About Me


To make me a better person and the world a better place.


My best friends may would describe me as extremely principled. Sometimes it must be annoying for them, hearing me talk about their cruel eating habits etc. But as a vegetarian I try to make the world better step by step. It is okay for me that other people eat fish, meat and other stuff but I try to teach them how to do it in a strategical and sustainable way. I am sure some of my friends and especially my family changed some manners in the last few years because they learned how they can follow their lifestyle without harming mother earth that much. Nonetheless I try to live my life and let others live their life in their way. I´m always changing. Step by step to perfection :D


"Simplify, simplify, simplify" - Henry David Thoreau

"Live as sustainable as possible - Me :D

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


In the following 1.5 years I will travel Australia and, hopefully, Asia. If possible I will use the service of couchsurfing from time to time and when I come back to Germany and have an own flat I am really looking forward to host some people.


For now: None.


I am interested in literature, philosophy, movies, traveling, journalism, people, conversation and nature. There is a lot more, but - as everyone who has made experiences with listing ALL of his or her interests can understand - it is very difficult to outline the most important ones.
So let´s talk about interests when we meet ;)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I´ve lived autarkically from civilization for one week, eating only the things i found in the woods, sleeping in a shelter I built etc.

I´ve built an igloo, big enough to celebrate New Year´s Eve in it.

I´ve danced the whole night on a portable toilet at the biggest of Germany´s festivals.

Teach, Learn, Share

I think we are learning and teaching within every conversation we have with foreign people.
