About Me

I'm a cheerful and caring person and I enjoy getting to know people, learning from them and finding out what drives them. I think humor is very important and hate days without a laugh. Furthermore, I am creative and love everything that has to do with being creative.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm most active as a host and sometimes meeting up with people. I have a couple of friends through couch surfing and it opened up a world to me. I've surfed some couches as well, but not all through this website.


So far it has been great: fun people and everyone is really open. I love meeting people from all over the world and learn about other cultures.


Travelling, music, cooking, drawing and painting, discovering other cultures, laughing, singing, sports and dancing.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The very best 2 experiences are (in no particular order):
- An exchange in San Diego, California in uni. Meeting so many open minded people, making friends for life and getting to know so many different cultures changed my life and really got the travelling and learning fire burning.

- My South America adventure: I lived, worked and learned spanish in Bolivia and then traveled Bolivia and Peru. I'm still grateful for this opportunity: I met the most friendly locals, worked in the indigenous community with the sweetest kids in the world, learned so much about their amazing culture and on top of all of that got the chance to see more of this beautiful country and it's neighbor Peru.
