ME IS ALIVE :)
New Zealand is a lost paradise :) I have been travelling around NZ for more than a month and I have enjoyed every step of the way!!
Now I find myself in a completely different Australia. Just started to explore it and looking forward to amazing journeys.
Exploring people and myself, listening to silence on mountain tops, meeting new people, eating good food. That's my life right now and I LOVE IT :)
But in general, just for you to get an impression of what I am like here is a short description:
I am a sunny person, funny, creative. I love life, experiencing it to the fullest, meeting people, sharing thoughts, learning constantly how to become a better me and influencing others.
So - the skies is the limit, hope to meet some of you and expand my universe :)
The motion keeps my heart running
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Trying to attend local meetings.
Have couch surfed once last year in Amsterdam. Had a great time and met an amazing person who've become a great friend. I am so amazed by this community, that now, travelling to NZ and Australia - I am looking forward to becoming an integral part of it. Cheers :)
Countless to be enough to fill one lifetime.
Music, pastry and cooking, reading under the blue skies, extreme sports (sky diving), horseback riding, people, stories, pushing myself to the limit, exploring the world, trekking, nature.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Rocked my soul at Werchter Rock Festival in Belgium last year.
And a couple of weeks ago I swam with Dusky Dolphins. Such a privilege to be amongst these wild intelligent animals...
Teach, Learn, Share
An insane combination of interests contributed to me being a biologist turned into software engineer while studying to be a coached pastry chef (yam!). I'd love to talk about biological studies (I love reading about new scientific breakthroughs), animal behaviour research, "green" issues such as conservation and recycling. I can teach about networking and cellular products. And the loveliest part of it all is that in the midst of the deep conversations I can make a Crepe Suzette, apple strudel, lemon pie or just some chocolate chip cookies to have with the coffee and teach you all about bread dough preparation.
