About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Thirty years of rock and roll!

ABOUT ME

I would describe myself as a very outgoing person, loving to meet people from all over the world, learn about their ways of life, their thinking, their beliefs. I like to learn about other cultures and pick out the best ideas to bring it back to Germany.
I love nature very much. I want to know everything about plants and animals and how to protect them. I think there's no more important thing in the world than protecting our environment!
I would like to get to know people via couchsurfing, sharing the great idea of hosting people from all over the world and give my couch back in return, so that people can learn about Germany. My door shall be opened for everyone with a peaceful mind and an open mind for other cultures!

PHILOSOPHY

I think that everything that you give in life comes back one time. If you are friendly and open minded, helping other people and trying to understand their thinking, they will give it all back to you. We should share more things in life. Not only items but moments, feelings.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

To surf and to let surf... :)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I heared about couchsurfing for the first time when I was traveling australia for half a year. I met one guy that traveled around the world for three years with virtually no money just with couchsurfing. That totally fascinated me and so I wanted to become a member of this community as well. Now I want to start collecting experiences with it!

Interests

I love going to the movies, theatre and concerts of all kind from rock to church organ. I also like to go to festivals, such as "Fusion" or "3000° Festival".

Music, Movies, and Books

I love all kinds of music, popular, rock, electronic...
I love going to the movies, that's a very big obsession of mine! The motorcycle diaries of Che Guevara is the movie that inspired my wish to go to south america the most! I love books of Paolo Coelho, he's dreaming such nice dreams!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

One of the most amazing things I experienced in the world is when I was standing at the cliffs of Byron Bay, the most eastern point of the australian mainland one day. Looking down on a wonderful blue sea I was watching dolphins surfing the waves and jumping in joy and playing with each other-that was an overwhealming moment and I got goosebumps!
I also learned diving in Byron bay and later worked on a diving boat in the great barrier reef later on. Diving is one of the most beautiful experiences I ever made! Life is so colorful and rich under the surface! Moving free like an astronaut and beeing part of this underwater-wonderland makes you wish to stay there forever. Swarms of fish around you, sharks peacefully and elegantly passing by looking into your eyes with curiousity, following turtles nibbling on corals...all that is so wonderful! All the life on our planet came from the sea one day and it's still so unexplored and mystic, that's so amazing to me!

Teach, Learn, Share

All poeple are the same, all people are world citizens. We only have this one world and only one short life. We should try to live it in peace and with respect for each other and for our environment. We should protect our world and conserve it for coming generations. We should get back to a less materialistic way of life, care more about our family and others and be more satisfied with what we have and not always want more, more, more. We should share what we got and only take as much as we need. Everyone should take a look into the mirror and make that change!
