About Me


Finding out where 2015 will take me


Well, that's hard to say, so I guess for a start I put down some of my favourite quotations.

Those with the sorest throats,
have done the most singing. (Bright Eyes)

"I, on the other hand, have never been able to convincingly wear athletic gear, and prison life would kill me." (out of a book i like)


Caminante son tus huellas
el camino, y nada más;
caminante, no hay camino,
se hace camino al andar.
Al andar se hace camino,
y al volver la vista atrás
se ve la senda que nunca
se ha de volver a pisar.
Caminante, no hay camino,
sino estelas en la mar.
Antonio Machado
That's one of my favourite quotations at the moment -something I'd like to keep in my mind.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Well, nice people from all over the world are always welcome to stay with us.
I myself feel a very strong "Fernweh" ..


photography (mostly and preferably black and white), going to concerts whenever possible, yoga,cooking, literature,travelling by tram, finding untranslatable words... uh, sounds like i am in need of starting a better sounding hobby.

Music, Movies, and Books

-"science of sleep" and "dancer in the dark"

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I was waiting for my train suffering from a horrible heartache.Suddenly a stranger came up to me and said that I should smile a bit and he gave me a silver ring saying 'I've been very lucky when I had it and I hope it will make you happier/luckier,too.'

i am not sure about teaching - but i am definetely happy to learn about anything and everything.
