ABOUT ME

After eight years in Vienna I'm finally back in Vorarlberg, the most western part of Austria, where I grew up.

At the moment I am finishing my studies, and hopefully I'll be a teacher at the end of this summer...

I have a daughter, Ella, who got born in May 2012. She - of course - is my boss... ;)

PHILOSOPHY

Ein freundliches Wort kostet nichts, und dennoch ist es das Schönste aller Geschenke. (Daphne du Maurier)

~ A friendly word dosn't cost a thing, but still it is the most beautyful presents. (Daphne du Maurier)

We have to tell people what we think about them especially when it is something positive. Our daily lives are often hard, we are disappointed, jealous, unsatisfied, angry,... with people and of course they know that.
But there are also positive feelings we have towards them, but we don't tell them often enough.
People can not read our minds, and even if it is a person, we meet every day, and even if we think they know what we are thinking, we have to tell them again, and again and again...
"I like your hair today", "I like the way you talk to other people", "I am proud of you!",...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

In Feb. 2009 one of my dreams came true: I always wanted to touch a living tiger. And I couldn't just touch one but walked with a sibirian and a bengal tiger for one hour, I hugged them, fed them and KISSED one of them! I still can't believe that I did it, but it is true!!!

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm very interested in languages! I studied "german as a foregin language", that meens I could teach a bit of german or of the other languages I speak

I love cooking, and I'm very interesstetd in new recepies!

I do a bit of juggling, I'm not too good but I do know the basics in juggling with balls, diabol, devil sticks and pois

I really would be happy if you could talk to me in Albanian, Afrikaans, Croatian, English, Serbian or Russian, I'm try to learn these languages and it's so important to talk!

Can you bring music from your country?
