About Me

ashtanga yoga - trying to fit a daily practice into my working life as a medical doctor :)


always curious about the world with a passion for travelling. open-minded and warmhearted, always ready to try out new things, meet new people and make good friends. I'd say i am a tolerant and relaxed, yet outgoing person with a thirst for adventure. i could spend a day hanging around in a cafe for hours or chilling outside in a park somewhere with a bunch of friends, but just aswell you might find me hiking or camping in the wilderness and travelling the world. oh yeah, and i love cooking and drinking wine :)


i am a tolerant person and i feel like there is always a way to understanding and accepting a different lifestyle. i hate injustice, intolerance and prejudices. i want to keep an open mind.

whatever works.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


i have heard of couchsurfing several years back, when a friend in aachen invited me to a couchsurfing event and we had an amazing evening spent in a park with loads of people from all over the world.


i have surfed on a couple of couches while travelling through south america and india and love this way of experiencing a new place and meeting new people. i've had the best times while couchsurfing and i wouldn't want to miss out on any of these encounters.
