About Me

I am a passionate interior design major at the University of Cincinnati in Ohio, and I am currently living in Hamburg, Germany for an internship, and I spent 4 months in Stuttgart for an exchange semester. I love traveling (obviously), meeting new people and learning about their culture and experiences. I am doing yoga to find peace when I can, and I could sit in front of a building sketching and watercoloring for hours.

I know I am not verified, but if you need more verification that I am who I say I am, you can see my Facebook here, https://www.facebook.com/elenacatherinet

Sadly, I have been unable to host people since I have been living in shared accommodations with no extra couch to lend out, but as soon as I have the opportunity, I will be sharing my space as often as possible.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

The beautifully interesting lives of the people I meet from other cultures continuously inspires me. Couchsurfing is a continuous reminder to keep my head up and stay positive, because there are really great people out there, and there is hope for this world.

I used to want to travel the world just to see it and say I've been there. But now, I want to travel for the experiences. I grow and learn every time I travel and it always fills my heart.

Music, Movies, and Books

I enjoy almost all genres of music, but my favorites are Hip-Hop and Electronic, Chillstep and some pop here and there. I really just enjoy any music that I can dance to. Something you will hear at a music festival is what you'll find on my playlist.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

My class and I traveled to Budapest and visited 8 spas in 5 days, all for a school project where we proposed a new design concept for one of those spas in Budapest.

Teach, Learn, Share

I could teach you how to dance with a hula-hoop. I would love to learn more languages. I will share stories, drinks, food, ideas, and whatever else your heart desires.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Kindness, love, and knowledge! I can do a postcard sized sketch for you as well if you would like!
