About Me

I'm currently taking a 3 month sabbatical from May to August to backpack in Chile, Peru and Bolivia.
I love traveling and meeting people from all over the world, exchanging culture, cuisine and time.
In my free time I am playing badminton, singing in a choir, doing (board/card/Nintendo) games nights or hanging out with friends and family. I love going outside, hiking or sitting with friends at the river.
Sustainability and climate change are topics which are very important to me.
I started to learn Spanish some years ago- preparing for the traveling trough south america and being able to get to know even more people :) Finally I am doing it!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I already had so many awesome experiences with CS and got to know super cool people. I'd love to give back what people gave to me and meet more awesome people :)
CS is a great way to learn about the culture and people in the city I am right now. Exchanging stories and getting to know other views about the world and life is very inspiring and amazing! Moreover, it is nice meeting people from other countries and cities in my own home, showing the city and share how I am living with them.

Music, Movies, and Books

I like listening to AnnenMayKantereit, The Wombats, Von wegen Lisbeth, Some Sprouts, Giant Rooks, The All-American Rejects, Coldplay, Fall out boy, The Fray, Green Day, Kraftklub, Ludovico Einaudi, Of monsters and men, OneRepublic, Owl city and more.
I like watching serials on Netflix, watching different kind of movies as well as reading. The big five for life from John Strelecky is one reason I am really travelling to south america :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

- Spending one year in South Africa, supervising a childrens program and experience the wonderful people and culture there
- Paragliding in Cape Town and seeing this beautiful city from up the sky
- Doing an exchange in Toronto, getting to know a lot of awesome people and just enjoying life
- Traveling in central america and enjoying the hospitality of the guatemalian

Teach, Learn, Share

I like cooking and baking a lot and would always share a meal and a good talk. We can also play some music together since I play the guitar a bit and enjoy singing. Of course I can also teach you some german :)

What I Can Share with Hosts

Having a nice time, cook together and have a good talk :)
I am a straightforward, clean and respectful person and try to be as easy as possible.
I am looking forward spending time together and to getting to know each other. On the other hand, as a host, I don't expect you to spend your whole time with me and have no problem spending time alone.
