About Me

CURRENT MISSION

enjoooooyyyyyyy!! and share :) and enjoy... and share...

ABOUT ME

A little bit of everything :) Mostly shining and crazy, but also serious if necessary... I love to meet new people, opinions and cultures! I'm quite well organized and love my life, my friends, my flat, my city, my job, my family.
But sometimes (often!) life is more than that and I always enjoy letting go and just enjoy time with a (new) friend on my side :)
Nothing is greater than going home at 6 in the morning after a long night...sitting on terrace with breakfast and coffee and enjoy sunrise!

Some of my friends told me that, at the first impression, I talk a lot and have kind of a "bubbling" personality ... I guess you either like bubbles or you don't =)

I like people who stand for who they are, what ever they are! I prefer discovering other points of view than mine, I'm really into discussing and exchanging.

I am super curious, nothing I can do about that ... will always ask silly questions and laugh about how the world could be if it wasn't the way it is.

PHILOSOPHY

"Life is what happens, while you are busy making other plans!"
... so let's plan a lot ;)

"Never confuse movement with action."
... so let's move and act ;)

"It takes a long time to be young."
... so let's work on it !

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Why would you NOT want to be on Couchsurfing ?

I don't know any other way to have great encounters everywhere you go. To learn something everywhwere you go. And to be spontaneous to go anywhere you want. I'm terribly curious and could not imagine how I could still my hunger of learning without meeting new people with new opinions and stories :)

I love the concept, and every fan I can win among my nearest friends, is one serious couchsurfer more :) I hope I will host some people, even if my couch is not always available...and at least: I hope to bring a lot of positives experiences to everybody I will couchsurf with!!

HOW I CONTRIBUTE

I hope the swiss chocolate I distributed throughout the world to my hosts is kind of participation ;)

I believe that being a couchsurfer and host is finally a lot about respect and interest, stay open minded and curious, thats the best way to participate !

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

My first time, I went to Berlin with a friend, and we surfed with two amazing hosts. We had close contact before by phone, and honestly I felt like knowing the girls for ever :)
Could not wish better for a first experience, thx girls!

2009: by now 3 incredible host experiences, and joining these great meetings in Zürich. Short travels to Italy, Spain, Hungary and Paris with Susanne :)

2010: Australia rocks! First time completely on my own! It's amazing, CS keeps you alive when you feel lonely, and make you get the best out of every place!

2011 ... 12... 2017 ... and more to come. Seriously there is too many now to come up with new descriptions for each ;)
I'm laughing when people call me an "experienced" couchsurfer, which actually means NOTHING, 'cause the best still is to come for sure.

Nowadays, I just can't imagine my life without cs.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I saw Sardegna and Corsica from the sky and then jumped out of the plane ;)

I went to cs meeting with my mam !!

A breathtaking view from underneath the JimJim Falls, Nothern Territory, Australia ... I had to hold my breath.
