About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Born to travel!

ABOUT ME

As far as I can describe myself, I am a relaxed and easy-going guy, who always tries to be polite and helpful. Being sociable as much as I can, I am very curious concerning other people and their many exciting actvities and adventures by travelling. I just like people, who can share nice travel experiences with me.

I am a passionate hitchhiker, so that you can consider me as a very spontaneous person. I am humourous (I adore black humour). When I feel very well and safe amongst people, I laugh a lot. But I can also be calm and thoughtful.

I am a pretty ordinary person, but I have many interests so that I live in a quite alternative and individual way.

PHILOSOPHY

"Nutze jede Chance, denn du weißt nie, ob du sie ein zweites Mal kriegst!"

"Use every chance you get'cause you never know whether you get another one"

One Amazing Thing I've Done

the only TRABANT (car from the former east germany) in Ireland (april 2011)

traffic jam on the highway between Lyon and Marseille because of an accident which a ghost driver and 3 other cars were envolved in. We were hitchhiking and arrived 20 minutes later at the traffic jam. Thank god, that we were sitting in the right car (march 2012).

"Free Hugs" activity in London (april 2013) with many other Couchsurfers. It is so easy to get an afternoon full of piece and love between the strangers :-) (april 2013)

Tramprennen 2014 to Macedonia - fund-raising campaign for drink water projects in India (www.tramprennen.org)
