coming back from Brazil and Argentina... and discover Eastern Europe
.....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
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 and met people in Mexico, Argentina, Cuba, USA, Brazil, Uruguay.... thank you!
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!" :)
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... I like to try out new and extreme stuff
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)
- working out
- scuba diving
- bungee jumping
Music, Movies, and Books
Simone de Beauvoir, Barbara Muraka, Piketty, Paech, Follet, Esquivel, Goethe, Kafka.... and....
Austrian cinema, Ripstein, Tarantino, Sans toit ni loi (Agnes Varda),
I am trying to get away from what we call "the classics" and read more women and people of colour and get away from the literature of white heterosexual men
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);)
loving with all my heart
Teach, Learn, Share
languages, poems, dances, economic theories, historic connections, Mexicas culture and a veeery critical perspective on Europe´s politics, feminist & queer ideas... 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 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 my so so portugese) :P
...and tons of other things we can think about.... light the matches... GO!
