About Me


learning Icelandic
finishing my PhD


Interested in all kinds of stuff!
Like to meet new people and listen to their stories!

About me: tolerant, sometimes lost in thoughts, sometimes fatuous or giggly, good in listening to other people's problems, love sleeping and walking- not at the same time ;) , still trying to figure out my own way of life, love any kind of sports


Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it. (Maya Angelou)

Carpe diem.

The mind is like a parachute: it works best when it's opened.

Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift, that's why it is called the present.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


The idea of 'couchsurfing' is awesome! I do my best to be a part of this international network of friendship, tolerance and respect.


I made many good experiences with people who gave me a bed, a couch, a talk, a ride and/or just a good advice...


people, cultures, the ocean, horses, any kind of sport, animals in general, the way of life, history, diving, soccer, cooking, taking photographs (I hope there will come a day I can buy a nice equipment), cycling, climbing (tried it once, loved it!!)

Music, Movies, and Books

movies: "Because I said so", "Live and Become", "The Guitar", "The best exotic Marigold Hotel 1+2"
books: hard to say, I love reading but at the moment there is not the "one" book I could say, The time traveller's wife is pretty good!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I was on the research vessel "RV Cape Ferguson" at the Great Barrier Reef. It was a clear night (new moon). You couldn't see any light on the horizon. There was just the dark sky with millions of stars and the silent dark of the ocean. It was the most peaceful moment of my life.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm a marine biologist. So I might be able to answer some questions about the oceans.
I would love to learn new sports! I have tried: horse riding, soccer, diving, climbing, athletics, beach volleyball, water polo, skying, snowboarding, skydiving, slacklining

What I Can Share with Hosts

cooking, story telling, teaching about things concerning the ocean, discussions about so many things...
