About Me


getting to know Sweden :)


I am an open-minded, curious, cheerful and adventurous person. I just love travelling and getting to know all kind of different cultures and people from around the world. That´s why I love couchsurfing.

Aaaand I am a scientist and currently investigating Apollo samples (yes, samples from the Moon :))


It's not the places you go, but the people you meet!

Carpe diem!
