I am a little chaotic and clumsy and rather sponatneous as organzied. Still I am usually very concerned about other peoples' feelings and well-being and put all efforts into them feeling good. I would say I a am friendly, hospitable, helpful, warm-hearted, considerate and empathetic person. I love getting to know different cultures and languages (or at least their sound). I am especially interested in spanish, portuguese, and the other romance languages because I studied spanish. I am keen on leraning about other peoples` cultures, religions and habits.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I had my first couchsurfing experiences in Sarajevo and Belgrade. It totally exceeded all expectation.It was amazing, the hosts incredibly nice persons!
I like to get to know better any culture. At the moment I am especially connected to the turkish one. I've had a lot of tandem (language) partners, mainly in order to improve my spanish skills.
Of course i like travelling.
And I looove dogs;)

Teach, Learn, Share
Those who live in countries which don't suffer from any major problems like hunger/poverty/ war/ surpression/ lack of electricity/drinking water etc. can afford to overthink their lifestyle..so, I find these current movement interesting:
avoid plastic/ or producing any garbage
and minimalism as a contrast to our consumption-orientated world
(in German, though):
I do not live this way. Not yet. But I am seriously considering overthinking a lot my way of lifestyle.
I am very much aware though, that travelling (esp. by plane) contributes a lot to pollution and see that it is a little contradictory to safe and destroy the world at the same time..
What I Can Share with Hosts
I guess that would be travel stories and the way I think about certain things. Having grown up in Germany and lived timel in very different countries.
We can do yoga together:D
