About Me


Never done before? Consider it solved.

Open minded, optimistic 28 year old female, that enjoyes being outside and explore the nature ... Sea, mountain ... And whatever sports are related!

Initially from the German part of Switzerland, I am comfortable to speak in German, French and English - some basic skills in Italian.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

What an amazing bunch of people! Based on some very positive experience in attending events in Paris, I continued exploring the network in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, and soon started to host the local weekly events here too. I enjoyed hosting the meetings, in order to enable people to connect and exchange with each other and for me, to getting to know so many tolerant, open-minded, interested people. Regularly I learned something from them that impressed me, astonished me ... and this is what I love!


A lot. Geopolitics & being active, from cooking - hiking. Sea, mountain ... And whatever sports are related! Challenges. Demanding dialogues...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

... deciding that I can be whatever I want

Teach, Learn, Share

Key streghth. I really believe that sharing helps us (and others), to become friendlier, more peaceful, understanding, growing ... people, so I constantly look for opportunities to lear and share. When it comes to teaching, I let the people tell me if they want to learn sth from me, if they consider me a worthy teacher ....

What I Can Share with Hosts

I'll share whatever I have, and whatever they want. Someone may enjoy conversations in French, German or English to practice languages, another person may want to learn how to prepare Swiss Röschti, or would like to know about countries I've visited. Just let me know your interests!
