About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To find little pieces of myself in other people through travelling and meeting-then connect the pieces and find myself!!!

ABOUT ME

I m just an enthousiastic girl who recently decided that it is ok if one is not like society expects him/her to be. I would like to live differently, I would like to create, love and be happy instead of being in the constant hunt for money. I have had some experience of living without money, and a lot of people think it is not possible. Well, nothing in life is impossible. I just think one chooses to take the path they feel most comfortable with. I emjoy the arts and specially music and I love communal living, it is an experience that I really treasure. All people should work as one, helping and sharing because then the happiness is always double and the sadness is always half. This is the message I would like to pass to the world..Oh, and I believe there is no coincidence in life, everything is connected! “I am the right brain. I am creativity. A free spirit. I am passion. Yearning. Sensuality. I am the sound of roaring laughter. I am taste. The feeling of sand beneath bare feat. I am movement. Vivid colors. I am the urge to paint on an empty canvas. I am boundless imagination. Art. Poetry. I sense. I feel. I am everything I wanted to be.”

PHILOSOPHY

We came here to serve each other. Sharing is caring.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Right now I am living away from my home and I am hosted indefinitely in a family home so unfortunately I cannot host people. I would like to broaden my cs experience by surfing some couches in the near future and I m always open to invitations for a coffee or a drink if you are around the area where I am.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have had tons of couchsurfing experience maybe slightly more hosting people in my house. My house has always been open to travellers and friends from abroad and whoever stayed with us was a part of family. I officially surfed a couch in a sailing boat in my former cs account, and that was an amazing experience that I d love to share with you!

Interests

Getting to know your interests! I am very enthousiastic about others people's interests sometimes. Languages are my passion I think, I love to listen to any language and trying to understand the context with whatever knowledge from the languages I know. Music is my other passion, I like to sing and play a little percussion and of course I love to dance to it! Oh and festivals! I love music festivals!

Music, Movies & Books

The Journey of the Heart from Osho was the last book that I read and it really changed my life! Music has saved my life in various occasions and I ill update this part with my favorite but for sure I m carrying more than 500GB of music everywhere with me! A big range of genres, as I am a musicophile!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

>Played 2 years in a batucada-I love Samba! >I lived with other travellers in a house that we squated in Greece for a good 2 months before we were evicted, around 11 people were living and creating together as family in harmony. We lived on a little to no money basis, recycled and did a lot of containering, made musical instruments, played music on the streets, we became one. And all these without electricity or running water-we would get this from the neighbours so this was also a way to integrate into the neighbourhood. Possibly the best experience of my life so far, I hope this was not the end. That was living in UTOPIA. > I have explored and spent more than 20 hours in the unofficial part of the catacombs in Paris, a network of +-300km of tunnels, galleries, sometimes water thigh high! An experience that someone really has to live. Words cannot describe what is down there, 25m unter the surface. > Me and a frew friends took care of a french farm in the french countryside, in a small village of 100 people. Milked and fed 4 cows and 70 goats, shovelled a lot of shit. But I got to know the secrets and I made myself different varieties of french cheese which tastes AMAZING! > My first official couchsurfing experience was on a sailing boat in Sardinia, a fantastic experince and a unique host, if you are Sardinia-bound try this nice host: http://www.couchsurfing.org/people/dr.mad > Took my first european hitchhiking trip in 2012 and havent stopped, living without a plan, life is amazing! > Hitchhiked from Berlin to Nancy with 2 friends and a dog all together, slept in the forests and parks because it took us 4 days to reach destination. All in good spirit. > Surfed with a friend and the little dog in Paris the same bed for a month!!! Now this is what I call good luck in finding a host! And hosts can create nice network, this host was suggested by our host in Nancy. So Basically every couchsurfing experience is more or less a fantastic amazing experience! >I camped 5 days in Saturnia thermal springs in Tuscany, Italy. That place is heaven on Earth! >Couchsurfing in this amazing amazing place in Riuras, Spain. I couldnt believe the beauty of the building and the rose gardens! https://www.couchsurfing.org/people/adrisconcept hm, I think I would have to think about an order here, I have had a lot of amazing experiences! to be updated soon!

Teach, Learn, Share

As I am pretty good with languages I could teach you some english or german and I would love if someone can teach me some french. I can show you how to play the kalimba. I can sing and jam with you if you re into it or if you are a musician.
