About Me

I‘m Bennet, 19 years old and just graduated German Highschool! I am finally ready to explore the world and am happy to meet new people.
I am doing a gap year right now doing some work and a lot of travel across North, Central and South America. Just finished 3 months of work in Toronto, now traveling South America with a stop in NYC!

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, climate change, politics 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.

I am an introvert and making friends with strangers has always been a challenge. Improving my social skills is something I really want to pursue more and Couchsurfing is an incredible tool for this!
