About Me

Being rich in life is nothing about money. It´s the sum of all memories, experiences, dreams and especially the people in our life.

There is only one life and I'm trying to make the best out of it. Therefore, travelling is a great way to experience life, get to know new things, cultures, philosophies, people and also yourself! ;-)

I consider myself very multifaceted. I'm interested in spirituality, personal development, focused on my career and future, but also love going out for dancing and just having fun with my girlfriends. I enjoy travelling without any plans and just be the moment ...

about my path of life:
I grew up on the countryside in Austria and moved to Vienna to study Psychology, which I finished 2014.

In 2012 I studied in Australia as an exchange student, after that I was travelling for about 2 months across Australia, through New Zealand and also around South-East Asia. There I also got infected with the travel bug, and at the latest since my trip to Guatemala this year, I swore to myself that I gotta do a trip to another continent each year!! :D

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I started CS cause a friend kind of forced me to try it out :D but it turned out to be pretty okay.

By now I've so many great memories I owe to CS. Mostly during my trip through Asia as I couchsurfed a lot there. But also anywhere else I met great and generous people, so I'm grateful of being a part!


Dancing!! I really love it!! :D Also am in a cheerdance team.

Besides that I also really enjoy travelling and spending time in nature. I like listening to music and go to concerts from rock concerts/festivals to classical music. I enjoy art and also paint a little myself.

In the winter I love going snowboarding and in the summer I love to swim or dive ;)
