About Me




Some people use to call me Bambi... I guess, I'm probably as curious and full of ideas as this young, little deer that jumps through the woods all day. The difference with me, though, is that I like hopping from city to city and discover new worlds, cultures and of course its people.

The dilemma herewith is that I don't quite see how there should be enough time and opportunities to visit all those beautiful places and people on this planet.

I appreciate and enjoy the liberties of today and try to keep my mind free and peaceful.

I have no set-up life plan, but I aspire to become a journalist. The writing work fulfills me with joy and gives me a feeling of contributing to the sense-making process of all the happenings in this world. My mission is basically to enlighten people. And I'm always happy to be enlightened by others :)


live now.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


To be honest, I'm quite new to the CS Project. However, I love to get to know new people and I want more guys to visit and discover the beauty of the cities that might not belong to the most popular in this world. So, dear CS-friends, feel free to stop by and see the city. I'd be glad to host ya!
