About Me


Not to have one.


I love to discover new places and meet new people. When I`m finally awake, after two or three coffees, I`m up for almost everthing. Normally, I would meet my friends, drink more coffee with them and change this in some point of the day for beer. Something cultural (galleries, concerts, of course festivals as well), than going out and partying and I made my day!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I would like to refer to some profound reason...but, well, right now im travelling through Spain and Portugal.


I`m new as a surfer. But my former roomy in Mexico City was a cs host, so I have experience with hosting and had a lot of nice evenings with cool people.


I am interested in art, especially photography (the of others, not mine), street art and any king of new, innovative projects. My favourite music is Electro, Electro-Swing, Balkan and Sixtees. And, since I already mentioned my profession, I think it is clear that I am interested in politics. Would like to add some other special hobbies or sports, but...have to stick to reality. Eventually any topic of conversation is interesting with the right people, so I can talk about everything, except of my past journeys (although travelling is definitively one of my favourite interests, normally it gets very boring for the rest once people start with this topic!).

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I said I am not talking about my travelling experiences, but maybe I should not write about my daily incredible experiences here (e.g. not missing the train to work). Like I said, I´m up to almost everthing, so I climbed mountains and stuff like this, but if I really have to think about this I would choose getting lost in Bejing after a drinking competition with chinese people in a little convenience store (we only wanted to buy water!).
