About Me


to find a life


I'm overearnest and manic; ambitious and lazy, there is also a kind of black humour and a fixed portion of sarcasm in me. I'm clumsy and as friends often say: a tiny little bit confused.. but if I try hard I can also be the opposite.. sometimes.. if I really am trying hard.
I love it to meet "new": people, food, places whatever
Also i like it to sit with friends in Bars or cafés or on the floor of somewhere in the world and talk. just talk.


I don't have a special philosophy but.. "Was du nicht willst das man dir tut das füg auch keinem andren zu"
similarly: Treat as you wish to be treated.
I think one should be open for everything. Only after trying what you don't know you can say whether you liked it or not.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


If you're my guest think of me as a familymember. My home is your home. my friends are yours.


WOW!! Couchsurfing is soo great.
Our first guest "brought" us new Books ("you should read that!!") and Cheburaschka, the next two guests some sweets from Italy and the word "sfiga" ;)
The couchsurfing-people are really open minded and I love that!!
On the Italian-German Meeting in Wiesbaden it was absolutely easy to get in contact with sooo many people. It is a pleasure to be a part of such an great community!

I wrote that 2008
And it went on and on like this, you always get some new experiences and you always give some. What i experienced in the last years gave me a new and better look on the world and on people!

thank you all!!


Books, they are like drugs
climbing, hiking, swimming, biking and Yoga
travelling and theatre

there is so many.. i'm interessted in so many things but i'm not well educated in them.. sounds strange.. for example: I love to go to the theatre but i do not know the names of famos theatre actors or directors..

so please everyone let me know what you know!! I try my very best to give you something back you like or need or which just makes you happy! :D

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Seen.. Syria, the Cliffs of Moher in Ireland (before they make Beton on it!), Carcassonne (France), Prague, Tehran without Smog ;), Ani (Turkey)

Done.. don't know hmm.. as I was a little child I put a whole can of NIVEA Creme on my hair cause I thougt: What is good for the body is best for the hair. It took several weeks to get "normal" hair again and my mother was near a mental breakdown... amazing!! ;)

seen and done: I walked the Camino del Norte 2010 and it was amazingly beautyful! i lived in Iran for 10 months and that was quite an experience.

Teach, Learn, Share
