About Me


Do a handstand in every country.


I'm always thinking about the next place I want to go! I haven't yet even scratched the surface of everything I want to see, but for the moment I spend my time reading travel memoirs, trying new foods, listening to one song on repeat for hours, and going on walks to nowhere. I enjoy sharing good food and drinks and going to parties just as much as jumping off cliffs, skydiving, and really any adventure I can get my hands on. Everything once, right? :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I can't host anybody right now, as I live in an apartment with 3 other roommates.


I don't have any experience yet - should be changing soon though!


Traveling, swimming, dancing, reading, listening to good music, going to concerts, yoga, aerial circus, and anything adrenaline-filled.
