About Me


Get to know new people


I'm a 31 year old Ph.D. history student from Austria. I live near Graz, the capital of the green heart of Austria Styria...

Currently I am staying in Minneapolis,MN and work at the University of Minnesota.

I think I'm a very easy going person, who like to meet other people from all over the world. To me it's very important to see many different countries and meet interesting people...

Since a few years I became really addicted to all the Chinese Martial Arts, health and philosophical staff. I am practicing Tai Chi Chuan, Qi Gong and Chinese Medicine - which is really GREAT. I can tell you a lot of these things and how they can help you in your daily life...


To have no plan what I'll do in future - that's my plan!!!
It used to work pretty good so far - just it's freaking out a little bit my family ;)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I couchsurfed a lot in France and once in the USA but hosted sadly only once but that was awesome, met a very interesting guy from Bulgaria...


I'm really enjoying this project. It has given me back the faith in humanity...
Currently I've had couchsurfing experiences in France, but in future who knows...



Music, Movies, and Books

My favourite films:

There are a lot of good films:

Gladiator, Indien (Austrian film),Memento, Silence of the Lamps, Hannibal, Crank


Historical stories such as: Ken Follet The Pilars of the Earth

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

*)Listening to the silence in the Judah desert in Israel - the quietness was really tremendous. Since then I know why all mystics went to the desert
*)Canyoning in Slovenia
*)Hiking to a glacier in Norway
*)Roadtrip from Austria to Alesund,Norway and back
*)Couchsurfing at a chinese family in Queens, NYC
*)Travelling in South Africa
*)Stopping randomly on a beach in Corsica and having lunch at a beach restaurant - later finding out that it was one of the best to go places in whole France
*)Having dinner with a Prince in Swaziland
*)Doing the Edge Walk at the Toronto CN-Tower. I walked outside at 360 meters - pretty cool
