About Me


I want to learn, not only in theory (years of university are over!!) but also living and working.
I want to improve - without being bent.


My friends decribe me as an interested, friendly nature, tolerant and spontaneous. Always curious of new things and experiences. I like to talk but I am also listening ;-)


Happiness is a warm gun (bang bang shoot shoot).

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I host, I visit, I meet with different people to have some coffee together or to be sporty / active - all over the World!

Since I am working during the week, I only host on weekends!


Once - still young and naïve - I was in Rome with a friend staying at a campside not clothest to the city. But we had to go out and enjoy the beautiful night (in the City centre) anyway, thereby risking to lose the last train back.

The very same night we met an american-italian who passed his summer holidays in Rome taking care of his ill grandmother.
"Yes, of course...", one might think. "Good trick."
Since it was late he offered us his bed and we were already very tired of the hard soil of the camping side. So we agreed, he would sleep on the floor, "yes, of course..."

Arriving at the flat, surprisingly everything would happen as he had promised and after having him chased from his own bed and relaxing and talking, he furthermore gave us 2 books the next morning.

It was a wonderful experience and a very nice guy!

There are still young people that care about their grandparents ;-)


Dance, sports, nature, friends, music, theatre, literature, ... are things that make me really happy. I always find something entertaining to do!

I enjoy a good glass of wine while chatting...
