About Me

I was a passionate host at couchsurfing.com for many years in Hamburg and Cologne until big C presented the big break for all of us. I seized the break to move to Lübeck and create a lovely place for me in this beautiful city next to the baltic sea. Now I am at a point to welcome guest again and make them feel home and cosy in my "HerzZuhause". I work full time in a kindergarden, as volunteer in a social and antifascistic Venue for concerts and Partys, called TreibsAND and a Thingsforfreeshop called "KostNix" both at the Walli, Willy-Brandt-Allee 9-11 in Lübeck. Because of my experiences during my couchsurfing times I have some simple House roules to stabil the cosyness for everybody... If you would like to stay at my place, let me know in a friendly message and I will answer you soon.
