Join Couchsurfing to see Bastian’s full profile. It’s free!
To travel around and write about the world, about people I'll meet, places I'll see, stories I'll find. I'm starting my trip around the world on April 2nd.
--> My blog: globalmonkey.net
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 journalist for a German daily newspaper and was 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:
-writing some short (literary) stories
-writing some longer (journalistic) stories
-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 for a German daily newspaper and met couchsurfers in Augsburg and on a trip through Poland.
Now I quit my job in Augsburg, will work as a freelancer but first explore some impressive places in the whole wide world. I hope to meet you on my trip around the world. // First stations: Iceland, USA, Canada. Now: Mexico!
Music, Movies, and Books
Last one I like: Western (German/Bulgarian/Austrian movie about some construction workers at the Bulgarian border)
Last one I heard intensively: L.A. Witch
Last one I read: Yuval Noah Harari - Homo deus
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Many situations. All people that influenced my life. And ALF.
Teach, Learn, Share
Talk about books, music, film, German language, arts, politics, journalism, etc.
What I Can Share with Hosts
A bunch of funny, obscure, strange and deep stories. I write often about my trips. Possibly my hosts will be part of the story (if they like to be in it).
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.
