About Me

I've just left my job after 4 years of working intensely, moving countries, and caring for my dad. During this time I burned myself out a few times. Now it's time to travel for a while, reset and rejuvenate. I want to follow what I find intriguing, and let my inner child get excited with the new!

I'm traveling to Miami, Guatemala, Costa Rica and Phoenix during March. I'm into exploring cities, mountains, I love the beach, and deep conversations. I'm a sucker for swing dancing and physical challenges, especially calisthenics!

What I Can Share with Hosts

I'm super flexible depending on the host's availability. I can make myself busy the whole day or spend time together to get the real local experience :)
I'm a good listener and you might find yourself reflecting through our conversations. I can also get super excited and I've been told it's contagious!
