About Me


Learn. Teach. Share.


I'm curious, open-minded, independent, atypical, polite, not lazy, considerate, adaptable, outspoken, enthusiastic, positive, goal-oriented, natural, unpredictable...

I love:
- hot green tea in the morning
- to try different foods from all over the world
- to organise events/excursions
- being busy
- mother nature and what she has to offer - trees, landscapes, the sun, and food!
- to be mentally and physically challanged.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


couchsurfed my way through europe last summer and now welcoming surfers in my home.


Anything outdoors - camping, hiking, canoeing/kayaking, skiing/snowboarding, biking, etc.
Yoga, Salsa dancing.
Learning, different cultures, trying new things,
Reading, History, Philosophy, Religions, Nutrition.

Music, Movies & Books

Music: I listen to everything, but nothing too extreme.
Movies: don't watch tv, no fave movies
Books: too many faves

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Canoe-camping in snow for a week - it definitely tests your inner strength!
