About Me


Be cosmic!


I consider myself a NOwhere-NOWhere person, meaning that I don't feel particularily FROM anywhere and that I like to live my life NOW, not later. I certainly cannot deny my german-mexican roots, which seem to determine my travel interests a little :) I'm a student of literature and I LOVE it. I LOVE my boyfriend and I love it. I am happy and I LOVE it. :)


Make the best out of everything and every situation!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'll give a home/couch to everyone who needs one and I'll try to make this work, because I think we need to be connected to more different persons in our lives and CS makes it possible.


I have made such wonderful experiences that I do not want to miss this opportunity anymore.


I like trying out new stuff all the times, am rather spontaneous and simply love life.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Wandering through the ruins of Palenque was really freakin amazing! - and Tonina was even better.

Teach, Learn, Share

If I really could, I'd love to learn more languages. Next on list: Portuguese and croatian. Arabic would also be cool. And all for the sake of literature, because I am convinced that books are better enjoyed in there original language.
What I have to share and teach will have to be decided individually, I guess. But I am here to share my couch and so I'll also share a moment of my life.
