About Me

I am a very warm-hearted, open-minded, interested, adventurous, spontaneous and ocassionally funny person who loves to meet new people and to get insights into (family) life in other countries and other cultures! :) I study cultural anthropology and love to learn more about many topics. I am a positive human who likes to be around other sunny people who enjoy life. In my freetime I mostly listen to music and meet friends. I love to try out new things, but my passion is dancing! I also love to be outside to look at all the colours in the nature. I really love to exchange life lessons and life wisdom.
In December I decided to live the life of my dreams - I am slow-travelling Asia and try to live like the locals to experience the real-life. I don't have high standarts in living (travelled with a hammock). I am valueing peaceful and relaxed atmosphere and generally prefer a bit more to listen. I really love to talk with strangers and get to know them, but also sometimes need some hours per day on my own. I think that is normal. During my last CS-experiences I noticed how important it is for me to share a language to understand each other. I speak 5 so hopefully we find one in common :)
Overall I value spontanity and to do what just feels right. I am bad with estimating time and sticking to it. I am very relaxed and think everything should be okay to take as long as it does. Lets try to communicate clearly and friendly about expectations and wished behaviour so that we all have a good time :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I absolutely love it! I appreciate good talks and hope to meet more interesting people who love to share good stories and their experiences and life lessons with each other. I hope to meet warm-hearted people who bring their culture and lifestyle closer to me. Couchsurfing is a great chance to meet others who are interested to learn about other cultures. Still smiling about my past experiences :)
