About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Settle down in Berlin.

ABOUT ME

I am open-minded, sociable, and interested in many directions... Can't stand routine, I always need changes, different colours and spices and in my life.

Sometimes I am talkative, sometimes more calm. But I always enjoy to have nice people around me!

I love the coincidences that life brings, and the unique moments that make you feel alive intensively.

PHILOSOPHY

Walk as if you are kissing the Earth with your feet.

A Buddhist wisdom

- and my personal objective!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I surfed as well as hosted and participated in some events. So part of the whole bunch of CS activities...

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I surfed a couple of couches and hosted different people, mostly from Capoeira. I really enjoy intercultural exchange and I get inspired by conversations with interesting people...

Interests

I trained Capoeira Angola for 6 years and it became a big part of my life... unfortunately I can't practise it any more, but I will always be a Capoeirista:-)

I like to skate, I love riding on horseback, dance Forró, play the flute, explore countries, landscapes, exciting places and cultures. I am a big fan of Latin America and interested in alternative ways of living, such as permaculture and degrowth! My plan is to live in a community-farm project in a few years...

I enjoy good concerts and creative festivals, chocolate, vivid parties, sitting on roof-tops, sleeping at beaches, hitchhiking, dancing, having inspiring conversations and the little things, that make life beautiful and intense... ;o)

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I flew in between the Andean peaks and incredible cloud formations with a small propeller-driven plane...

Teach, Learn, Share

I can show you the basic step of Salsa, Bachata or Merengue or the very Capoeira basics.

I am vegetarian and there are a lot of people who think that vegeterian food is just carrotts - I can show you that you can eat vegetarian and TASTY!

Or I can try to help you improve your Spanish/German/English skills, as long they are on a basic level:-)
