ABOUT ME

I am a positive, dynamic and inquisitive person! :) I love nature, food, sport, dance, cinema, contemporary art, fashion and parties! Meet me to find out more!

NB: I would like to apologize in advance for not being able to respond to all the CS requests! My job is pretty busy at times, therefore I find it challenging to maintain a 100% reply rate!

PHILOSOPHY

“People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don't even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child -- our own two eyes. All is a miracle.” (Thich Nhat Hanh) "The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why." Mark Twain Everything you do in you life will be very insignificant, but it is very important that you do it. (Ghandi) People often say that this or that person has not yet found himself. But the self is not something one finds, it is something one creates. ~Thomas Szasz "If nobody pushed or pulled us, we would be perfect circles instead of stars." -Susan Obrant Only after the last tree is cut down, the last of the water poisoned,the last animal destroyed... Only then will you realize you cannot eat money... (Cree Indian prophecy) ‎I don’t know where I’m at in life, but I just know I want to win in life. (Mike Tyson) Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible. (Dalai Lama) Losers are just winners who quit…. Even if you lose… you still win, if you don’t quit. (Mike Tyson) Life is like photography, we develop from the negatives. (anonymous) The more you sweat in peace, the less you bleed in war.

Hosting and Surfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have had quite a few memorable experiences for which I am truly thankful.

Interests

I love keeping myself fit and healthy, happy and satisfied! Love learning languages (working really hard on my German and Spanish right now), being active in all ways possible! Love salsa (basically all arts of booty shaking, the so called dancing) and sport! I love eating good food, but I am not good at cooking it! Luckily, this is my flatmate's passion... I am currently exploring/rediscovering Europe bit by bit, but would love to go to South America (again), South-East Asia and Australia, where you can experience cultures so distant from ours (or maybe not so much). These are also places of great natural richness and diversity, where you can immerse yourself completely...

Music, Movies & Books

Music: indie rock, indie pop, house, some rock classics but basically anything that strkes a chord... Movies: there are just so many... Anything directed by Scorsese, Coen brothers, Almodovar, Ang Lee, Sean Penn, Clint Eastwood Books: at the moment I am the ultimate blog junkie: I would read any interesting piece on the internet on travelling, healthy cooking and eating, sport, dance, art, fashion and health and sustainability issues.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Flew over the Mediterranean from Marocco to Italy in an old shabby plane with only two other passengers in the worst storm of my life. The members of the very polite Austrian crew were trying to reassure us everything was under control, but we could see them secretly cross themselves and pray in the cockpit. I have to admit I didn't have time to feel scared, because I was too busy enjoying the experience.

Teach, Learn, Share

We are always mature until someone pulls out the bubble wrap. Simplicity is the key to successful living. Life is either a great adventure or nothing. If you always try to get to the top, you won't get to the bottom of anything. Sometimes we don't know the true value of a moment until it becomes a memory.
