About Me

Back in Franconia/Bavaria/Germany.

I'm Basti. I like music. Courtney Barnett and Kurt Vile are singing in the background at the moment. I like film and literature. I was working as a writer and studying German literature and media science.

I like most of the people I know. And because of this, I hate to say "I". So, now a list:

- arts & politics
- brewery hiking tours
- eating something special
- writing some stories, photographing
- planning a little world revolution in me

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

My former flatmate Jasmin has invited many Couchsurfers to our townhouse in Bayreuth a few years ago. The bunch of room-mates loved it to talk about things our couchsurfers experienced.

From 2013 till 2018 I was working and met couchsurfers in Augsburg and on a trip through Poland.

Times changed, I was traveling for almost two years around the world doing my favorite stuff: writing, photographing, meeting people and learning about their lives allover. That's one of the reasons: I never learned more than talking to people that are really living in this place.


That's "me".

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Many situations. All people that influenced my life. Appearing lakes in the desert of Iran, lonely nights in the desert of Baja California. And ALF.

Teach, Learn, Share

Talking about books, music, film, German language, arts, politics and the quite strange life on Franconian countryside.

What I Can Share with Hosts

A bunch of funny, obscure, strange and deep stories.

I have the semi-official title improviser of kitchen. I would not say "cook". But improvise some meals for you should work. :-)

I think after years of trying I can shoot some respectable photos I would like to share with you if you like.
