About Me


live and let live, stay alive, learning about aging


I´m not a special one. I´m not a man without qualities. I think I´m quite normal. Day and Night. Less driven than in my former years. More balanced.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I´m the father of a lovely daughter who was travelling and working around the world and enjoyed to meet different and interesting people couchsurfing. If you don´t fear an old man come on and test my couch.


Till now hosting. Perhaps I will dare couchsurfing when I will be old enough (70+)


Hear. See. Feel. Think. Eat. Drink. Move. Smell. Taste. Aware.

Old fashioned, isn´t it? And then I hope every time for something new and surprising

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I had three most impressing moments in lifetime; one of them (perhaps the most romantic one) was a night with a giant full moon in a Wadi in the Negev/Israel. I piped and danced with the daughter of a friend a waltz.
