About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Now its all about finding the next adventure!

ABOUT ME

I like to hang arround with nice people talking about theyr experiences in travel and I love to listen to all kind of great storys and also enjoy to tell my own.

PHILOSOPHY

In a part of my life where I got the time and the energy to live my passion of traveling I decidet to keep going as long as it needs to satisfy the wish of seeing the whole world in me.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I had a great time in Puerto Princesa, Philippines. several people hosted me there and every day created a new stoty of my life and was where Couchsurfing began for me. Since than I surfed in Malaysia, Indonesia, Cambodia, Mexico, USA, Canada and Australia. And made new Friends along the way.

Interests

My passion is traveling but i also like to ride my Motorcycle or do creative things like painting, writing, and any other expression of arts and crafts. Recently I am into making Bracelets and creating "stamplike" Pics.
Since I moved to Berlin, urban exploring is sure one of my interrests. Walking trhough abandoned places, seeing smelling and touching history! its so wrong.. but it feels so right :D

Music, Movies, and Books

I love movies and songs that go in your head and stay inside. Media that makes you think and compare it with your situation. ButI can also enjoy a easy comedy movie with friends. Since my stay in Sihanoukville, Cambodia I discovered electro swing as a new genre for me.
