About Me

I stayed the last year in Ghana and Ivory Coast and Tanzania for internships in the environmental and sustainability sector.
Now, I am back to Freiburg. Unfortunately I can not host but I am happy to meet people and show travellers the beautiful city Freiburg.

---

I would call myself an open minded person who loves to meet people from all over the world to get to know their cultures, ways of living and thinking and exchange some interesting stories.💬
Last year I travelled around Africa, very spontaneously and alone. I met so many amazing people so now that I am back home I am happy to host people from all around the world to broaden my horizen.🌍🌎🌏 I think in this life we can never finish learning from each other!
Furthermore, I think we all live in a bubble and we are usually surrounded by people with similar opinions, conditions and backgrounds. It's so important to escape this bubble sometimes!

widen your horizon, be open, be spontaneous, escape your comfort zone

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Get to know new cultures, meet new people and share some stories
I like to see life from many different perspectives and learn new things whenever I can and life gives me the possibility 🙂 It is amazing what stories you can experience through couchsurfing I think!
