About Me


life has a funny way turning around every once in a while. i try to keep up with it.


If you enjoy a nice quiet evening, tea and a nice conversation, we already have somethings in common.
My favorite activities are sleeping, yoga, swimming, ballet, driving, having nice company :)
I really love cats. (but I respect all living creatures and I know love can be shared regardless of shape or race)
I don't eat meat. I am pro-life and I can not think of any reason to be used as an excuse to kill any living thing. I do not try to convince people into not eating meat, but if they start teasing with mean meat-related jokes, I have some good arguments about my choice.
I respect and trust the ones who also respect and are trust worthy. I am sensitive and emphatize with almost all living things around me. Some people say that's wrong but I can not find a way to be otherwise. I am happy with the path I choose.

I am not pretentious. My dream is not to be rich of money but rich of love and wonderful experiences! People are more valuable than any amount of money. Life itself is more precious than any material object.


I feel like there's so much inside us, and all the material things create a barrier between humans. Even if we have the impression we communicate better nowadays with all those handsfreecellphones, wireless internet, online gaming, I partialy disagree.

I also think that the more we communicate the more we grow, on the inside. We need love, and sharing smiles at least once a day. Do you want to share knowledge, friendship or just smiles? Eitherway, challenge accepted.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


hosting, surfing, teaching, learning, as much as I can.


only povitive ones till now :)


life, friendship, arts (fine arts, yoga, ballet), antropology, nature, cats, music - it's hard to make a list because it would be huge.

I would love to speak better german, english, french.
There is a thing I have for foods. I love to cook but never for myself alone, because sharing is love. We have to give back to the world everything we recieve. Selfishness is not something I could enjoy.
