About Me


physically in germany right now - mentally all over the world though...


I am uncomplicated and open-minded, always open for new experiences and eager to expand my mind and be inspired by the world. My friends like to tease me because I am quite the chaotic person, but that's why they love me ;)
I love it when I can have a good talk with people and being able to laugh with them... and life's so much better if you don't take things too seriously and if you dare to be a little bit crazy!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


haven't hosted yet, probably because the town I lived in (Eichstätt) is too small to get noticed on the map ;)
also have I surfed only once but eager to surf more!


explore the world and discover its incredible beauty... and being inspired by the people and places I get to know.

my dream is to travel the world backpacking and in a sailboat.
i love the arts, nature, photography, good books and movies, having a coffee with friends,
new things, new places, new people
music, all the time and everywhere (cello, piano)
doing some sports like running, ennis and
dancing. sailing is amazing! i love the mountains.
and soo much more!
I am a little bit nostalgic and in love with old cars, movies, music....
I like the rain in summer.
I love winter. and summer. and fall.
I like the smell of freshly brewed coffee.
I like to dance my ass off to good music :)
I like picking the chocolate out of my muesli (and not wanting to eat the rest of it then...)

Music, Movies, and Books

my favourite music depends very much on my mood, but basically anything into the direction of indie or singer-songwriter... I love music from Latin America. sometimes i also like it classical, or jazzy. here´s a small choice:

the postal service/beirut/alt-j/sigur rós/josé gonzalez/the knife/lou reed/the black keys/the velvet underground/the smiths/café tacvba/chet faker/manu chao/calle 13/eels/mumford&sons/devendra banhart/paradis/radiohead/tom waits/chopin/tschaikowsky

I'm pretty much into old movies like Breakfast at Tiffany's and Casablanca, but I also like a lot of others. couldn't really pick a few favorites out of the many I like ;)

books are my biggest weakness and I just can´t go home from a flea market without buying a few new ones. sadly I can´t read as fast as I can buy them... currently I am reading myself through Mexican and South American literature and poetry.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I had the time of my life traveling Mexico! this country really amazes me.... my stay here has opened my eyes in many ways and has taught me to live more intensely and be aware of the beauty of the moment.
