About Me

CURRENT MISSION

...Don´t count the days, make the days count...

ABOUT ME

I´m a friendly, helpful and happy person. I wake up with a smile and fall asleep with a smile. I like lazy days and active days as well. Travelling is my passion. I enjoy cooking for other people;-))))
I love books, Berlin, coffee, marzipan, tea rooms, rose wine, fruits, tulips, scarves, earrings, ART in general, my friends and family, crazy ideas, languages, to smile, to take pictures, to breathe fresh air, walk barefoot, smell of the sea, sunglasses, brunching, mad dog, well cockatils in general and to enjoy my life every day by appreciating all the small things which surrounds me and live it to the fullest...

Less important info: I don´t drink beer, I don´t eat fish nor seafood and don´t like salsa! But let´s concentrate on things I do like and enjoy doing!

After belly dance & flamenco I tried to learn some basic steps of Gypsy dance (I love the energy and emotions of all these dances) and started to learn a new language (Arabic) ;-)))
Update: Berlin being so distracting I just realized I need to get back to dancing and language learning :-)

PHILOSOPHY

No worries there is always a way, a solution... when the sun is shining, the friends are around you, your love makes you feel the greatest person ever and there is still something to dream about then it´s worth to wake up with joy;-)
