trying to make life as beautiful and happy as possible
Hmm...about me....I think I'm quite uncomplicated as long as you don't know me very well. ^_^ I like to have fun and laugh a lot and I like doing and saying weird things. I also love to talk with all kinds of people about many topics - serious topics, funny topics, strange topics and I also like discussions (as long as people aren't close-minded - that's a bit exhausting sometimes...) I always try to be a good listener because I always want to help people with their problems.
The most important things in my life are my family, my love, closest friends, music and books and especially my Husky-She-Dog Ronja.
Things I hate most are prejudices, war, stupidity and all kinds of ideology.
I don't like any kind of ideology.
The most important thing is to listen to people before adjudging them.
Not tolerance - important is respect!!
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I want to meet new people, to learn about their languages, their cultures, their experiences, their lifes! All people know different things about the world and got different points of view in all topics and in my opinion you can only improve when listening to everyone. Every talk helps you to understand the world a little bit better and getting away from being closed-minded.
I'm not a fan of using CS as free hotels. If I host people I want to show them around, to let them be part of my life and take them at least once for a coffee or a drink. That's also a reason why I don't host so often. Since I'm quite busy with my studies it's sometimes difficult for me to find time to show people around, then I prefer to refuse a couch than just let people stay over night without getting to know them.
My family and friends, my dog, animals in general, medicines, many kinds of music, books!, some mangas and anime, science, to a certain degree politics and history, travelling, sports;

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Huuuge snow crystalls sparkling and twinkling under the full moon at a clearing when toboganning at Watzmann/Berchtesgaden at night in winter 2006 having
-20°C and a few metres of snow. It was amazing! I've never seen such a beautiful thing before...
Teach, Learn, Share
I can tell you quite a lot about animals - animal behaving (I'm doing private dog-training, so I can also help you to get rid of problems with your dogs), animal feeding, animal breeding, animal anatomy/histology/physiology...well, that's my studies, haha.
Since I had Latin for 7 years at school I can also help people with that. I even kinda like it ^_^
Oh and cooking. I can prepare some vegetarian Austrian food like Käsespätzle, Kaiserschmarrn, Sachertorte and more. And also I can teach you how to bake delicious wheat bread and real Pretzels and am most happy to share these skills with anyone :)
