I enjoy traveling on low budget - hitchhiking, sleeping anywhere in nature on the way. I live on a sailboat as it is a way to be in nature and yet save on rent. One thing that I'm really passionate about is breaking concepts and finding ways to do things differently.
My mission is to prepare my sailboat for the ocean while finishing my PhD and then sailing away to the unknown. My dream is to share my boat with artists and other researchers while traveling with it around the world.
I'm into Tibetan Buddhism, I like both meditation and the philosophy. I am convinced that everyone is responsible for the situation (s)he is in, meaning that one can always live a happy meaningful life regardless of the circumstances.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Exploring whatever is out there.
- budget travel

- wild camping
- alternative living
