About Me

i am an open, friendly person, interested in a lot of things in life and our environment. i like to discuss all topics, get to know other people's views and want to see behind the facade. and i have a great, incisive almost tall daughter. she lives alternately for a week with me and her mother and we raise her together. but we don't live together as partners anymore, that didn't work out. but as parents we think we are very good :-)

next to my job I like very much, I play rugby, a sport that fascinates me and which I want to do as long as my bones last!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

to get in touch with other people, who can show me their little world.
i don't want couchsurfing because it's cheaper, but because i experienced the interesting things there and hope to experience even more of them. i'm not the classic tourist who runs from hotspot to hotspot. i don't want to travel like a local, but rather live like a local.

Music, Movies, and Books

i used to read all the karl may books, i liked his idea of the wild west, the wild orient.
in the meantime i read more sophisticated books, i find the current swiss authors very interesting.

christian kracht - ich werde hier sein im sonnenschein und im schatten
peter stamm - an einem tag wie diesem
joachim mayerhoff - alle toten fliegen hoch

i like - of course - a lot of netflix series and scandinavian crime films
