About Me


Explore nice cultures and places.


Im 31 years old. Creative, enthusiastic, sometimes chary, sometimes not.
I always like to get new experiences and to meet nice people.


With my words:
Be a nice person, and nice things will happen to you. Don't be nice just for hoping to receive something back. Be nice just for your the pleasure of own heart. The rest will follow. Believe me or not, most people like people with a big heart.

In short (with the words of Bruce Lee):
Be water my friend!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I heard of this community from a friend and liked the idea a lot. I'll be glad if I can help people to travel around the world because I like traveling around, too.


Met some nice people so far. Showed them my city. It was a lot of fun after all.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

1. A Bicycle-Tour through Valle de la Muerte of the Atacama Desert. Six hours in the burning sun with a shaky bike and only 2 liters of water. Later then I sat on top of a mountain, watched the beautiful sunrise and ate the incredibly most delicious apple in my life!

2. Alta Gracia (Argentina): I jumped out of a plane.

3. Israel - "The Crazy Land"
