About Me


Having Fun! Enjoying life!


I am an open-minded and easy going person and love to do exciting, spontanious trips. Or... the heck.. travel the world :)
I worked as a kindergarten teacher for a couple of years. Then I moved to New York and lived there for one year. I've traveled all over the States and have seen a lot of cool places and met even more cool people.
I don't mind partying - I also like hanging out with friends and enjoying a glass of wine. I love meeting people and hearing interesting stories out of their lifes.

October 2013 I came back to Austria - I love it, I love the mountains, I love skiing, but I am not a big fan of the cold, just saying.
And that is why I left Austria again to backpack through Southeastasia for 4 months! I've been in Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and Cambodia.
I loved it, enjoyed the beaches and met a lot of amazing people. After Asia my younger brother and I did another Trip to Iceland, Netherlands and Belgium.

Since September 2014 I work as an After-school teacher in Wels, Upper Austria.


Live your life now! Don't miss anything. Enjoy it. Stop complaining! Think positive! Don't be whiny! Have fun! Do what you want to do, but do it, don't wait, be open to meet new people!
And the most important thing: HAVE FUN!

My philosophy: go with the flow, surf the wave and dance to the beat of your own drum!

CS is awesome. It's so easy to meet new poeple. I've crashed a lot of couches and I also offer my couches as long as I have time
