About Me


A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. - Lao Tzu


Honestly I´m a person who has to bring out of her shell at first ;) I´m a little bit unsure when I meet new people but after a certain time when I´m feeling comfortable I guess I'm a very warm person who loves laughing and having fun.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Well, after I had lived and studied in Canada for 7 months in 2010/2011, I only made positive experiences with Couchsurfing! :-) I didn't crash on someones couch yet but met awesome people for a drink/coffee or as travel buddies!
I guess Couchsurfing is the easiest way to get to know new people: open minded and welcoming folks


Photography, Travelling, Hiking, Climbing (just started) and rarely Slacklining. Having long, deep and funny conversations with good friends and, even better, at the same time good food.
I'm interested in the world in general and always impressed and inspirated by people's experiences and stories :-)

Music, Movies, and Books

Generally I am open for every kind of music. But I really really enjoy Mumford and Sons! Well, and Jack Johnson, Incubus, Kings of Leon...this kind of stuff.
I like watching movies, but I'm really a non-expert. So if someone wants to start having deeper conversation or anything: I am right out of it :/ haha. So you are really welcome to "teach" me in movie knowledge if you like :D

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done


There were some special moments which I won't both neither forget nor experience again like I did:

1) The three day adventure tour with a van along the Cabot Trail on Cape Breton Island (Nova Scotia, Canada). Just having these other open-minded and adventurous guys around and the gorgeous wildlife beauty.

2) 52 hours non-stop by train from Chicago to San Francisco through the beautiful landscape of 7 US states. I highly recommend this kind of traveling if you want to see more of the US and it's definitely not touristy :-)

Teach, Learn, Share

Hm, I think I can't "teach" you in life ;-) but maybe tell you about my experiences and the time I lived in Canada. I like to share those experiences and help others as good as I can :-) Also if people got questions about Germany, simply ask :-)
