About Me

CURRENT MISSION

...saving money for the next big adventure! ;)

ABOUT ME

Hi, we are Patrick and Sonja from Hamburg, Germany! We love to travel & discover new cultures! Getting to know new people from all over the world is always so refreshing â

PHILOSOPHY

We feel responsible for this wonderful world we are living in so we always try to “break new ground” and find new ways of how to give “Mother Earth” something back!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Listening, learning & sharing!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

We've couchsurfed a lot recently and we love it! We know how much organisation and effort it takes to host & that it also costs money (toiletries, water, etc.). That's why we always try to return the favour by washing the dishes, cooking, painting, cleaning... whatever! :)

So, for us it goes without saying to be clean, save energy when can, be silent at night and leave the house when the host does. We don't smoke and always adapt to the host's house rules. If our host is busy with work, we find our way around town ourselves.

And we expect the same from CSers who stay at our place! Everyone we met was so nice and caring! And what we like most: everybody has its own background and shared their interesting experiences with us! It’s such a joy to be part of this network of “give and take”!

Interests

We love traveling! We prefer to be outside - preferably in the sun! Everything that has to do with water is part of our interest: swimming, sailing, surfing and listening to the sound of the ocean! Street-art, photography and live music attracts us the same way like good food does! :)
We are up for every new adventure and love to experience new things!
