About Me

I have been travelling around a lot since I have been very small. I stayed a year in England and Sweden, did several workcamps in Iceland, Russia and Kenya and always tried to meet new people.
Born in Berlin (which people mostly forget), stayed there for 20 years and then moved to Dresden in September 2006. Since then lived in Munich and Bremerhaven for a couple of months and got back to Dresden in November 2013.

New in Mainz since July 2015 and hoping to make some friends here and explore the surroundings together :) I'm really up for hiking and hope I can do it as much as possible.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Most people say that I have been pretty active in the Dresden/Munich group. I try to answer questions and help out whenever its possible as I would love to get the same feedback when I'm visiting or new in another town and/or country.

Being in Mainz which is not completely new to me, helping out will not be so easy in the beginning but always trying my best :)


So far i have just hosted one person in Uppsala for a night and 2 people in Dresden. Unfortunately my living situation was not so good to host anyone since a while.
Besides hosting people i attend CS regular meetings and activities as often as i can.
I have been active in the CS groups in Uppsala, Munich, Bremerhaven and Dresden and now in Mainz.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I have been on a glacier walk in Norway on the Briksdalsbreen for 2 hours and had the "luck" to see people falling down into the glacier....sounds weird but I like glaciers so much that it was very interesting to see what is done when people really fall into it.
