About Me




...not always easy to handle... ;o) but I try to work on it...
I'm very interested in other people's culture, I'm enthusiastic and adventurous...


Turn your face to the sun and the shadows will fall behind you. -Maori proverb-

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


There are no strangers; only friends we haven't met.

Couchsurfing changed my life in a very positive way! It finally gave me, what I was looking for for a very long time! I'm very grateful for the knowledge, that I'll never feel alone in this world anymore. Wherever I am - there is always the door of a friend I can knock on...It's not a sleeping place for free, that makes couchsurfing that attractive - it's the people you meet on your way! I'm definately a couchsurfing addict!
