About Me


The World is a Book! And those who don`t travel ... only a page!


I am 27 years young, grew up in Germany, my dad is English, my mum got Hungarian roots, I got told that I look Swedish, I speak Spanish and love the Australian Lifestyle. Already confused? yeah, me too:-)

I traveled around the world from Feb. 2010 to November 2011. Almost two years with a Backpack and a big smile in my face - my Backpack I bought, the smile on my face I got since I started my Trip. Before that I lived a "normal" life with a job as IT Businessman, friends, appartment bla bla bla... until I got bitten by the travelbug.

The people which met me saying I am spontaneous, friendly, funny, open minded, interested into other cultures, independent & a little bit crazy in the positive way... When Life gives you Lemons... I make Lemonade!
People say that I have this attitude so see everything in a positive way. Well, I got shot, I got robbed and stood a couple of times at the edge of life - but I wouldn't miss out on those things! It all about the way you look at it!
Back home I figured out that I grew up here in Germany - but I feel home in big World out there.

UPDATE: uh yeah... it's all about living your dreams right? So I am currently traveling since September 2012 in Central and South America.

UPDATE 2: After I traveled for 9 months in Central and South America I am heading up to the USA to hitchhike from the eastcoast to the westcoast! (June 2013)

Where I have been so far...visited 38 states Check out my adventures in the listed countries


Life is for living right? You wont get a gold medal at the end of your life for playing it save!

Life's Journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting "holy shit... What a ride!"

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I love to get in contact with new people. I love to share experiences and stories and I also love to teach/get taught in all ways you act in your life!
How I participate: When people asking me, how I get around the World with always keeping my smile on my face - Couchsurfing is my answer!


so far I had some awesome CS-experiences in Mexico, USA, Canada, Fiji, Australia, El Salvador, Singapore and Ecuador. Every single one was special and great!/


traveling, photography, new cultures, languages, cooking, laughing, scuba diving, dancing, good conversations, writing, all kinds of sport, adventures, new experiences...ENYOING MY LIFE!Since I learned how to drive motorcycle on a KTM 525 Dirtbike - i am kind of addicted to it:-) without having a license to do it:-)

But since I travelled around the world and didn't had a TV - I just got used not to watch TV that much anymore...

Teach, Learn, Share

I really want to learn rock climbing. I am getting into photography.I am sure, that you can learn something from everyone - the best way to find it out, just to get in contact with each other and find out the interests...

You always ask yourself, why there are people out there who are able to travel and enjoying their lifes? Being happy all the time, enjoying the moment and are not afraid of the future? You wanna know why there are those kind of people? I will show you...
