About Me


My heart is full of hopes and dreams and i love the feeling of waking up not knowing what each new day will bring. I love to be around the people i hold dear and share moments of happiness and the moments of life´s madness with them. I´m crazy about hitch-hiking and i´m always in the mood for some adventures and getting lost in the middle of nowhere....just to experience these short moments of freedom when you can´t imagine whats gonna happen next....when nothing is impossible anymore and you learn to appreciate that the little things are the big things in life. I love sleeping under starry skies, being waked up by the first sun rays, smiling at strangers and brighten up their day for a second, meeting new people and making friends, hug and joy filled hellos and good-byes. Being on the road, exploring new lands and meeting its people is one of my dearest passions. I value thoughtfulness, sincerity, kindness, and honesty and i probably spend too much time worrying about questions like "When was the last time you did something for the first time...?"

I wrote this description about myself when i was 20...and i´m happy that there is no need to edit it 12 years later =)


...rage, rage against the dying of the light...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I try to host as often as i can but it used to become less since i am working now...but i want to recipocrate all the nice things that i received and provide a cosy home for people out on the road.

I have been a member of couchsurfing since 2004 and it was one of the best things I came across…(after punkrock, feminism and hitchhiking of course=)…I have met a lot of great people and a lot of nice memories come to my mind when I think about the hosting and surfing experiences I made throughout the last couple of years.
