About Me


Staying happy as I am - all my life... or being a unicorn!


Done with my studies in medicine. I want to become a doctor and do biomedical research at the same time.
I'm open-minded, tolerant, calm but talkative and very, very cheerful.
There is always a party going on in my head. I really love to laugh. And I don't judge... anyone, ever.

It is curiosity that led my way all my life and served me well.


Primum non nocere.
Live and let live.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I settled in to my new flat in Essen where I live with my girlfriend now. We will be setting up a couch soon for people to crash on.


I only surfed once but I met a lot of people who received me at their home and treated me like family. Especially being new to Melbourne and knowing nobody I attended a lot of the gatherings and tried to give impulse myself.
This resulted in me cooking dinner at other peoples places, going on trips or just having a marvellous time with interesting people.


Priority: Cooking and dancing! Both at the same time if possible... ^^

Theater, movies, exhibitions, parties and concerts. My friends are very important to me, so I also enjoy evenings hanging out and just talking. This also extends to new people I meet.
Physical acitivities: hiking and snowboarding.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Morning in the Bavarian Alps. 2000 m altitude. Dawn. -4°C outside. Crawled out of the tent. Saw the Mountains. Heard the Farmers blow the alphornes.

Teach, Learn, Share

I think I can't teach anything because I lack expertise in any field I dug into. Sharing is a better word for it. But that is what I really love to do - when asked to. ;) I believe that anything I see or hear can teach me something especially other people's point of view.
