About Me


Enjoying life!


I'm a 24-year-old girl from Germany. I grew up in the South of Germany (Pforzheim, Baden-Württemberg) but right now I live in Essen, which is in the West of Germany, where I study since almost 3 years. I really enjoy my time at university because life is still quite easy and you can meet people from all over the world.


Well I don't really have a philosophy. I try to always be open towards new people and experiences and just enjoy life as best as I can.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I surfed in Vienna, Krakow and Copenhagen together with Jeanne Baur https://www.couchsurfing.org/people/je_anne/


I like travelling (of course), hanging out with friends, going to concerts/festivals, reading, dancing or just relaxing in the sun.

Music, Movies, and Books

There are many great movies, but I think the Lord of Rings trilogy is something I could watch a thousand times.
I like all kinds of music ranging from pop, hip hop to electro to rock/metal. The only thing I incredibly hate is German Schlager.
Books.. there are too many to mention them all.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

In summer 2008 me and my friends were in Barcelona and I had the very best Mojito ever. It was a tiny little bar near the Ramblas run by one single man. Enjoying this amazing cocktail together with my friends at the sea is something I will always remember. I think it's always the little things that make your trip unique.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you some German, especially the Swabian dialect which sounds extremly akward :), and other typical German customs. And since my last couchsurfing experience in Copenhagen I know how to make Spätzle, probably the best food German people ever created.
