About Me

CURRENT MISSION

be yourself unless you can be a unicorn.

ABOUT ME

I like change. I enjoy diversity. Furthermore I am a sociable and by the same time independent person. One of the main thinks I love in life are mountains and nature. I'm vegetarian.

Also, I keen about traveling. However, for me it is not easy to make decisions. And during traveling you have to make a lot of decisions. That's why, for me, destiny is most important for me. During travels, I enjoy to be flexible and to be as open minded as possible. I'm always curious about new places. Therefore, I am asking questions like a waterfall, be prepared for that ;-)!

What is important for me? The simplest things in life are valuable for me. That I have a place to sleep, that I have food, that I can communicate, that I have a couple of friends and all the daily routines in our daily life. Also, I want to mention that I am quite childish and somehow haven't managed to grow up.

With these lines I also want to create some space for all the people I met, seen and touched! Some helped me out in emergency cases, some I just met for a drink, some became my sister or brother, with some I stayed for ages, with some for seconds, some gave me food and love!

PHILOSOPHY

life is a circle

life is destiny

the sky is high

Keep on Walking...

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

After a while the cs experience just grows! Now, I have stayed at many various places, hosted guest and got to know good friends over cs. I hosted people who put up their tents on my rooftop, who bicycled all the way from Germany to Hong Kong, people who slaughtered animals with me, people who actually can’t travel but enjoy company, people who work at a higher level for cs, people I completely don’t understand and persons who I just met for a cay, picnic, dinner or beach party.

With the time I also got to know a diversity of households, gardens and rooftops. It is great to get to know so many places where people sleep, eat, communicate, work or better to say simply life! For me it doesn't matter what kind of place it is or where it is located. I don’t care if I have to sleep on the floor, sleep together with my host, sleep on in my own bed or get relocated to other friends and then maybe again get passed to different friends again – so that I actually don’t know where I am. Most important for me is to meet the people, speak, listen and hear them!

I just list various couchsurfing experiences and even more important what happened beyond couchsurfing because live is not only about this social platform.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I think everything in our life can be an amazing thing.
Many people started asking me: "What is the most amazing thing you have done? What is the best place or country you have visited?" After these questions I am always confused because why should be there only one good place? For me all places have good things and bad thing. Furthermore, for me felling a place also depends on my mood - sometimes I am fine and will talk to a lot of people and go to many different place. But sometimes my mood is not the best so then I also experience the place in a different way. What I want to say is that everyplace is amazing - it mostly just depends on what you are making out of it!

Just rethink and be self-reflective!

Teach, Learn, Share

be value-free every time of u're life

Simple things will create the biggest happiness in your heart - just try it.
