About Me


Be free and create!


Travelling, meeting new people and catching precious moments with my camera is part of my life.

I am an openminded and independent person that goes her way through life. I have a few very old friends everywhere in the world and I am proud of being still in contact with them although the distances that seperate us.

I like to create and give a personal touch to things guided by my artistic visual spirit and sense of beauty.

Wandering around in nature is my pleasure and way to open my horizon.

I believe in my strength and the idea that any kind of challenge allows me to progress personnally.


Live in the present but think of the future and leave something positive behind you.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I try to understand what the other person is looking for and help him/her to find it as far as I can.

Sharing is important for human and environmental reasons.


Hospitality is a part of my culture. I have always hosted people and organised exchange programms for my students.I am convinced that living for a couple of days in a foreign family will offer you a completely different cultural understanding. And often it´s the beginning of real friendships!
