About Me

Me and my girlfriend live in an apartment in the center of Graz. We love traveling, hiking and doing sports together.

Dare to be great

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Traveling and hosting. We would love to learn to know people from all over the world and show them around in Graz and it's surroundings. We are also active members of the local CS community in Graz where we attend meetings. Recently, we held a presentation about our trip to India.


We went to Norway and Couch Surfing was the only possibility for us as all youth hostels were closed during that time. But we learned to know so many nice people via Couch Surfing and had experiences far beyond anything you could possibly buy. So we would love to do it again and host people from all over the world!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
