About Me

Hi :), my name is Franz and I‘m 28 years old.

I am passionate about hiking and literally all outdoor activities. In my daily life, I try to implement the philosophy of „seeking discomfort“, meaning that I am striving to being open to new things and adventures instead of avoiding them. I would describe myself as a pretty open-minded person who loves being around other people.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

What I have learned from my journeys in the past is, that there are so many amazing and interesting people around the world. People from Couchsurfing allowed me to expand and broaden my mindset and view on certain things in life. After the pandemic, I want to continue that experience and meet new people. Couchsurfing provides me with that opportunity and that is one of the reasons why I am here.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

In 2017, I was traveling with three strangers from Denmark, Canada, and the US through New Zealand for a whole month. We didn’t meet each other before we jumped into on tiny car and started our journey. During this month, we had been hiking almost every day and had so many amazing conversations. To this date, we are still in contact and think about a new adventure in 2023.

Teach, Learn, Share

I’d like to learn Spanish and some basics of Mandarin one time in my life. But before that, I would like to master English first.

If you are thinking about doing your Open Water license, I am more than happy to answer all of your questions.
