About Me

ABOUT ME

Hola!

I'm working on my thesis for the universtiy during the day and in the afternoon and evenings I hope to meet some nice people here :)
Looking forward to exploring the city, grabbing a beer, eating paella ;-)
Also, I love to play beach volleyball, so if you are up for that, I would love it!

CURRENT MISSION

See more of Europe! Because I've realised that I don't have to fly 10 hours to see beautiful spots and meet interesting people, plus it's much better for the environment :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I've had an inspiring moment with a guest family in Hawaii: I had to see a doctor and was about to go to the front desk to pay the bill, when they told me, that they had already paid for it, because back when they were young and travelling around, they met so many people who helped them out, that now they want to give something back and asked me to give something back to other people whenever I can. I've been thinking about this a lot and I'm trying my best, that's the spirit that I love about CS.

Interests

I like being active, but also I can enjoy a quiet evening.
I do different sports, I am in a football team, but also like to play volleyball or badminton.
I'm really into psychology/psychiatry, I am probably going to work in that field and have read a lot about how the human brain works, how to make most of yourself, how to change perspectives etc.
