About Me


I will be traveling around in south-eastern europe in august and september. I start with the European Rainbow Gathering in Greece and will go to Bulgaria and Turkry afterward, might be with (longer) stops in Albania, FYR Mazedonia and certainly Kosovo.


I spend 3 days a week in the office and programm database based applications. But this is not my passion (though I definitivly can't say I hate computer programming).

Here in Berlin, I am living in a housing-cooperative with around 20 people.

If I am not travelling, I spend much of my time in alternative projects: I live part time in kind of eco-village near Erkner around 30km from city-center of Berlin.

I like doing practical stuff like working with wood, repairing bikes.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


We often host guests on our site. I stay with couchsurfing host sometimes. It always was a nice experience.


- spending time in the nature when ever possible
- DIY stuff (wood, electronics,..)
- travelling, festivals
- visiting old towns, politics (i was active in the germasn anti nucleare movement for long time), history,...

Music, Movies & Books

I like reading books and watching film about the history of the 20th century (cold war,...)

I like Scifi movies and tv soaps (Star Trek, Jericho, Babylon5,...).

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I was travelling in eastern europe in the last summers for many weeks. And I get more and more in love with this part of the world every time.
I stayed on the Europena Rainbow Gathering for some days in last summer and will be staying on this year's one for nearly two weeks.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach:
- reparing bicycles
- much computer stuff (linux, SQL,...)
- some electronics

I want to share:
- experiences with other travellers
- come in contact people from different cultures
- concepts and ideas for living together in communities, housing cooperatives, ecovillages,..

I want to learn:
