About Me

I'm a student in the lovely city Münster. Next to studying I work in a bakery, as a waitress in haute cuisine and as a horse groomer for 150 ponies and horses.

My boyfriend is a researcher in law and social scientist, is very much into (persian) poetry and literature (especially Ferdowsi, Saadi and Hafez, Goethe and Brecht).

Both of us are open-minded, tolerant and very much interested in all kinds of things such as (of course) literature and poetry, theatre, history and cinema. We are very easy going and I can promise you it will never get boring with us!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

because I believe in this quote:

„Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.” -Mark Twain

And also... to get to know locals, to make unforgettable experiences and to establish friendships all over the world. I just love the idea of providing the best you can for someone and them doing the same for you one day when you will visit them!

Interests

playing the Violin, horse back riding, reading, podcasts, news, going for walks, hiking, museums, opera, (film) photography, (Oldtimer) cars: especially Volvo, art, architecture&interior design, fashion, arthouse cinema, philosophy
