About Me

Hey everyone!
It’s Bennet!
After finishing German Highschool last year and doing a gap year throughout the Americas, I‘m now looking forward to going to University and studying Industrial Engineering.

I love connecting with new people and learn about their story and their way of life. I believe that everything truly great in life is outside your comfort-zone, which is why I constantly try to seek discomfort and learn about new things.

My passion is music! I love listening to all kinds of music and play keys and drums. I also produce occasionally. I am always happy to receive recommendations for some good music and discover new artists. Music is such a beautiful way to connect, express emotions and simply have fun in my opinion.

I also love discussing various topics like sustainability, travel, health and everything you might be passionate about. I’m always happy to hear someone’s opinion as no one knows it all and we can always learn from each other.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I want to explore the world and learn about different places, people‘s stories and approaches to life. I think Couchsurfing is the best way to really learn about a place and the culture.
Improving my social skills is also something I really want to pursue more and Couchsurfing is an incredible tool for this!
