About Me


At the moment - discovering New Zealand. First things first.

I'm trying to stay free without being employed as long as possible so I can travel where and when I want to. So far it's working out fine :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I love to travel and love the idea of getting to know people at the same time!

Unfortunately for the last years, I´ve either been living at my moms, in a tiny, tiny room in London, or sharing an apartment with a friend in Berlin, so haven´t really been able to offer my couch yet, but I promise I will, as soon as I have the opportunity!


Spent 10 days in Istanbul in two different guy flatshares and had an absolutely great time. Stayed with quite a few people all over Australia, mostly people who invited my pal Alex and myself to their homes when we were cycling from Cairns to Sidney.


I love old places with old architecture, tiny villges, hiking, jumping around in waves, love cooking, reading, history

Music, Movies, and Books

Don't ask me about music, I'm absolutely clueless when it comes to genres, names and songs. I love the Harry Potter books and the book thief.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Driven across the salt desert in Bolivia when it had rained the night before and the dry salt lake was like a massive mirror- felt like cruising in heaven
