About Me


Get started hosting travelers. Learn to meditate. Travel again as soon as possible.


I am a 23 year old postgraduate student with a passion for travel, food and international encounters.

I have recently moved to Augsburg for my master's degree and want to start hosting and "giving back" now. I have received so much kindness and generosity whilst Couchsurfing and I want to repay the community and indeed live up to the CS spirit by hosting myself.

I love sharing parts of my culture and much more learnig something new.

I´m quite fascinated by languages and always like to learn a few words of a new language.


"A traveller is a person who enjoys his life to the fullest"

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have mostly used CS as a guest, but also hosted the newly made friends during their travels. Also keen to host surfers.


I have only made positive experiences so far and made some lifelong friends along the way.


Sports, whether it's practicing it myself or being lazy and watching it on TV

Food, food, food, all types of beer. I want to start brewing my own beer soon!

A passion of mine is learning languages. I speak English, French and Spanish and also joined a Chinese class at university.

I have played the drums and the piano before, but gave that up when I became too lazy to practice. Would love to learn to play the guitar.
