About Me


Getting to know Brazilian culture, getting to know Brazilian people, getting to speak Portugese, getting to play capoeira, getting to eat and cook Brazilian, getting to party Brazilian style. Get it? I am going to Brazil!


What to say about myself? I just found a report on my behavior in the first group of primary school (when I was 4). The schoolteacher described me as 'spontaneous, well-balanced, sympathetic and compassionate.' Even though I am 19 years older now I think that description still quite suits me.


Don't have one. But perhaps the fact that I was drawn to a bar called the don't-worry-be-happy-bar (Basel, Switzerland) does say something about me? (btw: It had the worst interior for a bar I could ever imagine)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


None. Until so far I only slept at couches of friends or friends of friends. But I am looking forward to trying out the 'real' couchsurfing.


I love to do capoeira, sail, snowboard, learn portugese, climb, read books, go out, and hang out with friends. And of course I love to meet knew people ;)
