About Me

ABOUT ME

"I am living today as someone I had not yet become yesterday
And tonight I will borrow only pieces of who I am today
To carry with me to tomorrow"

Andrea Gibson

Forever seeking the adventure and immoderately desirous for life.
Most happy when something doesn't go according to any pre-made plan. Almost always laughing - but that might cover up some tears sometimes.
Thirsty for any kind of new stories and dreams to fill my head with.

PHILOSOPHY

"It's hard to stay mad, when there's so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I'm seeing it all at once, and it's too much, my heart fills up like a balloon that's about to burst... And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can't feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life."

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I travelled a bit more than I hosted lately.
Hope to change that once I settle somewhere for a little while.
I like to visit events every now and then and I did meet some wonderfull fellow couchsurfer to travel with for some time.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Oh, so many great memories! I was hosted by amazing people, I travelled with some of the most inspiring people I have ever met and I had wonderful guests.

But it doesn't always need to be the superlative - sometimes couchsurfing is at it's best when I can just quietly share a cup of tea with someone and watch a movie.

Interests

▫ to pack my back in the morning and don't know where I'll end up in the evening aka travelling and hitchhiking.

▫ writing. I love to tell stories, research stories and share them with others. 2013 I travelled through Europe and wrote about it one my blog (in German and English) - Have a look at www.frolleineuropa.de if you wanna know more!

▫ settling for nothing less than changing the world :D Seriously, when I grew up I always wanted to be that angry rebel-girl who takes down the system. Pieces of that are still in me but as I grow older I'm not less angry about injustice and all the other crap in the world but I'm not so sure how to fight it anymore. I guess by now I'm happy if I can one day leave the world a better place than it is now. Wanna help me figure out how? :)

Music, Movies & Books

music: I like german and frensh hiphop, you can enthuse me with electronic music, every now and then I steel my sisters mp3 player and dance to old rock music.

I love to read. If I have a good book with me I might hide behind it for quite a while and since I'm everything but not able to multitask I might ignore you completly - sorry in advance :)

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I've been at Gezi-Park in Turkey and got lucky to be there when all the protests happend. I never experienced anything more touching and powerful. Thinking about it still gives me goosebumps...

Teach, Learn, Share

Just recently improved my tarot-skills to repair my travelbudget by telling people's fortune. Surprisingly, it really works. I'm happy to share this knowledge with you in order to learn more stuff about how to make some money while travelling.
