About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Try to host at least as often as I´ve been hosted myself

ABOUT ME

Actually I´m not to shure of what I think of myself. Life kind of is a mystery to me and everyday I walk around wondering.

Sometimes I´m a person of contradiction.

I guess I think of myself as someone who devotes his life to beauty and arts.

PHILOSOPHY

"Life is far too important a thing ever to talk seriously about"

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

For I´m still a student and live with my parents so I can´t garantie that I´ll have a couch during the requested time. Anyway I only got like 3 requests witch I had to turn down cause I wasn´t home. I´m living in a rather sleepy German Town, so if you´re interrested in a place wich nightlife often ends at 12pm I´ll be glad to show you around ;-) (Now seriously it´s not that bad)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I surfed three times now in Arnhem, Berlin and Paris. Unfortunatly I didn´t get the chance to host yet.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Sleeping on the pavement in Barcelona in front of the Camp Nuo in Barcelona with a bunch of U2 Fans and than seeing the concert.

Swimming in the sea with Dolphins.

The two best cigarettes I ever had: during the Song "I´m Your Man" at a Leonard Cohen Concert and walking under the sky of Paris at sundown that was shining so red as if it was in flames and I could light my cigarette by holding it against the sky.

Teach, Learn, Share

I teach guitar and I´ve got some knowledge about musical theory. Also I´m interrested in jamming with any musician. I ain´t got a huge record collection (no it´s really not much) but for who´s interested I could always bring some music or concert DVD´s.

I would like to learn some cool instruments. Right now I very interrested in the harmonica and Piano
