About Me


keep experiencing and dancing in the moonlight...


I was addicted to travelling already in the young age... Been floating around the world about four years now, studying there, working here and having a holiday in between those times. I'm open-minded and friendly but sometimes people think I'm shy before they really get to know me..


I try not to get stuck, do every day something that I want to do but what might first scare me. For example drive a motorbike in the left side of the road in Indonesia or eat a fried spider... I also try not to stress too much although sometimes it's overwhelming to try to decide to which destination should I buy the next flight ticket. ;)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


One of the best parts about traveling is meeting new people. If I will stay somewhere long enough and have a couch I will definitely want to host other surfers too.


Been a CS member for a while but started really to take part when I came to China... It's awesome!


Travelling (duh!), photography, arts, scuba diving, dancing (african dance, belly dance, salsa, balinese dance...).

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Diving in Raja Ampat, Irian Jaya, is something amazing! Another favorite diving spot is Pulau Weh in Aceh. All the colors, creatures and underwater formations are truly mind-blowing!

Teach, Learn, Share

Lately I've been teaching many people some basics of snowboarding... Not that I'm a pro myself but I can give you a few tips. :)
