About Me


Help evolving a peaceful world without prejudices


I'm a natural red-head. And VERY proud of that... :D
Well, I am really open minded and love to travel. I like to get to know other cultures and the traditions there.
I think that in our time it is really important to have transnational friendships... - cause I really wouldn't enjoy another world war. Having friends all over the world and knowing their cultures in my opinion prevents that.

SO: Help me with my mission of building up a global network of friendships :)


There are no problems, just challenges!

--> YOU can achieve ANYTHING as long as you WANT to get it!

Don't say that you can't do something before you haven't at least tried it!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I can host and love to be hosted :)


I got hosted once in Iceland and it was just wonderful. I loved my host, she was so welcoming and friendly!


Gosh, do I really have to list all of them here?? :D

I guess it is easier to list them in bullet form ;)

-Sports: Gym, Horseback Riding, Running, Swimming, Scuba diving, Hiking, Dancing (but not really good ;) )

-Music: Love singing and I play the Saxophone & the clarinet - and I started to play the Guitar!

-Going out with friends, dining out etc.



-English - lived in the States for a year, so I am basically interested in all considering the USA :)

-Making necklaces and bracelets

-Animals: My family has 2 dogs (Beagles) and two cats. We also had 2 horses, but we had to sell them. Now I am riding horses of a friend

-Nature: I love being outside in the nature, just walking aroung, hiking, running, walking the dogs... or doing geocaching. Just everything connected with nature fascinates me.

- ... the other interests you'll have to find out yourself! ;)

Music, Movies, and Books

I basically watch all kinds of movies... Which I am not quite interested in are things like StarTrek or StarWars.. Yuck! ;)
But I love Vampire Diaries! :D
And all movies with Ashton Kutcher - he's hot ;)
I also love Marley & Me (always have to cry!) and P.S.: I love you
And of course all Disney movies are epic
I also started watching "Dr Who" and "Downton Abbey"

Currently I love "Of monsters and men"
But I pretty much listen to any kind of music, I am open to everything considering music
Pretty much everything in the charts is acceptable for me ;)

Mostly fantasy books like Eragon, Shiver or Linger (by Meggie Stiefvater)
And - I fell in love with Shades of Grey... But don't tell anyone ;)
Besides that I love the thrillers and crime novels of Yrsa Sirgurdardottir. They are very good!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

2011 I was on a Scuba Diving boat tour with my family and my boyfriend. We were stopping at a reef and suddenly someone of the crew told everyone to get in the small zodiac...
You can never imagine what happened then... They drove us to a dolphin school with about 20 dolphings, including little baby dolphins!!
I'll never forget that in my life... Such an incredible experience.

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach: German and English :)
Maybe a little of playing the saxophone.
And I could teach you some horseback riding ;) If you provide the horse for it :P

Learn: I am open to everything - so teach me :P
I'd especially like learning some of your language, I am really interested in being able to talk foreign languages :)

Share: I would like to share with you all my experiences that I made so far in my life. Especially I like to share my memories about my exchange year in the US and other travels that enriched my life
