About Me

I'm finally living my dream, moving through the world and working remotely as a journalist and copywriter. After getting a rushed view of a lot of beautiful places by traveling to every continent before I turned 26 , I am taking my time now and try to be more of a local than a traveler. I like good stories and long conversations about everything and nothing that make you loose track of time, rooftops, Black Russians (the drink, I have no opinion on the ethnicity), very late breakfasts and that certain feeling that everything is possible.
I'm almost vegetarian, can't stand the taste of beer (almost every other alcoholic beverage is fine though) and try to live a conscious life.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Travel Karma, great stories and amazing experiences


I love to travel (already mentioned that I think), to explore cities and chill at beaches, go on safaris and cruises, hang out with travellers and locals, have long conversations over a glass (or bottle) of wine, read, cook and eat good food, go out, bingewatch TV-shows and let others enthuse me for their passion

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Become location independent

Teach, Learn, Share

The best stories stay hidden unless you ask the right questions and listen the right way

Little hint: If you plan on bringing a gift, anything (vegetarian) cooking related would be supercool (spices, wine, exotic ingrediences)

Please start your message with naming your favorite country - because I wanna know and also because I wanna know if you've read that far through my profile :)

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can cook and bake, I know a lot about healthy diets, and I can teach you some German (if you for some reason feel the urge to learn it). I can also tell you about what went well and not so well on previous trips of mine (but at some point it's sort of hard to shut me up on that because there is so much to talk about)
