Über mich


I am interested in many different things: books, hiking, anthropology, fun games, conversations, culture, music, poetry, kayaking, independent films, cooking, cycling, etc.

Warum ich bei Couchsurfing bin

I registered in 2010 and started hosting people, and you know what happens next: you catch a "travel" bug. After about a year moved to China and started traveling a lot in SEA and surf and host people.


My Destination (by Franz Kafka)

I called for my horse to be brought from the stable. The servant did not understand me. I myself went into the stable, saddled my horse and mounted. In the distance I heard a trumpet blast. I asked him what it meant but he did not know and had not heard it. By the gate he stopped me and asked "where are you riding to sir?" I answered "away from here, away from here, always away from here. Only by doing so can I reach my destination." "Then you know your destination" he asked. "Yes" I said "I have already said so, Away-From-Here' that is my destination." "You have no provisions with you" he said. "I don't need any" I said. "The journey is so long that I will die of hunger if I do not get something along the way. It is, fortunately, a truly immense journey."
