Travel the world and journey into myself!
I am mellow, easy-going, worldly, considerate, neat and sometimes really goofy. I was born and grew up in Germany and my dad is from Michigan so I am fluent in both German and English. I am attracted to worldly and open-minded people. I'm into outdoorsy activities.
I love nature, colors, laughing, brews and positive company. I enjoy being creative and have everything in my life be a form of art. I'm always down for some good conversation with people about the things that inspire, motivate and boggle our minds.
"Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind."
- Dr. Seuss
Life is my Religion and Nature is my Church.
Shine your light! Label it en-LIGHTEN-ment if you want.
To lighten up and to treat others with the same light, love and compassion you should also treat yourself with:)
Don't limit yourself. Always ask yourself: What else is possible? And how does it get even better than this?
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
To share the passion of traveling and expand my worldviews. To meet people and get the real deal vibe of each place I travel to as well as being able to offer it in return when I can.
I hosted many people on Maui.
Traveling at the moment. Now I'm more on the receiving side again which is equally exciting:)
Met many amazing people through it! Mostly hosted people so far:)
Most people I've met through CS I'm still good friends with.
Humanity, Art, Nature, The great outdoors, Humor, Fun, Passion, Health&Fitness, Culture, Research, People, Traveling, Cob- and Tiny Houses, Youtube DIY, Permaculture/self-sustainability, healing and most of all simply LIVE life to the fullest and follow the dreams.

Music, Movies, and Books
Music: Anything that makes me feel good really, Folk, Bluegrass, Celtic, Dubstep, Punk Rock...
Movies: Generally I like happy endings and quality movies that make me think about things and relate to the characters on a personal level. "Ink" was a good one and I also like "Silver Linings", "Thouchy Feely", "Lars and the Real Girl".
Books: Fantasy/Fiction, Alternative health stuff
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
One thing? I can't decide...here are a few amazing things I've done and experienced:
Scuba dived with reef sharks and manta rays on Maui. Stood 6ft from a juvenile Grizzly in Alaska. Saw amazing Icebergs from the airplane window with a sunrise and crystal clear stars in the universe, for some reason it's an image I can't forget! Hiked into the ice caves on Mendenhall Glacier in Juneau, AK. Stood by the edge of a cliff at the Grand Canyon of Yellow Stone Park. Woke up to a wild Buffalo right next to my tent. Drove my car from Alaska to California to Michigan more or less by myself and loved it. Stood midst wild thunder and lightning on a mountaintop. Enjoyed the outlook on the valley from a glacier in Austria on a clear and sunny day. Got lost in the Vatican. Experienced the remains of Auschwitz which still gives me sad goosebumps when thinking about it. Witnessed a drunk Oprah singer, singing amazingly in mid day on the street of Paia (Maui). Slept in a park house in Manhattan, NY because I had no money for a hotel! Gangs were banging against metal bars waking me up down the hall at 3am...Thankfully they never noticed me!
I once slipped down a 300 ft rock cliff face and was about to die had I not been able to hold onto a small tree in the last minute.
Hiking through Haleakala Crater in Hawaii twice. The second time I ran into an old Hawaiian dude threatening me with a shotgun cuz I accidentally trespassed onto his property; it was dark and I lost the trail... but I survived that one too:P
Teach, Learn, Share
Basically through an open heart and mind I see a wonderful opportunity to learn from everything and everyone. Experience. I can teach a lot about the healing arts (I'm a Massage Therapist and love my job).
I would love to learn more things about Organic Farming, self sustainable living, cob-house-building, Permaculture and herbs, anything in the alternative life style area.
What I Can Share with Hosts
Art, stories, laughter, food, good company... I'm also great at cleaning and organizing and actually love doing so;-)
