About Me


Getting to know other cultures, meeting new people and making the world a better place ;)


I would describe myself as reliable, uncomplicated, spontaneous and easy going person. I m very interested in meeting new people from different cultures and learing different languages. Describing myself is hard, though. You just have to see for yourself ;)

If there is something I want to accopmlish, I most of the time do. And if there is something I can to do make someone'S life a bit better I am happy to do so.


Be happy and travel around the world :D

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Whenever I travel somewhere I surf if possible. When I am at home I am happy to host travellers and show them around. :)


I've only had good experiences with CS so far. It's a wonderful idea --> connecting people


I study african studies and anthropology in Vienna. It turned out to be one of my passions.

I love hanging out with my friends, meeting new people and just enjoying life. I have been playing capoeira since 2011 and could not imagine my life without it.

Cycling is one of my everyday activities. I enjoy going on bike trips as well. My first big one was biking from Austria to the Black See. It is a wonderful area and i had many amazing moments during that time. :)

I also love travelling and I believe that you learn so much from different cultures and thereby appreciate what you've got.

Music, Movies, and Books

There are too many good books, movies and music to listen to as to list them here. I consume them in their original language, if possible because otherwise a lot of things that just cant be translated get lost.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

It's astonishing how different people and cultures can be and how everybody is special and unique in his or her own way. And I want to get to know all of them :)

Even though two people might not have any shared language, they still are able to communicate (if both are willing to do so). I once had a very nice conversation with a bosnian man just by making sounds, using our hands and feet and saying the very very few bosnian words that i had learned before.

Teach, Learn, Share

Learn and teach everything you know and in doing so spread happiness and tolerance!
I belief that knowledge leads to tolerance and acceptance. I try to learn as much as possible from people i meet and vice versa teach them whatever i know, if they want to
