About Me

First of all: I prefer female surfers or gay men...(Sorry for the straight guys)


To live every moment...


I'm a 32 year old women who is into art an graphic design and loves good conversations about god and the world-well maybe more the world than god :). I love to talk about serious things but humor is also a very important thing to me. I like irony and black humor. The books of Nick Hornby are a good example how I see and love life.
I play theater with a lot of passion and love yoga! I also draw and silkscreen. I love to meet new people from all over the world to get new views of things and see the world from a different angle.

Friends and honesty mean a lot to me!

Only one who changes, remains true to itself!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I live alone in a 3-room flat. You can sleep on the couch or on a mattress. I'm a non smoker and I don't have a balcony, so if you're a smoker you have to get out of the house.
2 People can sleep at my flat. If I host you then it is important to me that we can spend some time together, have a dinner with some wine and I perhaps can show you the city. Weekendvisits are therefore the best.

I had another profile here with someone together but started a new one for myself. I couchsurfed in japan with a lovely woman called Jean, went out with a couple of spanish hosts in Madrid and hosted people from Poland and the USA. So I do have some experience, all of them I really enjoyed!


I love books especially autobigraphic comics for example about FREUD or MARX or big world literature such as FAUST in comic form but I also like to read "normal" books:)

I'm into yoga and meditation but not in a freaky, esoteric way. As I mentioned before I'm a passionate theater player!
And what I really, really love is to float in the river Aare in the summer. The Aare floats through the wonderful city of Bern. I also go for hikes in the nearby Bernese Oberland every now and then to fill up my energy.
And last but not least I like to go out and have a good night out in the old city of Bern.

Music, Movies, and Books

Gott höchstselbst (Comic)
Bridget Jones (Hey , I'm a woman in her 30ies:)
A long way down- by Nick Hornby

Music- I really love a big range of Music from Pop-Blues stuff from Tenessee to BritPop to local swiss german bands

Movies really change but I'm a big fan of BBC Series like Sherlock, the Hour or the danish polit Serie "Borgen"

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I did the Transsiberian Railway in winter. I crossed Russia, Mongolia, China and Japan in about 4 Months that was really amazing!
I travelled Europe by rail in the years 2002-2011 and I hiked through Germany, Denmark, the Färöer Islands, Iceland and went on hiking tour in Greenland.
But breathtaking is always the view of Eiger, Mönch und Jungfrau when I do a hike in the Bernese Oberland

Teach, Learn, Share

Well I like to go with you for a swim, a sport I really love. I can show you how to do a silkscreen print and perhaps we can do a print as a souvenir of our time together.
And I'm open for a lot of things which you can show me!
