About Me


to be missionfree


hi there, i've been living in hamburg for almost 15 years. I live in an appartment with 3 flatmates in Altona.
I'm vegetarian and i smoke. We have an internet and phone flatrate you can use. Public transport is just around the corner and the elbe ist not far away. If you come around bring your sleeping bag with you.
I spent a lot of time with my friends. At the weekend i prefer to go to electro parties and open airs.
I care about social problems/politics and hate authorities and people who are racist, sexist and antisemitic. Therefore i often join rallies concerning antifascism, anticapitalism and so on.
I work part time in a womens shelter in Hamburg.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

before I got to know cs I was already hosting ppl from other cities, countries etc. and I couchsurfed at different places. I like this idea very much to get to know locals and their social habits, perpectives etc. I'm not into the idea of all inclusive holidays.


I like electro, goa, techno, 80ies, hiphop and pop music. My favorite party locations in hamburg are uebel & gefaehrlich, hafenklang, pudels, fundbureau, rote flora and i also like open-air-events when it's not raining.
Other stuff i read deal with topix like postmodernism, critical theory (frankfurt school), german history, gender, queer, philosophy, postcolonial theories.

Other things i like to do besides dancing are hanging around with friends, watching movies, being lazy, reading, biking, hitchhiking, discussing politics ...
Besides that i play sudoku and i spent a lot of time at the www (probably to much).

Music, Movies & Books

kinda hard to answer. I think Anne Frank "Het achterhuis" and Etty Hillesum "het denkende hart" left deep impressions on me. My favourite dutch autor is Harry Mulisch (de aanslag, de ontdekking van de hemel).
Important german books would be "die dialektik der aufklärung" and "das Kapital". The author Emma Goldman ("living my life") has been a sort of role model for me.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

i think, i made my biggest step as i was 16, i left my islamic home to life my own live
