About Me


it's all about motion.
things change and so do we ... There's a lot to discover :)

I would like to feel the earth-breath and have some unique and wonderful experiences in the world


Hey there! I'm Maria, a 25 year old student from germany... Always looking for some new and interesting impulses, that make life colourful. The world is full of exciting moments, which I would like to get to know and to share with friendly people.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


right back from the opposite part of the world... I never want to lose the feeling of being on the road... and to be able to carry all I need on my back... starting a day without knowing, where the wind is leading me, but surely knowing I'll find on my way, what I need to find, cause I'm looking for something... although I might not be aware of this fact.

Spontaneously catching up or just having a coffee together...
always up to it :)


Every single experience has been unique...
wonderful moments, shared hours... warm-hearted people, a few nice cooking sessions, dancing, singing :)


Culture, travelling, nature, literature, photography, art, selfmade stuff, music, festivals, ...

Music, Movies, and Books

Reading is always a good decision :))
There's a huge variety of books, i love... and the number is rising: Children's Books, the classics, poems. . .
"Music gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and charm and gaiety to life and to everything." (Plato) ... I love to visit festivals... the best music you can have is the one, which is arising live and therefore a product of the moment.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

When we came back to our hostel from a midnight-walking-tour through the city of Prague... all tired - we decided not to climb the 7 floors upstairs by feet... For the first time during our Prague-trip we chose the old elevator... Together with some foreign guys. The elevator started to move but decided to stop spontaneously between two floors without any possibility for us to leave. Our first idea, the alarm-button: didn't work... It seemed, that we had to stay the whole night and even longer in a small, old elevator with less space for all of us... Some of us had the idea to sing... We started with "Help" (the ultimative beatles-song for this particular situation)... Followed by other songs. It didn't need much time until we were recognized... Instead of an annoying noise by the alarm-button. Later on, we had a funny night with lots of music and new contacts.
