About Me


Being active, being kind, being alive, being happy!


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.


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

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Hosting whenever I can and being hosted. Also meeting couchsurfers whenever possible.


I have had a lot of couchsurfing experience maybe slightly more hosting people in my house than being hosted, even on the days that I wasn't aware of the existence of couchsurfing. My house has always been open to travellers and friends from abroad and whoever stayed with us was a part of family. The official first couch I surfed on couchsurfing was on a sailing boat in my former cs account, and that was an amazing experience that I d love to share with you! But now my collection of couchsurfing experiences has grown!


I love nature and the great outdoors.
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, and 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!
As for movies,,,I do like many of them but nature landscapes and good music are the essential elements for a good movie.
Into the wild, 127 hours (I don't know why but the rush was real for me) and my favorite movie of all times is probably the Fight Club.
I like movies that inspire me for life and I also love music documentaries, my favorite is called Screaming Masterpiece and it is a documentary about music and bands from Iceland.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I m glad I can name more than one!

>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, wormholes sometimes water thigh high! Not for the faint hearted! An experience that someone really has to live. Words cannot describe what is down there, 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 learnt to make 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:
> Took my first european hitchhiking trip in 2012, living without a plan but it was an amazing year of my life!
> 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. January 2013.
> Surfed with a friend and the little dog in Paris the same bed for a month!!!3 people including our host( which is a good friend by now) in 28 square meters! Now this is what I call good luck in finding a host! And the fact that people can share even if they don't have much. 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 a secret medieval hideaway in Riuras, Spain. I couldnt believe the beauty of the building and the rose gardens!
>Made a lifetme dream come true in September 2015. I picked grapes in Burgundy, France. An unforgettable experience that might happen again. Oh the wine!!!
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.

What I Can Share with Hosts

When I m hosted I like to help you with the household chores, washing dishes, clean, help to cook.
Don't hesitate to ask me if you need some help!
