About Me


We learn, not for school, but for life. (Seneca)


Always searching, but have given up finding any answers:
now trying to LIVE THE QUESTIONS of life :)
Having spent a couple of years in the Philippines I consider myself adjustable, flexible and am always interested in different mind-sets, cultures, styles ... and I appreciate the same openness in other people!


I you want to have something that you never had before you need to do something that you have never done before.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Couch always available to those co-travellers in life I got to know a bit :-)


Slept on many couches, floors, bamboo beds,... mostly I do it on a private basis though.


Nature!! Hiking, climbing, cycling, ski touring, skiing, Bergwaldprojekt, outdoor trainings, ropes courses, recently sea kayak,... everything outdoors!

Reading, independent cinema, singing and music,...

Dancing rediscovered and currently very much into Tango Argentino and BalFolk

Multi-cultural issues (I work in a school with students from all kinds of cultures and backgrounds) and environmental issues.
