About Me


"I haven't been everywhere, but it's on my list" so i m on my journey to everywhere :)


I m a funny, easy going and open minded girl from germany, always happy to meet new people. I love life, go with flow and enjoy the moment.
Buddha said: "the trouble is, you think you have time!" that's true, we actually don't have time, we only live once and should enjoy to the max. The present moment is the only one we have.
I love to explore, the unknown, off the beaten paths, different cultures, different food. I m so addicted to see more of this world, I can't imagine a "normal" 9-5 life anymore. I wanna be creative, I wanna change the world, i wanna make people happy and smiling and I m full of energy.


Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift

I believe in energy, positive thoughts attract positive things and negative energy and thinking attracts negative things. That's the simple way of life!
And i m aware of annicca, impermanence. Everything changes. The only constant is change! That's my philosophy and that's why I try to live in the present moment with maximum happiness :)

I m a minimalist (minimal stuff, maximal happiness) it's true! The less u own the more u appreciate small things and the more happy u are. I learned a lot from homeless people and streetkids in india and in little remote villages with no luxury. These are the happiest people :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I love the idea of CS... I met a lot of people and surfed their couches while travelling...
I think its the best way to fully get to know a country. And I m so happy for all these amazing friends I met thanks to Cs.


enjoy life while traveling, cooking, meeting people...
reading, music, photography...
My new hobby is finding and documenting streetart in every country I go. I believe u get to know a country better looking at walls, they always tell you something. About a country s problems, society, culture... It's pretty interesting. And u get to know soooo many nice people :)
