About Me

CURRENT MISSION

¡alegria!

ABOUT ME

I love sleeping... and eating :) And well, in the time inbetween I try and live life to its fullest...

Freedom means a lot to me. For me every person can be free, because freedom is a state of mind. Being free means that you are aware of your own wishes, feelings and needs and that you are strong and corageous enough to fulfill and follow them.

I like it when things change and love to experience new things. I still haven´t found any purpose or destination in life besides sharing joy and losing fears. Listening to other peoples life stories and getting insight into their experiences often inspires me. Respect means a lot to me, because there is no absolute truth and everyone is finally just trying to make the best out of his life.

I love everything that connects me... with myself, with other persons, with nature. Practically things like horsebackriding, dancing, yoga, capoeira and hiking have become my passion.

Most of the time you will find me laughing because I an helplessly optimistic person. And usually I don´t take things too serious as life always changes in just a few seconds.

PHILOSOPHY

We are all lying in the gutter but some of us are looking at the stars. - Oscar Wilde

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I can't host right now, but I try and surf as much as I can when I travel.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I surfed in Kyrgystan, Turkey, Armenia and Iran so far and always had amazing experiences with wonderful people that were so kind and hospitable!

Interests

travelling, horsebackriding, capoeira, hiking, dancing, reading, art, cultures, drawing, spirituality, philosophy, psychology

Did I already mention? I LOVE to eat ;) So I´m very eager to expand my cooking skills.

And I want to lear more languages! My life goal is to speak seven languages fluently, and I'm on my way ;)

Music, Movies & Books

I am fascinated by the power of words and their limits. And I love it when books and movies give me insight in how people lived in certain times and circumstances.

I read many types of books - phantasy, romans, biographys, classics. Best authors: Hermann Hesse, Michael Ende, Franz Kafka, Haruki Murakami, Goethe

In terms of music I listen to almost any stuff. Depends on the day and my mood. Generes from rap to folk to electronic, classical, rock or punk music. Most important is that it moves me!
