About Me


Keeping the summer at heart. And travel. And if not work enough to travel again 😊


Well, I am an easygoing, down-to-earth and funny person. I love travelling by myself most as it's the best way to get to know new people. But I feel it's necessary to say that I'm not doing that order to get laid, so please no hideous offers 😉
Ever since I'm small I travel a lot and never could stop that for too long. The more I see of the world the more I know about myself and that's about an amazing feeling. Also to know someone in every country is so cool and gives you the idea that the world isn't that big after all.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I enjoy both hosting and surfing and like gaining new experiences :)


So far only good!! :)


I am a dancer, so you'll see me dancing and vibing all the time. Also I am great in bringing up a song to every word you say. The right song at the right time is everything. I am a bit of a maniac there I think 😀
Photography, cooking, even more: eating, walking and discovering new cities, getting lost in nature are things I highly enjoy.

Music, Movies, and Books

I enjoy Dancehall, soca, Reggae, Neo-Soul, hip hop, and Kiwi Music, in generell New Zealand took a big part now in my heart. But recently I am also much into Urban beats and bachata.

Movies. Hm I never care so much for the titles, but I remember the secret window, fight club, inception, wish I was here and the grand and holy Lord of the Rings

Books - currently I finished 7 years in Tibet and the Alchemist which were great recommendations!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Backpacking for 10 months in New Zealand has opened my mind!
Doing a skydive from 15'000 ft! Hell yes!
I did a triathlon - wohooo!
I swam in the big waves at hippies beach, Tenerife when the sun set.
I decided to study 2 years abroad!

Teach, Learn, Share

Oh cool!
I can teach: Dancing, writing Elvish, Swimming techniques (I did triathlon for a while), some good recipes, pretty much about how to enjoy my hometown Leipzig, chocolate culture (worked in a chocolate shop for 3 years).
I'd love to learn Spanish and Swedish as I started both. I like photography, so show me what you've got! In general I like to learn!
