About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Travelling the world. Finding a place to settle.

ABOUT ME

Optimist/Opportunist. I don't like to complain or say "I wish I could". Make it happen. Change is good, and there's way less limits than we tend to think, once we start thinking outside of the box. I'm a talkitive and genuinly courious person. That's why I enjoy couchsurfing so much. Being among happy, relaxed people in some place entertaining, that's what I'm looking for. I love having random conversations and meeting new people with people who also love to socialize and widen their network.

What got me into couchsurfing was a trip to Berlin, where I easily found a host for a few nights, exactly when I needed one. It was a great experience, so I signed up here to add a few more of these moments to my life. Over the past 2 years, meeting and mostly hosting Surfers from all over the world has brought me many unforgetable moments and memories. I enjoyed hosting for a long time. Now it's my turn to travell and I hope that it will be as full of great experiences as my time hosting.

I really enjoy the experience of meeting different kind of people from different nations and cultures. Whenever I could, I tried to offer more then just a couch. Showing people around or having a beer at a nearby bar/lounge is always possible and it even helped me to see new places and find new sights in my hometown. I really got to know the place better.

I speak english, german and a few words french (Communicating with dutch people works somehow too).

I'm looking forward to having a new place I can call home some time in the future. Once I do, you are welcome to stop by :)

PHILOSOPHY

take your chances

And even if it's a quote and not my own words, I really like to go by this: “There is no passion to be found in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.” (Nelson Mandela)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I genrally like to share my couch with everyone who's interested and has no bad reputation. I refuse to host empty profiles.

I used to check the Emergency-Forum for Frankfurt / Airport every once in a while. Emergency hosting is a lot of fun.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Jumping out of a plane, seeing the Horizon from a height of almost 5000m and speeding towards the ground in free fall was truly amazing. A sunny day out on the bike also always is. +The unforgettable Rooftop-Pool-Party with my friends and fellow CSers in Singapore (See Gallery). +Sunsets on Barbados +Diving in Koh Bon

Willing to share, and willing to learn ;)
