About Me

I would describe myself as easygoing, I enjoy meeting new people at events like the Couchsurfing-meets where you get to know different people, their experiences, their views, etc.

Growing up, I moved around quite a bit and lived in different countries but there are still a lot of places left unexplored that I would love to visit.

I love good food and wine, unfortunately I'm not a very talented cook, but I very much enjoy eating which makes me a perfect match for anyone who can actually cook ;)

For about two years now I have owned a dog called Filo. He's a friendly terrier-mix who loves humans and is quiet and calm. Travelling with him is a whole new experience but luckily he is very adaptable so it's also a lot of fun.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

In my opinion the best way to get to know a travel destination is to have a local or someone who's lived there for a while show you around or give you "inside information" on the best places to visit.

That's why I joined CS to meet locals when I spent a few months in Canada and I am immensely thankful because it truly enriched my experience to meet some very kind/cool/interesting people

Unfortunately I didn't have the chance to host during my first few years on this site since it wasn't possible at the place where I lived before. But now I moved to Tübingen (in October '16) and would be happy to host and discover the town with travellers!

Interests

I've been horseback riding since I was about 8 and enjoy using and learning methods of natural horsemanship.

Photography is another long-time hobby of mine so if you're a photo-enthusiast as well, it would be fun to go on photo-walks together :)

Music, Movies, and Books

I enjoy singer-songwriter or ballad-type music such as Passenger, James Bay, Zaz, Simon & Garfunkel, Mark Knopfler...
However to keep myself awake while driving there are plenty of guilty-pleasure-pop songs to which I like to sing along... loudly ;)

Some expamples for favorite movies are Lost in Translation, As good as it gets, Julie & Julia, Fried green Tomatoes and Pride and Prejudice (don't judge me :-P)

Books... Wow. Many.
First of all I'm a big, HUGE, Harry Potter fan. (Just the books though)
I enjoyed most of the John Irving novels I've read so far, especially A Prayer for Owen Meany.
Lord of the Rings (big fan of both the books and the movies), Martin Suter novels, Dick Francis novels and others I can't think of right now... I'm always grateful for tips on good reads!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Ok, it's not THAT amazing but during my student-days in Göttingen I worked as a bike-messenger which, for me, was definitely a very fun and cool job as well as being a good (and paid!) work-out :)

Teach, Learn, Share

I like to practice languages, so if anyone would like to help me freshen up my Spanish, French, Italian, English, (or teach me a new language!) that would be great. In exchange I can offer native-language-knowledge in German.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I make great Gin and Tonics and my dog could show off a few fun tricks :)
