About Me

CURRENT MISSION

save up some money and make my way down to Australia and New Zealand

ABOUT ME

Iam originally from Germany but been moving around for the past 5 years, while spending some time teaching English and German, writing articles for an online casino, working in summer and winter camps, serving food and drinks in pubs, bars, restaurants and on boats and looking after children while Au Pairing... At the moment I am working as a senior customer service advisor for Germany at TJX Europe in Watford. I love traveling, meeting new people and exploring new places, so I try to go at least one place new every year.

PHILOSOPHY

"It's not about worrying what's down the road, or where you will end up, it's enjoying where you are right now"

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I have hosted people in Spain, Germany and the UK over the last couple of years. I organized a fair amount of meet ups while living in London. I've organized weekly pub meet ups in St Albans. As I just moved to Watford I still try to get more involved into the CS community here:)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I couchsurfed in the UK and Germany, Czech Republic and the USA and hosted in Spain, the UK and Germany. I went to couchsurf meetings and organized meet ups as well, which was always good fun. I met a lot of great and interesting people through couchsurfing.
Also some of my very good friends I met on couchsurfing.

Interests

I like hanging out with friends, going to the pub for a drink or try new food.
I enjoy cooking, even though most of the time I just through stuff together and recently I discover how much fun baking cakes and cup cakes can be:)
I love old book stores and to walk around the markets.
I love going to the movies (sometime I wish life would be like in the movies) and listening to music.I like to go for a walk through the city, getting lost and discover new places. I found my passion in traveling and want to see more of the world. I try to go at least one place new every year:)
Also most of the time when I travel I end up living and working at these places, but that's still a good way of getting to know different cultures and people or maybe better.
