find the MOST BEAUTIFUL place on earth, then work hard and safe enough to built my dreamhouse with attached hostel, veg-restaurant & organic farm! Create my own paradise and share it with likeminded :)
Well, I`m an adventurer. I guess that´s the best word to describe me. I went travelling the world just after I finished highschool and had such great experiences and met so many nice people that I never wanted to stop it. Today I have been travelling for more than 5 years in which I have seen a third of the countries in the world. Every now and then I stay in a place and work for a bit, but I will always have to keep travelling more parts of the world, it`s the only thing what keeps me happy and alive in the long-term and where I can be myself:)
If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him. We need not wait to see what others do.(Gandhi)
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I love talking to people. I never studied at university and believe that you "study" much better by just being out there in the world, so I try to pass my experiences to others. People are creating the world.
Did couchsurfing for a couple of times with friends and by myself, which was both quite an experience. Unfortunately guys can be a little creepy in Asia and I would`t do it again or recommend it to any other single girl travelling. We hosted some people in our tiny apparment in Canada as well as in Scotland and it was fun seeing the other side this time.
Travelling. While doing that, yoga, hiking, diving, skiing, meditating, writing, reading, playing music, gardening, building, painting, dancing Tango, taking pictures, spending time with animals, cooking (I became a vegetarian in India, because this is the place in the world where everything is not hidden but happening right in front of you) making friends in every country, experiencing new cultures, learning new languages and whatever else comes up spontaneously.
Music, Movies, and Books
During "unnormal life" it`s hard to find time for those things. Either I am working hard staying at one place or moving around the world. But if, I like books which teach you something, world literature and movies which let you forget everything else over a romantic night with your partner.. Music depends on the situation, sometimes there are those songs which make you so enthuasiastic about something - I love driving down the highway, singing in the campervan "It`s my life, it`s now or never, I`m not gonna live forever..."
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
This field is too short for the lots of amazing things I ´ve seen. But for sure I'll tell you some of them in person :)
Teach, Learn, Share
Respect everyone. Every person has it`s reasons and causes for being how they are and acting how they act. Just try to understand and feel compassion for them. That`s all.
What I Can Share with Hosts
I just got certified as a yoga teacher in India and would be very happy to give you a class of Hatha or Ashtanga yoga ;-) I'm also happy to share my language knowledge or cooking recipes with you as well as give you travel tips for your next destination.…
