About Me

I used to have an open mind, but my brain kept falling out. Other than that I'm easy going, curious, dorky, adventurous, creative, vegetarian, sometimes introvert, often a goofball, always seeking new experiences (be it trying out exotic food, meeting new people, or hiking up another mountain). Love to meet all different kinds of people and learn from them.


Why I’m on Couchsurfing

When surfing, I simply prefer experiencing a country like a local and less like a tourist.
When hosting, CS is a great way to "travel" while staying at home: you get to know other cultures, meet new people and make friends from all around the globe, and the world becomes a bit smaller that way.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Together with a guide, a friend and I climbed Cotopaxi (5.897m) in Ecuador all night and watched the sunrise at 6 am with no other tourists at the summit. The water in my bottle had frozen, I was almost hyperventilating and my fingers were too numb to operate a camera, but watching the sun rising from the thick wall of clouds was just magical and made it all worth it.

Teach, Learn, Share

The world is a book and those who don't travel read only one page.
