About Me

Exploring the world. Finding (or carving out) my place :)

Nurse with a knack for spirituality, looking for the perfect balance between modern science and traditional practices. Feeling a call towards Healing in general, so trying to find out what is there to learn... Also gripped by the elemental world, so seeing where it takes me. Plus I was quite a computer geek, am an adventurer, photographer among other things that catch my fancy ;)

If I had to choose one phrase, it would be the old "An ye harm none, do as thou whilst."

Love has become the single most important word/feeling/essence nowadays, and all my actions whirl around it. It is, after all, the answer to every question I might ask. Which doesn't prevent me from looking for other, funnier answers =P

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Surfing, hosting, meeting, guiding, advising...

Hosting was my first experience and it was awesome, I had lots of fun with a group of Belgium folks.

Surfing came up eventually, and it was also a marvelous time that I spent with a group of people in Strasbourg - thanks for everything! Had some very interesting conversations with Hannah in Basel as well. After that, it became natural and nowadays I don't even consider renting a room at a hostel... CS is the way to go!

I've surfed plenty of couches, hosted over 100 guests and each and every experience was positive one. Please don't ruin my track record :D

*******IMPORTANT NOTE*******
CouchSurfing calls me old school. I guess I've been around for a while. I still remember the time when connections were made on a personal level, when surfer and host would be picky when choosing each other and through a couch-request you would woo the host into accepting you. Tell me why I should accept to host you and what fun things we can do or learn together. If you don't bother, I won't bother. I found my Love through a proper CS request. It was Love at first message. Just a hint. *wink* Oh and we won't get to know each other in less than two nights... I'd prefer longer periods :)
