Once upon a time, in a small, small town there was a little crazy girl. She climbed on every tree, skied down dangerous hills, was spending have of the day like Pocahontas in the forest hurting her leg literally every week....
Yes, this little girls name is Annabella.
Although I always was quite crazy and adventurous when I was little I never would have though I would be traveling around the world all alone one day.
Though I am studying and living in Berlin now, I will always have those beautiful memories of my time traveling trough SEA , Central America, Australia and Europe for 2 years.
And a big reason why this time was so amazing, was Couchsurfing.
I definitely can say traveling changed me a lot - in a positive way.
The freedom and happiness you feel while you are on the road, somewhere in the nowhere, sitting in a chickenbus with broken windows, loud Latin American music almost making you deaf....I LOVE IT! :))
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
While traveling CS (and Workaway!) made my times so special and unforgettable. The times I spend CS or in local families while traveling will always stay in my memory and I made friends for life.
And this is traveling for me: connecting and sharing with other amazing people, getting inspired by all of you guys who crossed my path.
Some of my closest friends now I met traveling so I really believe in the power and being open minded and just getting this connection. And also all of the people I met inspired me SO MUCH.
I believe that CS is a great community, I have surfed a lot and also hosted in Berlin and it was always awesome.
I you are hosting me:
I would be really interested in learning some words in your native language.
Also I make the best German famous Potato Salad! (Bavarian style). If you host me I would love to cook together and just explore random places and get lost :)
Please not that I don't drink alcohol and don't take drugs so if you're looking for a party mate to get wasted with I am probably the wrong person. But if you enjoy going out together, talking, connecting and sharing I promise you will have a great time with me!
If you are staying with us in Berlin:
I am quite involve with work and my studies, but you will get your own key and are free to roam around as you wish. I can provide you with local tips on where to eat or to go, and for sure I will join if I have some free time.
If you are super brave: I also got super-delicious-disgusting traditional Bavarian Liquor for you to try :-))
Music, Movies, and Books
When I was in Luang Prabang I was lucky to be there during the Film Festival.
They showed several Asian Movies and one movie that totally inspired me and touched my heart was "Still I Strive", a Cambodia Movie about kids from an orphanage in Phnom Penh.
I am so inspired to start my own social project, anybody who had advice or any knowledge about that please send me a message!
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Riding a scooter with a guy I just met in the ferry a few hours ago up to the view point in Koh Tao.
Swimming with the plankton in Cambodia at night, the sky full with stars, somewhere in the ocean...
Traveling with locals from Honduras I've just randomly met at the border to Nicaragua for 10 days and staying at their home place
Hiking the vulcano Acatenango and camping up on the crater, seeing Fuego erupt every 10mins.
Sitting in the chickenbus in Guatemala next to a woman with a big plant on her lap, the branches flying into my face all the time, it was soooo hilarious!
Spending less than 100Euro in 2 months in India, because I was CS everyday and meeting the most awesome people ever.
Also I didn't shower for 3 weeks when I was staying in an orphanage in Cambodia. (There was no shower. And YES we have a shower here in Berlin, don't worry. It is even with warm water ;) )
Traveling 10 hours only to be flooded away from the rain in dessert of morocco and not seeing the beautiful stars at night (I asked my guide when it rained the last time, he said 3 years ago haha)
Teach, Learn, Share
I can teach how to make the best German Potato salat or Bavarian words that will impress everybody you meet.
Also, as a computer scientist I can give you an introduction to basic frond end and back end programming :)
What I Can Share with Hosts
I will do my best that we have a great time together and create memories that we will never forget.
CS for me isn't just to crash at a place for free, nor is it a dating website.
I'm still very good friends with most of my former hosts - so if you feel good vibes and are interested in getting to know me and share you are warmly welcome :)
Please include the word "WONDERFUL" in your request to show you read and understood :)
