About Me

CURRENT MISSION

After my Erasmus year in Spain I am back home now. Staying with the family to save up money for my upcoming trips.

ABOUT ME

Thats the section I fear most, especially in job-interviews. But I would say, I am a pretty sociable person, I enjoy laughing a lot and make people laugh. Its pretty hard to upset me, although I sometimes do upset people with my tendency to forget and lose stuff. I am a spontaneous person and up to whatever, because crazy ideas usually are the best ones.
Sometimes I do enjoy being indoorsy, and watching movies all day, but as I grew up on a farm with plenty of space and animals, so I usually prefer being outside.

PHILOSOPHY

You'll rather regret the things that you didn't do than the ones you did.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have surfed a couple of couches now and just the idea of it still amazes me. I met some great people through cs and had such a blast doing it. I hope to be able to host some people soon as well, but I guess my location makes that a little difficult for now.

Interests

Almost everything. Although, the last time I told this to someone, I got a 20 minutes discurs about styrofoam production. So, I guess I should say everything thats not completly boring. My latest hobby is boxing and I am trying to learn how to play the ukulele.
