I am a teacher and I like teaching - there is only one better thing: beeing taught new things by new people in new countries. I am very curious and adventurous and I like change.
In life it's all about doing things at the right time in the right place.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Making friends all over the world.
I have been travelling since I was a child. With ten years I visited my aunt in Spain for the first time. In former days - before a genius invented couchsurfing - travelling without internet was much more complicated and less rewarding.
Traveling: deserts, vulcanoes, rain forests, cities -
sports: mountainbiking, hiking, cross country skiing -
cooking, plants, learning languages, psychology, getting to know new people and countries, art and foreign cultures.
Music, Movies, and Books
Movies from Pedro Almodovar to Gene Roddenbery - I am interested in all categories of movies except in horror.
I love music from all over the world, such as Indonesian Gamelan, Australian Dideridoo or Bolivian flute, percussion and drums I like most.
I am enjoying Austrian and German literature, books about psychology and philosophy, such as "Robin Skynner, John Cleese: Life and how to survive it" or "Allan and Barbara Pease: Why men lie and women cry".
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Attending the Cooking school in Luang Prabang (Laos), seeing Rafflesia arnoldii on Sumatra, studying cacti in Latinamerica, climbing the active volcano Pacaya (Guatemala), climbing Huayna Potosi (6088m) and talking with Bolivian women at lake Titicaca (Bolivia)...
Teach, Learn, Share
Teaching: economics, literature, psychology, philosophy, languages.
