About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Discovering the secrets of life.

ABOUT ME

Hmm, how to start? I'm pretty curious about life and getting to know its beautiful sides - all of them :) Thus I love travelling because you'll never stop making new experiences and seeing different sides of the world. That's why I chose tourism as my occupation because it makes me happy to enable people to make their holiday one of the greatest experiences in their life :) Besides that, I love laughing... I think a day without a smile and good laugh is a lost one :) I love adventures and spontaneous situations. I spend a lot of time with my friends and family. They appreciate my sense of humor, my reliability and my sympathetic ear I have for them. I actually was voted in my grade as best head shrinker, so I am happy to help people out of problems:) Hmmm, as to the rest about me, find it out yourself :)

I already spent a year in the US, working as an Au Pair which was a big experience and enrichment. I spent another 15 months in New Zealand, a year in Australia and backpacked 4 months through South East Asia. I think living in a different country for a certain time is the best you can do to enrich your life with unforgettable moments and I can't wait to meet them:)

PHILOSOPHY

Dreams are not something to wait for, there are something to work for!

Just because something is difficult doesn't mean you shouldn't try. It means you should just try harder!

Live each day as if it was your last one

Life is like a book and those who do not travel only read a page.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I attended the weekly Couchsurfing drinks in Auckland & Sydney so far and met many nice people. We organised trips together and became like an international family.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I just surfed in Hong Kong & Australia a couple of times and it was great! I love meeting new people & to be honest: it is such a great help to know someone local who can help you with questions and recommendations! I hosted people I hardly knew and stayed at others who I didn't know in advance (both not via Couchsurfing tho) and it was great. We became good friends and know once we are in each others countries again, we'll meet up.

Interests

Too many, especially foreign countries and cultures as well as geography ... that's why I love travelling. I also love nature and thus like to be outdoor. Moreover, being with friends and family is the best in life and I like to enjoy it with them in many different ways like hanging out, going clubing, playing games, watching movies or just have a good talk :) Staying fit is also quite important for me, so I like to bike, hike, swim, jogg, etc.... or just go for a walk :)A good book is also a good thing in life ;) I am also interested in alternative medicine and already made some interesting experiences.

Music, Movies & Books

Music: 70s,80s,90s and everything till today's music, rock, house, electro, poptrance

Books: the Harry Potter and Twilight series, Memoirs of a geisha, My way through heaven and hell

Movies: Thrillers, dramas, horrors but also comedies :)

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Hmm, so many different moments and situations, it would take me ages to mention them all, but here some examples: - spending one night in Doubftul Sound in Fiordland, NZ: we were the only boat in the whole sound, that was amazing! 100% pure tranquility:) - swimming with wild dolphins - these creatures are so beautiful - Skydive over Queenstown is awesome! :) - first morning on Oahu(Hawaii): Being almost alone at Waikiki Beach early in the morning and stepping into the warm Pacific Ocean... that is an indescribable feeling and I can recommend it to everyone who's in Waikiki:) - waiting for and seeing the sunrise at the Grand Canyon

But besides many beautiful travel experiences, the best thing in life is receiving love from others and especially from children.
