About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Explore South East Europe!

ABOUT ME

Ah, the pressure of an empty box and the comforting words below - "A description of yourself. You can include anything at all."
My favourite pie is blueberry pie, I'm a jazz fan but I also LOVE to go out clubbing to the latest house hits, I've always loved reading books and have a weak spot for magic realism (Rushdie, García Márquez, Allende) and like everyone else on this site (hopefully) I love meeting new people and experiencing new things! Always try everything once :) ...which is why I mountainbiked down a mountain in the alpes last summer.. Hella scary, but a lot of fun! :D
I love food! I love eating food and I love cooking, especially with friends, when you have the time to have a glass of wine while cooking, with some Billie Holiday in the background :)
I really like photography and am trying to get better in the technical area, which to be honest kind of bores me.. but it's essential to know if you want to be able to control the creative part! So it's a work in progress :)

'Nuff said. The most important bit was the blueberry pie-part anyway.. :P

PHILOSOPHY

I like to challenge myself and it doesn't always turn out the way I expect, but you always learn something from every new experience! Which is why I have as a personal philosophy (with some exceptions): always try everything once :)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

None so far! Really looking forward to trying it out! :)

Interests

Ok, things I'm interested in, not necessarily in that order are:

Travelling, food, photography, sports (practising, not watching), dancing, partying, music, singing, wine, books, movies, tv-series, languages, learning new things, experiencing new things, meeting new people, hanging out with old friends, and lots lots more!

Music, Movies & Books

Too many. It would be a list of spam-like proportions... Let's just say I have an interest in movies, music and books, if you do too I'm sure we'll have something to talk about! :P

Just to namedrop, some of my favourite movies are: El Laberinto del Fauno, The Princess Bride, Crash, Serenity, Atonement and Hero (Ying Xiong)

Music: Robyn, John Mayer, Jason Mraz, Veronica Maggio, Erik Satie, Mozart, Swedish House Mafia, Tiësto, Billie Holiday, Chet Baker... Quite a mix!

Books (Authors): Allende, Rushdie, García Márquez, Pullman, Dostojevskij, Gaarder, Fredriksson... and more.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I'm going to be a bit cheeky and say my around-the-world-trip, which technically is a bit more than ONE thing... but it was still amazing! :P

Teach, Learn, Share

I know a bit about photography, but I would love to learn more so that's a two-sided thing!
I can sing, don't know if I would be a good teacher though, but if you're keen I could try :)
