About Me


To create memories, live experiences and meet the world


I am a Swiss South-African who loves life! I love to learn new things, meet new people and create awesome memories. I love spontaneity and the little-things in life. I am open-minded and fun-loving and I love to laugh. The only downside to my personality is that I am positively mad :P Life's too short to be normal though right?


Things turn out best for those who make the best of the way things turn out.

Most people are reasonable, that's why they only do reasonably well

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am doing my Bachelors in Graphic Design in Geneva while Nannying part-time which helps a lot with studies (I bet you're thinking Mary Poppins right now - no I don't have that awesome bag that has EVERYTHING in it)
Anywho being a nanny I live with my hostparents and seeing as it is not my house, I cannot host anyone but one day when I get my own place I will definitely buy a comfy couch for couch-surfers. I can always meet up for coffee and attempt to discover the city with you :)


Amsterdam, Lausanne, Bern, Washington D.C, Geneva, Vienna
