About Me

***T R A V E L I N G A T T H E M O M E N T***


Fighting violently for Peace is like fucking for virginity.


I like surprises, decent chats, the feeling of traveling, spending time with people that care about eachother, sports, going out, being outgoing, being whatever feels right.


Noone is to be reduced to what he or she cannot do.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Hosting and surfing. I do love to trust people.

I'm like a grandma couchsurfer, who knows and likes to talk about the old sweet times. Now, as a consequence of several recent experiences, I feel the unpleasant need to make a little note about surfing someone's place here:

- Your Request: Please, I really like to have a good time with my surfers and I'm sure surfers also want to have a good time with their host. One way to make that more probable ist to check the profile. If you have done that, it is only polite to greet the host with his/her name in your request, briefly to mention why you travel and why you think staying with that host could work out well. In order to get an impression of you, I want to check out your profile - if you havn't written anything - how can I invite you?

- Your Stay: Please be aware that surfing one's place doesn't mean your host cleans up after you, carries your dirty dishes from your room after you left, and cleans the toilet for you because you don't understand what it means to sit down on the toilet

- Food: Please understand that hosting doesn't go with catering. Of course, we share food and coffee and all that. But that should be a mutuality, which I feel a bit ashamed to comment on.

- References: Please write references after you left. That is the only way Couchsurfing works and it is also just a little attention for your host.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I don't call my activities amazing

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm happy to learn whatever comes along and I share and teach whatever I can offer and you are interrested in. Usually we have more knowledge and more to give than we assume.

What I Can Share with Hosts

On travels I've learned that there's always something to do; people have projects on their mind or simple works that they don`t have the time to accomplish. Sometimes we just shared travel advice, stories, loughs, recipes, and sometimes I helped in the house, made bread or repaired something.
