries, landscapes and cultures. Additional he likes to cook more than just water. Even if he is not the most active guy in things like doing sports, he likes to climb on buildings or other urban stuff. And he likes campfires.

Nora plays bass in a punkband and she is very sociable and likes to make party and hang out with friends or interessting people. She is interessted in what way our society goes and she likes to cook yummy and healthy as well. Although she rides snowboards like hell and she is interessted in tattoos and percings.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Once Simon saw a little meteor burning in the atmosphere and he said it made a huge and terrifying noise...
Althought he and his team made the 9. place in the beer-athlon 2012.

Noras life is fantastic... and she was part of it until yet

Teach, Learn, Share

I can tell u a lot of interessting things about nature, biology and animals or plants, i studied this stuff... Although Nora can teach you how to belch on command

Simon wants to learn a lot of other cultures and find common things and he wants to practise his english and become a better english-speaker. And Nora wants to learn surfing.
