About Me


Finding new stories to tell about the world, rethinking for a common future. Education plays a huge part in this!


Be free, be crazy, be like a bird!
(Manu means bird in Rapa Nui and other Polynesian languages)

Love to get to know people and their stories, share mine, trying to make the world a better place together.
Let's cook together - although I'm the maybe not by the book type.

Background in Environmental Sciences and you can count me in for outdoorsy adventures! I love to laugh and have good conversations, especially with some music at a camp fire.

Currently back in Germany after experiencing the diversity of our world all over and still continuing to do so - just with a Macro lens right now :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Show you the place, introduce you to the pub world, outdoor activities, exchange experiences and cross-cultural events or crazy artsy stuff :)


Be open and great things will happen to you - I made that experience, I think I provided that as well, it's just a natural give and take where no one has to ask for and you just immediately connect with CSers and get to know new stuff!
