About Me

Hi there!

Besides going to university, I work. I really love what I am doing, I'm a workaholic. 🙈 Thus I'm quite busy. Mostly I'm come home late and leave early. Unfortunately that means I have less time for hosting. But send me a request and we will see! :) Also, I love tea - so if you want to get me a gift, than I prefer tea from your home country! ;-)

🐝 Fun-fact: At the beginning of my career I was among other film characters literally acting as Maja the bee.
You will find a pic on my profile.

Oh, I am kind of vegan. Which means, I don't eat meat, dairy products (except some times cheese & chocolate), eggs & so on. But I do eat fish (I am addicted to sushi!).

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To crash one's couch is a thing everyone should try! Or sleeping on the floor. Or in a tent in the garden. Or in the car next to a cemetery.

And yes, last one also happend because of Couchsurfing. Was totally scary. Okay, almost happened. Host wasn't home and then we decided to sleep somewhere else. But maybe it's worth to try!

Interests

I'm a fan of Frida Kahlo's art and the story behind the drawings and of Frida herself . Also, I'm interested in the story of Anne Frank and once, I helped managing an exhibiton about her.

And I love talking to people and hear their life story. That's one of the reasons I am on Couchsurfing. It's not just having a place to sleep - I want that people have unforgettable journeys!

Music, Movies, and Books

I always have a book in my pocket. Prefering realistic novels and I am totally interested in true stories. One of my absolute favorite authors is Alina Bronsky.

Listening to rock music & stuff from the 90ies and early 2000s like KISS, Avril Lavigne, Fall out Boy, Panic at the disco, Mumford & Sons, ...

Oh - and I love to dance (since the age of 12 I dance regularly in sport courses. Mostly Zumba and Modern Dance) - My absolute favorite song is "Walking on sunshine" 🌞

Movies ... I am really into horror movies. There is a hotel in Bulgaria offering a horror-weekend. Definitely wanna go there once! But also watching super dramatically TV shows like Grey's Anatomy (never missed a new episode over the past 10 years). Same applies here: Love 90ties & early 00ties! I am kinda like mainstream here :D.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Try to do at least one amazing thing from my Bucket list every year!

2015 - Spontaneously, I packed my stuff and explored a foreign country (Indonesia) for one month with a stranger, who is now one of my best friends.

2016 - Donated 30 cm length of my hair for a wig for a child with cancer.

2017 - Africa Safari Trip! Met so many great people and totally felt in love with the big 5. We slept in a tent under so many stars, right next to elephants, that was more than amazing!

Teach, Learn, Share

Have you ever heard of Austrian's culture? Do you know grumpy cat? Trust me, this correlation is quite funny! Love telling you.
