About Me

CURRENT MISSION

finding a new job after having traveled for a year, giving back the hospitality I recieved during that time

ABOUT ME

Nice but sometimes confused vegan guy who has a tendency to think (too) much.
I'm always curious to learn new things and skills and to get to know other people, places and cultures.

PHILOSOPHY

Don't do anything to other creatures that you wouldn't want to be done to you.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

For those who ask me for accommodation - please be aware that I'm a quite unorganized person and for that can't accept long-term-requests (ideally you're requesting host not earlier than about 1-2 weeks before you arrive).

As I'm a vegan, my guests should please be aware that I don't appreciate unvegan food at my place and most probably won't be too friendly if I smell meat or anything else made from animals in my apartment. Anyways, people say I'm a quite good cook so even if you don't have any clue what you could eat instead, you probably won't starve ;)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Until now, only good experiences ;)
I met really friendly and interesting people, had interesting conversation, funny experiences and enjoyable moments.

Interests

I'm a vegan for ethical reasons and therefor am interested in animal rights. I love listening to and making music (I am a musics teacher as well), reading good books, watching good movies, discussing various topics, cooking, relaxing and traveling.
In everyday life you'd probably find me in classroom or at home, although I also love spending time in the nature as well as with my nieces and nephew.
Friendship is really important to me, although there are not too many people which I call friends.

Music, Movies & Books

Too much to write them down.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Being the only tourist on a small Thai island and staying there with the locals definitely was one of the more exciting things I did in the past.
Also, snorkeling in the northern Red Sea, seeing the beauty of the coral reefs there, really impressed me.

Update: I traveled 11 countries in one year and experienced so many great people, places and moments that I really can't decide for the /most/ amazing ones.

Teach, Learn, Share

I don't think I have so much unusual but important knowledge to share, but I could definitely teach you how to prepare tasty vegan meals even carnivores will love and probably also some chords on the guitar.

What I Can Share With Hosts

I'm happy to share the knowledge I have, teaching you some chords on the guitar or ukulele, some German words, basic maths or whatever else knowledge I might have gained during my studies, travels and life.

Also, I'm a "creative cook" and would happily cook vegan meals for you - IF I find the closest (super-)market OR you can tell me where to buy ingredients.

Last but not least, I have some travel stories to share and am always curious to here those of others - or talking about insights, experiences or whatever in general!

PS: If you have any special requests, just tell me! I probably won't strip for you (I know, bad joke - who would want ME strip ;) ), but definitely can bring you a chocolate bar or small souvenir from the place I'm departuring from!
