About Me


Carpe Diem!


My name is Tom, I'm 20 years old and I just started to travel after I finished high school in Germany. Right now I'm visiting Canada for a gap year with a work and travel visa, which allows me to work because it comes with a valid work permit. I can stay here for at least one year, but I'm not sure yet when I'm going to leave.
I'm an open-minded, outgoing person which is reliable and clean. I want to get to know new people, new places and new cultures & to increase my English skills - at least that's why I decided to leave Germany for a certain time. I never hosted people but I really like the whole idea of couchsurfing and I want to start hosting in Germany when I get the possibility.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm still new to couchsurfing - and I'm travelling trough Canada at the moment.
When I'm back in Dresden I want to start hosting people, too. I can't imagine a better way to get to know new people and give the community something back since I surfed at some places and met some amazing people myself. If you want to stay with me, try it again in August 2013, I'll be back in Germany then.


So far I surfed in
New York City
Los Angeles


(German/European) policy, literature, sports (especially biking), (Canadian) nature, culture and wildlife, getting in contact with people, travelling, festivals, skiing, chess, reading, food and culture, music.
I would say everything that expands my horizon. I want to meet new people, show them my hometown, explore new places and find friends!
