About Me


travel the world and enjoy this once in a lifetime experience


G´day, Bonjour, Buenos Dias, or "Guten Tag" everyone,
my name is Miri, I am 27 years young;-) and I am from Germany.
I am a journalist and worked really hard the last years until I got home one day, had a beer and said to my self "thats it, i am so out if here". No sooner said than done, I quit my job and decided to go back to basic and take some time off. And how could u use ur time better then travelling? Right, u just can´t! So I sold all my stuff, took my backpack and started the journey of my life. That was 6 month ago and I still have a long way to go, but I just love it. I enjoy every single minute of this trip - beautiful nature, great citys, wonderful people from all over the world, weird people from all over the world ;-) true locals who tell u more about the country they call home - all this makes it really special and unforgetable! And i have a lot of good storys to tell :-) So if u look for someone, who can take good care of ur couch, is kind of funny, open-minded, reliable, u don´t have to play mummy for, and is willing to give u hand, then I am the right couch surfer for u :-D
So have an awesome day and take care
All the best Miri


Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you did not do than by the things you did do. So, throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
(Mark Twain)

thats how i want to live my life
