About Me


Explore life, learn as much as I can, be in harmony with my surroundings, be healthy help others and enjoy every moment, good or bad


I think my friends would say that I am a very active and social person. They would say that I am a sensitive person that enjoys company and that I am a good listener. Besides that they might say that I am have two very different sides in my character. One side is outgoing and spontaneous the other side is more silent and contemplative. They would say that sometimes I just need to be by myself to think about everything and be silent and on other moments I am in the middle of everything, chatting, laughing and engaged in conversations about trivial and non-trivial things. Last but not least I think they would say that I am a reliable person that is always there for them when they need me.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am totally new in the world of CouchSurfing. I am currently at the European Summer School of Logic Language and Information in Opole, Poland. After this summerschool finishes this friday I have a bit over a week to travel, and I would like to go hiking in the mountains and visit Krakow. I was originally going with a friend but at the last moment he was unable to join me and now I find myself traveling by myself. Therefore I was thinking it might be the right moment to try out some couchsurfing experience and meet some local people while I am visiting Krakow.


I find choosing one of the most difficult things in life because I am interessted in so many things. I love art, culture and theatre, I went to a theatre school for 4 years to become a theatre theacher and director. Besides that I also love science and studying. After theatre school I did a Bachelor in philosophy which I just finished and I will now start my master in logic. I'm am very much interessted in observing and analysing how people act and reason, I studied that as well in theatre as in philosophy and logic. But I also really value being in the here and now in a more direct and fysical sense. I love listening to music or playing music myself (I play the violin). Besides that I do sports like running, rowing and swimming and I just started to practice yoga and meditation. I love (vegan) food and coocking, and I enjoy going walking or hiking in nature. But my biggest hobby is perhaps dancing, I can litteraly dance for many hours in a row.
