Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Finding places to stay when I travel to meet new people and hosting people from all over the world.


Ich bin politisch sehr aktiv und engagiere mich für eine offene Welt. Ich reise sehr gerne um andere Kulturen und Orte kennen zu lernen. Ich bin ein leidenschaftlicher Fotograf und singe in einem Chor, wo wir unter anderem Brahms Requiem aufgeführt haben. Sonst programmiere ich gerne Webseite und kann nicht aufhören Tischtennis zu spielen. Mit wandern und fahrradfahren an schönen Tagen runde ich meinen Alltag ab. Ich bringe gerne anderen Leute Sachen bei.

On nice days I'll like to hike and ride a bicycle. I like to teach other people things.
