About Me


Looking for a houseboat!


I've never managed to describe someone in words, especially not myself. The only thing I could compare myself to would probably be a chameleon... I change colours and moods every day an adapt myself differently at every new place.
But most people say that I am a very honest, sometimes too spontaneous, open-minded person that is talented in languages, open for everything, understands a lot, has no shame and likes going out, dancing, playing music, swimming, if the atmosphere is good I´m happy.


don´t think and worry too much about things that can't be changed. Enjoy the now, it's all you have.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I just enjoy meeting new people, especially when I'm traveling but never really feel comfortable in Hotels or Hostels. Maybe it's the vibes, I don't know, but I just enjoy having a little insight into the lifestyle of a local person, helping to cook something nice, or actually helping doing things in general, doing sports, having good conversations, going for a walk(or a little hike<3!), and sharing a good time together :) why else should I be traveling if not to meet inspiring people?


botany, innovative and future orientated projects, organic farming, permaculture, designing things out of recycled materials,
all kinds of sport, especially water and beach sport,
at the Moment I'm interested in Meditation and Yoga,
arts, photography, museums, culture,
reading sonetimes,
singing sometimes,
drawing sometimes...
I'm interested in so many things and want to learn from everyone about everything and am also very happy teaching things .

My future visions&dreams are to buy some land somewhere in portugal or south america und start building on it, creating a little community that can live more self-sustainable, with a massive wild garden, animals etc..

Another dream is to sail for a whike around the world.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

maybe that I landed on a 100 meter long transport ship with two dutch people by coincidence. I actually wanted to cycle from Basel to Rotterdam but everythig turned out so much better.
I volunteered at a nudist Homestay in Australia for three months!
And after that started enjoying nudism so much that I went for a naked hike in Lüneburger Heide which was probably the best day of my life

Teach, Learn, Share

ASK. Always ask, as it doesn't cost you anything but a little bit of confidence.
Be open
and love!

What I Can Share with Hosts

We live in a nice little community not far from the train station, we have a lot going on here as we are a very active group of people! If I have time I can show you around, go for a walk in the forest just round the corner, can take you to a yoga class, if you like going out I usually know what's going on and enjoy having some drinks and a lot more!
What bed or room will be free is always different!

Countries I’ve Lived In

Australia, England, France, Germany, Switzerland
