About Me


travel as much as possible


i'm an optimistic person who loves to learn new things and is curious to meet people from different backgrounds and countries and to listen to their stories. i'm a rather calm/introverted (INFJ) person but i'm not shy. i'm enthusiastic about new ideas/challenges and i love to be inspired by everyone/everything.


"sometimes there's so much beauty in the world i feel like i can't take it, like my heart's going to cave in" this is a quote from "american beauty". i couldn't agree more. life's beautiful, you can find beauty almost everywhere and sometimes it's just too overwhelming.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


i absolutely love the couchsurfing spirit. i've met wonderful people through couchsurfing, it was a great experience and i can't wait to surf more couches (and start hosting) and meet different people. :) couchsurfing inspires and broadens your horizon and it's just the best way to travel. i wouldn't want to miss it for the world.


i love music, films, reading, writing, yoga, learning new languages, photography, traveling (of course), playing guitar, going out with friends, art, design, philosophy, laughing, skateboarding

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

_the amazingly friendly people in Japan - it just blew me away.
_I travelled alone through Japan's main island Honshu and it was the best experience of my life
_I also travelled via train through the USA - starting from Chicago via Iowa, Denver, Salt Lake City, Nevada to San Francisco and then from San Francisco to Seattle. It was awesome and it changed my perspective on life

Teach, Learn, Share

generally i'm interested in almost everything, so just ask and i may help you. :)
