About Me


Be present and spontaneous, laughing and dancing along the way.


I'm an easygoing, cheerful and curious person who tries to take the best out of any situation that I come across.


If you love life, life will love you back

When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be. (Lao Tzu)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I believe only through meeting locals, staying at their place or eating their food you can get to know the place you are visiting.
It's also incredibly interesting to observe how we can all be the same while at the same time have our cultures often define who we are and how we act.


Snowboarding, climbing, exploring new, unusual places, dancing (tango, ecstatic dance, acrobatic rock'n'roll, boogie woogie, etc.), just started to play harmonica, did bossaball etc.
