About Me




i am very passionate about nature and i often enjoy getting away from the busy city ( even though i also appreciate all the opportunities!) I am mostly vegan and i am very interested in cooking. i often experiment with different tastes and always enjoy something new!


"Ich bin Leben, das leben will, inmitten von Leben, das leben will." -Albert Schweitzer

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I joined because I think it's a wonderful and unique way of traveling an meeting people. Going to a new city is a whole different thing with insider information, a home and a friend. Hosting people is also almost giving you the imperssion you are traveling yourself since you are learing so much about other lifestyles and cultures - everyone enriched my life!


After high school i traveled through Portugal and i had such a great time! i couchsurfed in many different places with so many unique individuals! without them i wouldnt have seen or done as many amazing things as i have while i was out there. couchsurfing frees you a little bit from being a tourist =)
