About Me

I am friendly, easy-going and have a good sense of humour. I am a daydreamer and I am open-minded, knowledgable and creative. I am always eager to learn new things and I enjoy having good food and even better conversations with interesting people.

I was born in Vietnam, but raised up in Germany. I grew up in a beautiful small City in South Germany (right on the boarder to Switzerland and France).

... after many solo trips and by inspiring from different people, I realized at some point that I want more from life. Again and again I kept asking myself at work/ in my office, between the files and the mail replies, where I would probably be, if not here. What I would do if I had the choice. If no contract would tell me to sit here for work... now if you hear that I quit my job and gave up everything without hesitation (but thoughtful !!), I often get funny and questionable looks as reactions.

So I dare a new beginning/ adventures and hope that it will open many doors, as I now close behind me.

#backpackingLife since 12/2017
End: 07/2019

Now I'm back home, South Germany and keen to give back the community. So can I host you. Feel free to ask. ✌️

Currently travel around europe:
lets move on... The world is too big to stay at one place.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

When it comes to traveling, I am not as interested in seeing the major tourist attractions and big cities as I am interested in just experiencing daily life in other countries. I am a traveller – not a tourist.

I quit my job and start travelling around the world. Start 12/2017! I never thought that I will ever get into it. It's so easy to travel. I feel more how the locals live and I do love it.
So Couchsurfing give me the opportunity to be more "local" in every country.

And I have also had amazing hosting experiences in Asia and Europe!

I am looking forward to many years of meeting like-minded travellers, hosts and CS'ers. Further more I would to share my experiences about travel on budget and save money in activities as much as possible.

PS:
If you want me to remember you, please WRITE ME a REFERENCE.
I always answer to everyone!😁
