About Me

ABOUT ME

Since life goes on I change everyday a little bit from the other day.

I am a handsome guy with a good sense of humor. Did I mention handsome already?

Meet me in person and I can tell you a lot of things if you wanna hear them. Get to know to me as friend and I hope to be able to give what you can expect of a friend. Get to know to me as person and it could become complicated sometimes :)

An old friend of mine once told me that I am someone that either people like me or they dislike me but there's nothing in between. I found that interesting

PHILOSOPHY

Full throttle!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I know about traveling and therefore I want anyone who wanna stay for a couple of days at my place to have a good time and that things are as less complicated as possible.I try to give my best being either a good guest or host depending on in what kind of situation of life I am at the momentHow I participate? I always try to find a new way of the spirit of CouchSurfing.Concerning friends requests: I approve you as a friend when I feel that we have something in common and that I would like to meet you again.There's an article about me (in German):http://fudder.de/artikel/2011/07/20/der-couch-tourist-unter-polizeischutz-auf-dem-sofa/

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Quite a lot. I hosted a 100 people (20th of July 2014), most of them in Marseille/France and I've been couchsurfing for about 50 times at someone's place.Besides I participated and organized various cs-meetings e.g. city meetings or weekend gathering.I've been group moderator for the city Freiburg/Germany for a while.With the time the experiences are getting more and more, don't wanna list them all. Biggest event I am organizing at the moment: Check out the TravelMakers Project 2014 Travel Makers Project 2014 on Tripline
TravelMakers - Through the borders
Here is the documentary of our former Euroadtrip2012 Project. Enjoy!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

*I went for the Kimberley's in Western Australia
*I was born

Teach, Learn, Share

I understand the principal of couchsurfing as an inter cultural exchange which means that both sides give something and both sides learn something.
Rule#1 for me: My guest(s) have to feel good and comfortable!
