About Me


First day of Spring- I keep thinking about- the end of autum.
Matsu Basho


Reisen, Reisen, Reisen, ...
Travelling, travelling, travelling...

Dear Couchsurfers,
back in Lübeck from our 2nd world trip, was a 2 year trip.

It`s been 10 month in South Amerika, 3 month in Nepal, some weeks in Myanmar and Thailand, then India (Kumh Mela, Goa and Kerala).
New Zealand for the 2nd time until June for 3 month.
Sydney, KL, Sulawesi, Borneo, some more Malaysia, Sumatra, Japan, Seoul ...

We are keen hikers and like to do a lot of trekking, but
getting to know the country and people is most of the fun to us.

We love to get to know you! Get in touch :-)
We are happy to meet you!!
Ute & Matthias

Be happy!

NVC (M.B. Rosenberg) Non violent comunication
is very important for us.

To feel your body and soul as often, as possible.

Enjoing life.
