About Me

CURRENT MISSION

studying for one semester in the South of Brazil and mastering one of my biggest weaknesses: everyday life
making small trips before leaving once again for a big Latin America trip in December

ABOUT ME

.....traveling around and trying to get inspiration from the variety of places I visit and the great people I meet, open up my horizon, leave my comfort zone... learn from everything life has to offer me- and enjoy the now!

I love all kinds of art and adventures.... concerning the first one especially dance theater. Although I would love to be able to spend more time on this, I am not participating in a piece right now.

Back in the days when my life had some sort of order I used to write for a newspaper, work for a radio and as a production assitant in video productions... now after spending most of my "adult" life in France and Berlin-
I´m letting myself be amazed by the American continent.... getting to know people, let creativity flow and (pragmatic side speaking^^) improving my language skills :D

PHILOSOPHY

Be confident
Have fun,
and everything will come

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I have had several coffee or drinks while I was in Paris and built some amazing friendships there...

I have met hosts, travel buddies and sooo many amazing people on this site.
Before CS went corporate I unconditionally looked at it like my family.... I used to say "the concept of nation makes no sense to me what so ever- we´re supposed to feel connected to the people who by chance were born on a piece of land (supposently) not so far from ours while excluding others because of imaginative borders?! my nation would be couchsurfing!" :)

Interests

Political Activism in different forms- and looking for alternative forms of living together- Economic Degrowth has become a keyword for me..

Reading!! Reading. READING!

reflect on life and trying to work out my demons is something I don´t always enjoy, but can´t stop doing...

Making films that have political relevance

Sports: all kinds of, at the moment Capoeira
dancing: whenever, wherever ...however^^

Going out with my friends, discuss, eat, drink, write... and savour the moment!

Traveling... if I had the money I´d spend my whole life travelling, travelling, travelling- and never settling down :)
(it´s kind of what I am doing anyway)

Music, Movies & Books

Simone de Beauvoir, Muraka, Piketty, Paech, Cohelo, Follet, Esquivel, Goethe, Kafka.... my interest in books has no end and not really a system

Tarantino, Austrian cinema, Burton

One Amazing Thing I've Done

...most recently: eating fire in the desert of slab city and following the white rabbit

a Hamam in rural Morocco with an elderly arabic woman who I couldn´t verbally communicate with

crying on stage

disapeapearing into the Mexican jungle for a few days

sky diving... (1 tick on the things to do before I die list);)

bungee jumping

loving with all my heart

Teach, Learn, Share

languages, poems, dances, economic theories, historic connections, Mexicas culture... getting loose...

want to learn more about handcrafts mainly with wood but I am open for anything... the plan is to come closer and closer to a diy-form of independence :)

whenever I get to a place I also want to hear about the stuff you´re don´t necessarily see from the outside and that only a local can explain to you- like how google and co is killing San Francisco for example etc etc

CIRCUSstuff!!! (playing with fire, juggling, acrobacy)

What I Can Share With Hosts

I can teach you how to stand on your hands!! :D

I can make you crêpes!

....and you can practice English, French, German or Spanish with me (and very basic portugese) :P
