About Me

Hello there!


My name is Nathalie, from Frankfurt, Germany moving to Cape Town, South Africa for my Human Rights Masters. If I honestly had to name one passion, it would be travelling off the beaten tracks. My favourite country so far is India!

I have just finished my PhD in Human Rights Law and Minority Protection and moved to Cape Town in February 2021 to continue my studies.


Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I like seeing Couch Surfing as an idea of seeing a country's "true face". I want the full experience when it comes to people, food and everyday life. And the best way to start is always getting to know the locals, listening to their stories and experiencing their culture through their eyes. And honestly: Being hosted and hosting has been one of the best experiences!
