About Me

I'm humourous, thoughtful, open, idealistic, art-loving and very relaxed. I believe that the meaning of life is making the world beautiful for everyone. "We did not ask for this room or this music. But because we are here, let us dance."

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I like about CS that it requires personal involvement and that it's a community not run by corporations nor driven by money. I believe that sharing is better than selling or exchanging and I love meeting all these interesting and very different people. I feel truly blessed that they're bringing the world to my place and these 13 years of hosting strangers and making them friends helped a lot in turning me into a happy person.

I receive way more requests than I accept so please don't feel insulted if I decline. I don't expect elaborate and personal messages but please be aware that my name is not "Hi!" and write a little bit about yourself and the people you're travelling with.

Interests

I like literature, theater, arts, and architecture. Music is very important to me, especially electronic, alternative and other underground stuff. I go out to small concerts and clubs a lot but I also love my home. I couldn't live without cooking, baking bread, gardening in the middle of the city and doing things with my hands instead of just buying stuff. I love everything happening right here and now, off-line and in real time :-)

I'm also a political acivist, doing campaigns for climate, alter-globalization and anti-corporate organisations. I'm neither a dogmatic nor a preacher though and I respect people with different views.

My "sacred six" are meeting friends, theater, yoga, making music, exploring Munich's exciting surroundings or lying in the grass with a book.

Music, Movies, and Books

Far too many to list here but I prefer theater over cinema and reading over watching series.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Yesterday I watched the laundry dry in the sun, that was pretty awesome.

Teach, Learn, Share

I try not to teach but I'm always curious to learn about almost everything. I love sharing time, talks and laughs, stupid jokes and deepest personal matters if the vibe is right.
