About Me

CURRENT MISSION

enjoying life, figuering out where to that best

ABOUT ME

I'd say I'm a quite uncomplicated, open minded person with lots of different interests.
Usually in good mood, having positive thoughts :)
I love being outdoors (doesn't really matter if there's anything special to do)
I love doing sports (outdoor and indoor), taking photos or just sitting somewhere drinking a coffee and simply enjoying life :)

PHILOSOPHY

"If there's no solution, there must be no problem"

Bonaparte - Too Much

"It's the possibility of having a dream come true that's making a life interesting"

Paulo Coelho - The Alchemist

"They say, that the journey can be more important than the destination.
In mountainbiking there is no destination; just a bike, a rider and a place to ride..."

The Collective - Roam

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I think this is the perfect opportunity to get along in the world for little money or/and get to know really interesting people from all over the world.
This is the perfect tool to really improve understanding among nations.
So I'm really looking forward to do something for this community when I'm back in Friedrichshafen or settled somewhere else.
If it's possible somehow I'll - for sure - offer a sleeping opportunity or at least a nice coffee...

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

None at the moment, but there should be enough time to make some experiences... ;)

Interests

It's all about having a life :)

going to concerts, drinking a nice coffee, having a good time with friends, doing sports, being outdoors, just chilling, reading a book or just listening to music, to be continued almost endlessly ;)

Music, Movies & Books

Movies:
all of Iñárritu, LA Crash, Paradise Now, The Motorcycle Diaries, Very Bad Things (black comedies in general ;)) but sometimes just well made action films (recently saw Shoot Em Up and found it really entertaining)
Watching some sport movies is always great as well

Music:
reaches from chilly electro sounds (like Air, St.Germain), over all sorts of alternative rock music (like Feeder, K's Choice, The FooFighters, U2, Travis, REM, The Dresden Dolls, Muse, ...) to hard, fast & aggressive Hardcore & Punk (like Agnostic Front, BoySetsFire, Ignite, The Cavalera Conspiracy, Rise Against, The Unseen, System Of A Down)
long story short: anything that can be named "good music" and mostly not really mainstream ;)
...and keen on new bands, sounds, concerts......

books:
shuffling wildly between funny, thrilling and serious... always open to new suggestions :)

One Amazing Thing I've Done

doing the dive course was really amazing, but it's often the small things that come together to make something amazing.
perhaps I have to update this once in a while :)

Teach, Learn, Share

that's hard to tell at the moment.
Those things happen or take place when meeting other people and being open to their points of views and their way of living

Countries I've Visited

Austria, Egypt, France, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, United Kingdom

Countries I've Lived In

Germany
