People who viewed Joel also viewed these hosts

I am a musician and translator. I produced electronic music, film scores, made sound design as well as played in a jazz band. I am a history nerd and very interested in science and languages. I love the Berlin nightlife and know my way around the local club scene. I am an outgoing person with a passion for my city and its history and I have a great time teaching others about it. Whether you are interested in Berlin's history, want to check out some great music venues, want to see what the LGBT-scene is like or simply want to have a good time exploring bars and clubs - I can definitely show you around and make your stay unique and exciting!

I am originally from Venezuela and have lived in the Caribbean, Spain and now Germany. I love the outdoors so protecting the environment is one of the main goals in my life which is why I am currently doing my PhD on sustainable water use at TU Berlin. This love for nature has also translated into a love for sports so I spend a lot of time bouldering, hiking through the forests that surround Berlin or biking; I enjoy taking people on my adventures and show them how beautiful our city is by bike and all the cool abandoned places there are to visit! I also play the Piano and Violin so I really like finding places with good music here in the city and free concerts! Last but not least, ever since I moved here and learned more about the city’s past I have been kind of obsessed with it and I truly like taking friends on walks and showing them how interesting this city is and all the different stages of evolution it has endured to be the great place it is now.

I am 29, have travelled 60 countries world wide alone and am the life and soul of a party. I can make a mojitio in 37 seconds and have a never ending Berlin bucket list of places to see and things to do - I live with my German boyfriend and recently got to wear a Dirdnl (tradtional German Bavarian dress) to a wedding, which literally made my life! I love Berlin, you can be whoever you want to be here and are celebrated for it, come join me for some adventures!

I have lived in Berlin for 8 years now. I not only love the city but embrace it and consider it part of who I am. I am a stubborn preacher of the Golden Mean, have a background in economics whilst leading a double life as a literary freak and work at an independent publishing house, specialised in politics and investigative journalism. I can be usually found obsessed about book, my new Fujifilm X100F or very black coffee. And would love to bike or walk with you through the known and less known parts of city, take pictures, visit galleries, museum, abandoned buildings, street art corners, parks, flea markets, bookstores, live concerts, coffeeshops and finish in the exciting Berlin night life, which I know very well. My interest are as broad as the possibilities have for a day out.
