Absorb life like a sponge
I like enjoying life to the full! Since I've discovered the thrill of travelling I'm addicted to seeing and tasting all that's new. I'd like to see as much of the world as possible during my life and I'm so grateful we live in a time that it's possible to spread your wings without any problems and broaden your horizon endlessly.
Couchhosting makes this possible without even packing your bags: the whole world comes to your home!
I'd hate getting stuck in old patterns of: degree-work-work-work-house-children-retirement-graveyard
Therefore, I give travelling and absorbing experiences absolute priority in my life.
Later in life, I don´t want regrets of things I didn´t do. Therefore: follow your dreams and visit the places you want to see!
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
People have treated me so well during my travels, I'd like to return the favour!
I have been surfing couches all around Europe and have only hosted someone who hosted me the week before. I'd love to host, but I have to be home,not travelling.
All experiences were wonderful and I hope to return the favour, especially to the people who were so generous to me!
