About Me

I love travelling and I try to get to know local people and culture while I'm around. I lived in France as an AuPair, in Istanbul as an ERASMUS student and in Azerbaijan as an EVS volunteer and now found my dream job at an NGO in Germany.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Seeing sights is only a small part of travelling for me. I rather prefer walking around local markets or bazaars and see the real life. And I usually have thousands of questions about the country and local customs. So meeting locals through couchsurfing and them show me their city is something I much rather do than going into a museum.


Basically everything. Local food, customs, traditions.

Music, Movies, and Books

As I studied literature, I read quiet a lot. But I spent most of my life reading western literature. Almost ten years ago, I started reading books outside the usual canon and I'm always eager to discover new books and famous authors from a country.
