About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Travelling the Middle East

ABOUT ME

So the first thing to tell about me could be to tell that I really appreciate sociability . I like talking to friends, meet new people, having some beer. So nothing better than people PLUS beer :)I am also a more or less passionate E-bass player and enjoy to jam from time to time with other people. Due to my studies my band and me have stopped playing for a longer period of time. Some friends and me are also organizing frequent jam sessions in Marburg to support the local musician scence. So in case you've got some instruments, we could jam some tunes! Can play the guitar and some drum beats as well! If you come here, you can join my jam session in that music hall!

PHILOSOPHY

Enjoy the moment and be yourself. Do not pretend to convince other people of your qualities. Your best quality is to be unique on this planet!Discover life and people, that is the reason for living because you grow by making new experiences. Love other people as you love yourself...but do not forget to love yourself, otherwise you can hardly love someone else. Think positiv...life is to unique to waste time with considering the negative aspects. There are always good and great things to put your focus on and turn your life into a positive way

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

The longer I am an active member, the more I realize how great this project is. Even though the homepage has changed, it still remains a unique opportunity to link people every age and every nationality to meet, share their stories and experiences and to get a great insight thier lives, friends, families and neighbourhood.

So often, this gave me the chance to reflect about my life, my aims in live and my personality so I feel like there is no better way to grow your horizon than doing that.

I want to host and to surf as often as possible just to give other people the chance to learn from my experiences and in return to learn from them! I deeply hope for a positive future for this page!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I met many couchsurfers and they really made my trips a blast . Its the best way to travel in my opinion so I really like that more and more! Had a party on a speed boat in front of Miami skyline, cs with a skilled nightclub DJ from Pittsburgh, one crazy Polish guy who hosted the 6!! of us, got wasted, slept on the bare ground, stood up some hours later and just drove to work, had the pleasure to have an insight into Moroccan culture and some bars with a cs friend and many more unique stuff.

Most of the experience, I made so far, took palce in the states and I am gratefull for all the people I met, either both CS meetings in Chicago, hosting people here, or being hosted somewhere. For me, that makes CS a great and unique way to finde people who share similar attitudes and have a positiv and inspirational character. It's just great that every experience is different from every other, which makes it really exciting. I'm really looking forward to meet more CS on the trip with my girlfriend around the middle east!
