About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Living & Loving.

ABOUT ME

I think this is what describes me best:

Die Nerven von Spinnweb, d'Herzen von Wachs und d'Köpferln von Eisen, das ist ja der Grundriss der weiblichen Struktur. (Johann Nestroy)

It says something like: Easy to provoke, very feeling and loving, but also stubborn. Well, it's better in German...

PHILOSOPHY

I think it's important to be curious and open. It's not about being open to everything that comes across without being critical. But being interested in the first place is what's really important. And to keep on learning all your life.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I've decided that this is my absolutely preferred way to travel after a lot of positive experiences. I'm also trying to host in Vienna, when there's time.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I did an Interrail tour through Europe. It is just a great way to travel. You learn more about others - about the cultural differences but also in general about people. Travelling always educates in a certain way. I also hosted some people in Vienna, which was nice too.

Interests

I'm interested in almost every kind of music as long as it is touching. I love going to concerts and dancing. I love food, cooking, eating, trying new stuff, ... Politics, geography and languages are other things that are important to me. I love travelling and dreaming about it. I'd really like to visit every corner of France & India, because they are both so multifaceted. These are real aims in my life, aside from being a mother.

Music, Movies & Books

Music: Rammstein, Damien Rice, Deadmau5 As you can see I'm open to lots of genres. I also listen to trance, rock, house, instrumental, drum & bass, charts, ballads, electro, indian music, ...

Books: Anna Gavalda is my favourite author. But I also like fact books & magazines.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Raise your weapon (song from Deadmau5) with closed eyes on the shoulders of someone, and a fantastic lasershow starting when the dubstep part began (Urban Art Forms Festival 2011).

Cabo girao (Madeira).

Some touching, cheesy welcome and farewell scenes at train stations and airports. I love 'em!

Rammstein concerts.

The most beautiful snow landscape one could imagine on the amazing B198 from St.Anton to Lech Zürs am Arlberg.

The brilliant movie Samsara by Ron Fricke.

Loads of amazing, emotionally charged moments in love relationships.

Bungee jump.

A car ride in France, after my very-first day at the Atlantic Ocean, with the ridiculous song Welcome to St.Tropez on, my little au pair daugther on my lap freaking out and dancing, my au pair son too, their older stepsister rapping, the parents singing in the typical incomprehensible french English as loud as they could ... everybody was so damn happy. :)

Visuals, laser and light show accompanying an Above & Beyond concert at Amnesia on Ibiza.

Teach, Learn, Share

I could teach cooking some Austrian dishes, too bad for the vegetarians. :P And of course German.
