About Me

25 year old food & travel & animal lover from berlin, germany (also kinda swabian because i studied in tuebingen for four years living the #ländle life to the max)

i know this sounds super cliché but i love traveling and meeting new people from different backgrounds with different life stories to share.

also, i'm a lot cooler on the internet than in real life but i'm trying really hard

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

i love couchsurfing because staying with locals is super fun and makes traveling and experiencing new places much more interesting. it also made me grow as a person a lot bc i used to be a socially awkward and shy person and now i'm only socially awkward. nice!
CS basically saved my life several times because i suck at organizing. one time i bought a plane ticket to japan for the next day because #neverstopexploring #travelblogger etc and i always make good and well-wrought decisions. but i somehow survived thanks to some awesome hosts and other great people! i definitely had the time of my life and met many cool people through couchsurfing (even though my reference number doesn't make it seem that way lol, i just kinda forgot to keep it updated).
i'll forever be thankful for that!

Interests

i constantly want to broaden my horizons regarding healthy living, animal rights, social issues, psychology, the fine arts and foreign languages and cultures.

i also love pikachu.

Music, Movies, and Books

this is just an extract because i'm honestly the worst person you'll ever meet when it comes to making decisions. (i swear to god, be warned)

movies: studio ghibli (hayao miyazaki)!!!, wes anderson movies, the before sunrise trilogy, pride & prejudice (because mr darcy), whatever works (woody allen)

music: muse (fangirl for 9 years), radiohead, nujabes, joe hisaishi, justice, classical music (mostly beethoven, liszt, chopin, shostakovitch, rachmaninoff and the like; i know that doesn't *really* make me a classical music enthusiast), nu jazz and 90ies songs because i love trash music omg it's the best

books: the elegance of the hedgehog, erich fromm, michael ende (the never ending story and momo!!), harry potter, etty hillesum
i also have a love-hate relationship with haruki murakami

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

my aforementioned spontaneous trip to japan. it's a good story to tell.
apart from that i'm boring.

Teach, Learn, Share

i like to share experiences and food

i know the pokérap by heart ISN'T THAT GREAT (only in german tho sorry)

What I Can Share with Hosts

nothing because i'm poor
but i think i'm kind of a decent person because i always try to make ppl feel good (or at least to not be annoying)
plus, i'm a good listener!! (talking about other people's problems is a lot more interesting than focusing on your own lol)
