About Me


Enjoying life


Hello everyone,

I'm a friendly and open person.
Originally from Dortmund, which is in the Ruhrgebiet. It is not the prettiest place as it used to be an industrious region, but it has THE BEST PEOPLE in the world. Actually I'm somewhat of a globettrotter though as travelling is a passion of mine and also my current job. I also like sports such as surfing and snowboarding. I just like being in the outdoors.
So far, I have couchsurfed and hosted a few times. I love the idea to share your home and heart to strangers who eventually become friends. Pay it Forward!


Pay it forward

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


by signing up and writing people :)


I've had one couch surfing experience in Paris, and was hosted by a great American family during my exchange year.


I'm especially interested in people, sports, languages, reading good books, travelling, just anything fun really.
