CURRENT COUCH STATUS
We used to have that lovely place with a guest bedroom, but now we moved and all we have is a couch in our living room. Not home often, and don't host that much any more....
See more of this fabulous world!
Hey, so what is to know about me?! I like, no wait, I looooove travelling and seeing different cultures! No wonder, with my weird background I must love it ;-) I was born and raised in Switzerland and my dad is Swiss and my mum is British. Though the rest of my family is culturally totally mixed as well, which is fun!
After my education in Switzerland I left to go abroad and lived 4 years in Ireland, where I started with my studies and worked in several jobs. After that I lived with friends in China and where I did my best to teach English to Chinese teenagers and travelled China for totally 6 months. My plan after that was to travel "the long way around the world" back home to Switzerland. But as always, plans do not always follow through as you have planned them to.... I got stuck with a job, a boyfriend and a house in Melbourne and will settle here for a while - just until the travel bug comes and bites me again.
I would consider myself as clean, open minded, easy going, creative, optimistic with realistic tendencies, sometimes a little bit shy - but not introverted at all (does that make any sense?). Though that is enough talking for now... if there is any request, just ask! :-)
Ships are safe in harbours. But that is not what ships are built for.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I switched on the PC.... opened a browser.... typed in www.couchsurfing.org.... clicked on "Register" and started to create my profile - Voila! Here I am now, travelling, meeting people and having fun! ;-)
Used to love it while travelling and when the community was super strong. Made so many lovely connections over the years.
- Sport (especially water sport)
- Culture and languages
- foreign Food
- Meeting new people
- Music and concerts (play the guitar very very badly) ;-)
Music, Movies, and Books
I am a huge movie and music buff... Listen to any kind of music, and love films (but am too scared of horror movies) ;-)
I like a good novel, though I prefer to read non-fiction books (like travel guides, book about photography, etc).
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I accidentally saw the Dalai Lama at the Airport in New Deli... I literally bumped into him and his bodyguards. What are the chances - China is trying to find him for years, and on my first visit to India I see him! :-p
Teach, Learn, Share
As sharing is caring, I made up a blog and a facebook site with tips to expensive Melbourne:
I am a certified Swim Teacher - and I'd be happy to help you with swimming if you can not yet do so!
Yes please! Teach me all you've got!
