about. the project

The project was born soon after i hosted people through Couchsurfing in my former one-room flat in Salzburg. I am using it as my profile extension for you to learn more about me. Furthermore, the aims to gather people and encourage them to share their experiences in leaving their comfort zone, exploring the world and embracing life.

I would say this is a travel blog. It’s about people on their way stopping by at my place or about me stopping by at other people’s places. About the discoveries we make and the stories we share, but there is more to it. It talks about the things that remain if we leave the unnecessary behind. It is about finding and growing confidence in others and in life.

about. you

I like to meet people. I would like to know you and your way of life if it seems to correspond. Also I want to invite you to take part in the project if you feel like sharing your insights. I believe that everyone has meaningful things to say as we are all on the same way. Everyone is constantly leaving comfort zones while searching and evolving.

In case you are on Couchsurfing and reading this because you travel to Salzburg please send me a request. You can check my home section on the actual profile to find out if we match. If you are in Salzburg or coming to Salzburg and you are not a Couchsurfer yet, just drop me a line and we can meet up anyway.

about. me

Growing up in Salzburg I left my comfort for the first time when I was 22. I found my mind clearing up when I walked on a pilgrimage in Spain. Discovering that simplicity is the essence of happiness, it took me years and more walking to implement these findings into daily life and to finally stay in my hometown.

I was longing for the sense of community experienced when walking ever since. Going in the same direction with others for a positive motive makes it easy to connect. Along with the realization that the vital things actually fit into a small backpack these connections became the only thing that really matters.

more. about

It is a blog about the different ways each of us travels. It shares information and inspiration about places to visit. Either shared by locals or by travelers who visited these places.

But it goes beyond by sharing experiences we gain outside our comfort. By not only talking about the journeys we take, but also about personal growth when we travel past our personal boundries.

We are all searching and no one knows exactly what works and where the journey goes. We need each other to reflect, learn and understand better. I am sure everyone has something meaningful to say and it is worth to see all different perspectives.

If you want to share your insights I would be pleased to hear your ideas and publish them on the blog. Or meet you and develop these ideas further in whichever direction would work.

You can write an article or tell me your story and let me write about it. Most topics would fit. It could be about your favorite travel destinations, your country, your city, your own projects or the story of your personal growth and the things you value most.

You don’t need any experience. Once you contacted me and I know what you want to write about I can send you an outline, a template for the basic structure of you blog post. You do not need to use it, but if you never wrote any articles it can be of great help.

Your writing doesn’t have to be perfect. I am not a native english speaker, but i can do some basic corrections with the help of a program and I have access to editors if nececcary.

Send me a message through the contact form below or on Couchsurfing. If you are going to come to Salzburg we can meet up. Perhaps I can show you around or help with planning your visit and if you want to write or have any other idea to contribute to the blog we can discuss it in person.

I am also making a documentary about travel experiences, interesting places and the connections we make and would be very pleased to get the chance to video interview you.
