About Me

ABOUT ME

I love nature, animals, adventure sports - and my son. I'm interested in diffirent cultures and naturally travelling. I like art, local traditional handicrafs and nature cosmetics (excluding animal products). Vegan lifestyle has been my thing now for 20 years.

PHILOSOPHY

The life is an adventure. Action speaks louder than words.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

AT THE MOMENT WE CAN'T HOST DUE TO 2 NEW RESCUE DOGS WHOM NEED TO SETTLE DOWN TO NEW HOME.

I've actually done couchsurfing already much before internet ;) I've been guest in local homes eg in India, Italy, Germany and Russia. Some of these hosts I just met on the streets :) Beeing a host is some kind of pay back. People have given me so much during my trips. I also like a lot to meet locals and stay with them when travelling myself.

Interests

I love nature/adventure sports! Climbing, kayaking, rafting, paragliding.. You name it ;) I could spend endless time in the forest or mountains. Or in the sea. I like to be with horses. I spend much time also in volunteer work. I've "long career" as animal rights activist but I voluteer work also eg. in the local youth house. I have several animals. I've travelled quite much and love it, also doing volunteer work abroad. The most important thing in my life however is my 12 years old son.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

-paragliding course in Spain and flying alone in the sky despite of my high-altitute phopia -galloping in nature with a horse -the jungle of India, wild elephants and tiger -beeing with my amazing son -the Dolomites in Italy -Azores, adventure sporting there in many ways -Himalaya and great,great people of Nepal -the rainforest in Sumatra -seeing whales
