About Me


Enjoying life!


I don´t really now how to introduce myself..I am a cheerful person, respectful of people and nature who is passionate for traveling since my childhood. Even though my family never traveled (or maybe because of that), I have always been highly attracted by it, and as a child became a real passionate for geography, collecting travel books, travel agency magazines, maps, etc.

Now that I am able to move on my own I don´t want to loose time anymore and I travel as much as I can! I studied international relations and geopolitics and am now lucky to get to live abroad for my work. I lived in Austria, the Netherlands, Kosovo and am now back in the Netherlands. I am always in the mood to met new people, to go on nature trips and to experiment new things.


happiness is to be found in the small things, you don´t need much, just to open your eyes.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


As my situation changes a lot and generally quite quickly, I can't always host. I am nevertheless always open to meet couchsurfers visiting the place I am at the moment and to show them around. I also like getting in touch with the CS community living in those places.


I only have few surfing experience through the CS website but I did a lot of couch surfing during my different trips (especially in Transylvania), staying at friends of friends, family of friends, etc. Though CS, I stayed in Zagreb, New York, Annapolis & Baltimore and The Hague and met really cool people every time! I really enjoy traveling this way, and recommend it to everybody (even brought me some problem when I was teaching in high schools!). I always try to be helpful in the place I´m staying, do not take much space and actually appear to be a well appreciated cook!!


In addition to travelling, I love to read and always carry a book around. I aslo love cooking (it is my main free time activity), hiking and I am curretly trying to learn to play the guitar and to speak Russian.
