About Me


to drink a cup of tea in a cosy english bar, while chating with some nice people


My Friends call me Mara. An optimistic, open-minded and may be a little bit chaotic, but not a namby-pamby young lady. What could turn my ordinary evening into a real event, is a good company and something delicious. Both definitely served with a sense of humour!!
And yeah, I have an appetite for life!

Sometimes I tend to seem serious and consequent, while talking, but people often distract because of my childish face. :D I am talkative, but I hate mobile phones, I like old-style-storytelling, funny and unusual stories and complicated topics. Not to worry, I am not a serial killer.. I am not that much organized :D And I hate get up early, but I don't mind staying awake till the morning (for both party and work).

I used to write a lot and still admire the work of the movie directors, but I thought, I am not talented enough for it (and I still do).. so before torturing the general public with my work, I decided to.. get some life experience, to try new hobbies, to meet new people, to watch good movies, to travel and steal moments and inspiration.. and one day get the courage to follow my dream. (So here am I by Couch Surfing.)
Meanwhile I started studying anthropology in Berlin and I should admit, that I really like it. Although Berlin is not exactly my city.. where is the fucking sun!? I love it and I miss it. I like being outdoor and here it is simply too cold for me! But I always manage to warm myself up with a cup good tea or a spontaneous trip!!


combination of challenges and relaxation

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


At the moment my boyfriend and I are traveling without any expectation (we don´t have that much couch-surfing experience!) We really hope to find some interesting people here, the idea is great.
Our next destination: Barcelona!


Crashing on sofas - yes!

We did Couch Surfing in London and we really liked it!

Music, Movies & Books

mostly rock, but it depends on the mood :)
Mumford & Sons, Jose Gonzales, Angus & Julia Stone, Paolo Nutini, Jack Johnson, City and Colour, Billy Talent, The Cure, Damian Rise, The Cranberries, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Queen, The Beatles, Blondie, Maroon 5, Lana Del Ray, Nneka, Adriano Celentano, Moby, Andy McKee
..jazz, pop, dance..and classical music at 2 a.m.

Tim Burton, Steven Spielberg and Pedro Almodovar have my respect.. comedy, thriller, drama, but I have always had sympathies with low-budget films or amateur projects (in contrast to the commercial Hollywood productions) and the “unpopular” movies, shown on international film festivals.
..and I adore all kind of ethnographic and documentary films!!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Last summer I went to India and Nepal with a good friend of mine and it was our big adventure! We got lost in the Himalayas, met great people, traveled on the roof of a bus, ate things, about whose origin I don't want to know in details (in fact they weren't bad at all).. and meanwhile my friend, Ginka, suffered from the side effect of the malaria prophylaxis and every minute was in a differend mood (from “Look how green everything is, Maria, I want to stay here forever..” to “I want to go home NOW!” :D). So thank you, Ginche, for making it so special!
