About Me

what is life about?

I am a curiouse, open minded, very active and positive person. I love to cook, cycle, hike, board, travel and listen to music and stories.
Love to have an "open house".
Now that my kids are grown - I can focus on my needs again :)

I try to live the Golden Rule (treat others as you would want to be treated).

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love the idea about GIVE and TAKE - so please no request if there are no referances on your profile. try to find somebody to show around in your hometown or so... easy. first step to a good CS career
Don`t take advantage of my hospitality! Ask what you can do - bring- share in exchange for a nice place to stay.
I enjoy having CSer in my house, show them around (even to show them the places where "sound of music" was filmed when my time permits.
I like to invite them to "Wiener Schnitzel" or other typical austrian food, sit around our big table (picture) and listen to them talking about their country ....


Participating in outdoor activities (especially in winter) like snowboarding, swimming, hiking...
I love to travel alone.
I like to see different cultures, foreign towns, love to see performances in theaters, operas, musicals ...

Teach, Learn, Share

First: I love to travel on my own. ..getting out of my comfort zone.
Second. make friends around the world.
Third: the world is coming right into my livingroom.
