About Me


Have an interesting life, live in different places, learn about cultures and languages


I loved the time I spend abroad, you meet interesting people and learn a lot about other cultures and ways of life. I would love to speak a lot of languages (I am working on that). I have lived in Cracow for more then a year, where I really enjoyed meeting up with the couchsurf community. Since January I am living and working in Berlin. It is a big city, so I am still exploring (with pleasure)...


Life is short, so follow your dreams
