About Me




I like to talk to people with diverse backgrounds, get to know their points of view and investigate issues which finally enrich my perspective and sense what this is all about in life. I also enjoy myself singing, dancing, going out... get to know people, laughing together. I hope to have the possibility to go on living in different countries as I like changes from time to time and learning more about ways of seeing and living life.
I really enjoy city-life but I also need to be in nature sometimes - it gives a lot of energy!


I want to be rich in experiences, trying to learn as much as possible in my life and have a lot of fun and positive vibrations around me!
I also think it is important to get to know oneself in order to have a fulfilled life.
For me being positive and passionate only for it´s own sake makes a lot of things possible.
And to use a commong phrase: the way is the goal (is this correct in english?)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I meet up with couchsurfers for hanging out and doing cultural stuff.


I really like couchsurfing ... it is very cool to get to know the people and their ways of living in their culture. It is always special because you meet somebody in a short and specific moment of his/her life and as you are surfing his or her couch you are right in the middle. Somehow this opening of our houses to complete strangers turns out as opening ourselves out of trust and I think that couchsurfing in this sense is a very unique and outstanding human experience.


World-cultures and ways of living/thinking.
Listening and making music.
Learning different dance-styles.
Having close looks to certain issues and searching for answers as well as new questions.
Design.. of clothes, apartments etc.
AND obviously travelling!
