Join Couchsurfing to see Katrina’s full profile. It’s free!
I'm Katrina, a 26 years old phd student living in the beautiful city of Düsseldorf in Germany. As probably everyone here travelling is my passion, even more when I get the chance to meet new people from all over the world. So "Hi world, I'm looking forward to meeting you" :-)
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Because it seems there is no better way to combine getting to know new places and getting to know new people!
Well job-wise I am interested in cross-cultural research on romantic relationships and how to explain what makes people happy or unhappy with their partners. Outside of the office I like to think of people more as individuals and not just as numbers, so I love to travel, meet new people, have long conversations, watch movies, see concerts...
...and combine all of the above with nice food and a glass of wine or beer (depending on the conversation topic ;)
Music, Movies, and Books
That largely depends on the mood I am in, but generally I am up to give anything a try and forming an opinion afterwards. If I have to pick my favourites though it would be Zaz/Arctic Monkeys (as for music), Garden State/Into the Wild (as for movies) and an uncountable number of books.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Worked for an NGO in Ecuador, met the most amazing people, travelled to the Galapagos Islands, swam with sea lions, hammer-head sharks, penguins and iguanas...
What I Can Share with Hosts
A bottle of wine, some (more or less) serious cooking skills, a good laugh, travelling stories from around the world and hopefully a great time
