About Me


renovating an old farmhouse


I am full of energy, love to enjoy every moment of life and meeting people from all over the world.


Leave the world just a little bit better than I found it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


After surfing many couches, it is time to pay back. I like to meet new people, learning about cultures and showing people my beautyful country.


I heard about couchsurfing from travellers in south east asia and i found it a great idea. So I surfed couches in North and Central America and it is one of the best ideas.


I like all kind of sports and I can not imagine a live without sport. I like Running, Cycling, Mountainbiking, Hiking, Paragliding, Skiing,Gymnastics and much more.
I don't think its really a Sport, but i also like to ride my motorbike.
I love to be in the nature and all kind of outdoor activities.
