About Me

CURRENT MISSION:
Take a bath in the lake each month, this includes the freezing winter months.

AVOUT ME:
I am a gardener, a becoming yoga teacher, vegetarian, loving sister, loving daugther, loving friend, student at uni, a human seeking for moments that touch my heart.

I enjoy travelling unplaned and just take it as it comes :)

Some truth about life : Life happens while you're busy making plans :)

What I love about backpacking is to minimize your daily luxuray to the very basics and while packing to become aware what is really necessary for the next weeks. And at the end of yourntrip you will always know that you can still?minimize it even bit more.
I am a very open-minded person who enjoys meeting new people and exchange life experiences.

PHILOSOPHY

Be the change you want to see in the world.
I believe you can reach any goal you want to reach... As long as you believe in yourself.
Be careful what you wish for - it might become true :)
Open your eyes and start seeing the wonderful things around us.
Everything has a positive aspect -it is just a matter of perspective ;)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love to idea of the cycle of giving and recieving. CouchSurfing is for me part of this cycle.
I met so wonderful people through CSing who started being a stranger and soon turning into a friend.

Interests

YOGA:
I love to discover the world of yoga: discover your own limits, push yourself a bit , maybe a bit further and at the same love and accept things just the way they are.
Gretest lesson I learned so far: IT IS WHAT IT IS!
Sounds simple and at the same time hard to adjust to life :)

NATURE:
I love being out in the nature. I love hiking. I love being in my garden, lying in the hammock and watch seeds turning into plants.

HUMANS:
I need warm and close relationships in my life. That is what keeps my heart warm and loving.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

HITCH HIKING - for me the greatest way of travelling and the best possibikity to meet peopleyou probaby would notmeet othrwise. Knowing that your lifes just cross for these several kilometers makes conversations very honest, and you never know: maybe you just jump into the car of a future friend you just met for the first time :)
Just me, my bag, my tent, walk next to the road, put my thumb up and hitchhike all the way to/ around scandinavia for 3months. Being all on my own for 3months has been the biggest and greatest challenge of my life so far :)

I have been living in Cape Town for a year. It had been a great time full of touchy moments =)

Spending 10months in New Zealand has been the greatest life experience I had so far. Its people and its nature are just amazing :)
Living there has tought me that it is worth it to believe in the good of people :)

Teach, Learn, Share

My lifeexperience of 23years :)

And of course my judo skills :)
