About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Find my landing ground.

ABOUT ME

I'm mostly described as random and spontaneous; sometimes too much. I am very independent and I consider being social an occupation. I love experiences and adventures.

PHILOSOPHY

I live the day to get to the next one. Nothing big planned anytime soon or far.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I like showing people around my city and just offering some time off for coffee and a nice chat.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I enjoyed crashing CS get-togethers in different cities.

Interests

I'm really passionate about music, politics, helping people, dancing, and food. If I am home (which is rare), I can usually be found buried under stacks of books and papers. However, I'm usually at bars, cafes, park benches, or finding a comfy spot on the sidewalk writing a diary, or scribbling some poetry, or doodling a dream I had the day before. I can be identified as that one girl on the street dancing to the music she's blasting through her headphones, or the one having a too serious of a conversation about the future of the middle east under intoxication.

Music, Movies & Books

It would be too unfair to try and list them.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

One moment that really made me lose my balance was spending New Year's Eve around a burning bathtub in Sweden in the middle of no-where. At midnight, I was enjoying the frozen champagne (-17°C) with my friends and I took a look at the stars and I was completely speechless. I've never seen so many stars in my life. There are no words to describe how beautiful that scene was.

Another moment was in Berlin in 2007. I was with some friends on one of those towers that drop so fast they make you shit your pants. Before the drop there are a couple of minutes that you are just hanging up there to increase the dramatic effect. In those minutes, at night time, up in the air, in Christmas ... Berlin could have not been more colorful.
