About Me


skating and growing algae


I live here in Karlsruhe for two years now, still I get frequently lost. I am a passionate scientist, with a rather rational view on everything.


don't say you don't like it before you haven't tried it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I had many different couch surfing phases in many different appartments. circumstances in my last appartments did not permit hosting...I just moved in with my boyfriend. We do accept guests, but it strongly depends on the length of your stay and if you need a couch on workdays or weekends (prefered).


I have only made completely positive experiences so far, and even found my very best friend in sweden.


I play roller derby and piano :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

"surfing" the ponta de piedade (portugal) on an air - matress because we dind't want to afford the 10 Euro for a boat trip. This trip took us 3 hours under the burning sun and caused 3 days of pain (sunburn at its best)...But I'll never forget the faces of the rescue team who thought we were totally crazy and wanted to fish us out of the water...

Teach, Learn, Share

I can offer a place at my dining table and some biotech expertise.

I would love to learn some words of a new language or being teached in foreign cuisine or get piano lessons :D. Piano available :)
