About Me

Einmal dem Lauf der Welt zu folgen, erweitert den Horizont fürs ganze Leben!

Anyone interested in Backpacking in Centeal America? Especially Costa Rica and Panama?


My name is Janine, I am 24 years old and German! I fell in love with my cute puppy Bella, my sister is like a best friend to me and my boyfriend means the whole world to me.

I have always had a great interest in the Tourism and Events industry, as after passing my German A-levels, I spent a gap year in New Zealand, experiencing its unique culture firsthand. This then prompted me, in October 2013 to apply to study Tourism and Event Management at the Euro Business College in Hamburg.

Nevertheless during my studies I noticed that this sector won´t satisfy my expectations and therefore I decided to do my postgraduate studies in M.A International Management in Flensburg and next to it I do my double degree in Sønderborg (Denmark) in Msc. Business, Language and Culture. I focused on Small Business Management and Entrepreneurship to begin with my big business in 2018 :D

During my travels and having lived in 5 foreign countries, I find it very rewarding to learn new languages, and getting to know the diverse cultures of foreign countries. I travel as much as I can and can´t stand to stay more than 3 months at the same place! (:

Traveling is an addiction, you cant get rid off! As all of you probably know!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Travelling is unique. Learning a country and its culture firsthand is the most important aspect for me. Within the last 10 years I travelled the whole world. Experienced good times through couch surfing and wolfing. Met a great bunch of new people, learned about their daily life and just enjoyed every day. Through CS I met the most incredible persons and I am so happy to call them my friends.
