About Me


Enjoy Life


I've just recently finished my studies in Germany and in the USA with a master of business administration and engineering. Sounds boring but the past 6 years were the best time of my life. I now work full time, but I enjoy as much free time as possible and like to travel the world. The best part of traveling is meeting the locals and becoming submerged in a new culture as I could experience in the US. Leaving all belongings behind and just moving somewhere new is an amazing feeling :)


Life is good. We are the lucky ones.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Just freshly moved to Hannover and try to get settled, so at the moment I wont have a couch available but I would very much like to get to know the couchsurfing community.


I have couchsurfed with a few people in London,Oslo, Vienna, and with a really nice guy in Chicago before and love the idea of sharing a roof with trustworthy strangers from the same community.


My friends, bicycles (mountain and road), winter sports, traveling, all kinds of weather, the USA, meeting new people, music, cooking (im absolutely not good at it but enjoy it with other ppl), laughing ;)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The Twin Falls area in Kakadu National Park in the Northern Territory of Australia is the most beautiful location I have ever been to. On the top of the water fall plateau there were pure swimming holes that were still completely untouched by humans. One day I want to go back there and feel the amazing environment again.
