About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Finally!!! Going to Australia in 2014, excited!!!!!

ABOUT ME

I think I'm nice, open-minded and sometimes really crazy :-) I`d love travel around the world but don't have enough money so this is a really great idea - especially the experience you have by living with the locals while travelling - no 5star accommodation in the world can provide you with it- so it's priceless!

Now I'm studying geography and cultural anthropology - and after years of being dissatisfied with my studies I finally found the one that I really like... I know everyone says that you don't have good chances on the jobmarket with studies like this... But finally I got to the point where all I can say is: I Don't care! I like it and thats what's important ;-) Better than going to a job - day by day - where you earn a lot but hate to be there, just my opinion :-)

PHILOSOPHY

Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all people cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends.

~Maya Angelou~

Travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living.

~Miriam Beard~

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I hope to get in contact with people from all over the planet, to learn about them, to find new friends to get new views on everything and try to get tolerant on everyone - even if it's hard because you grew up in "your culture" and this is what formed you...

Had a few ones now and they all were great, so I'm ready for more... Create your own visitor map!
