About Me


finding it.


a friend once described both of us like this: "we got glasses, are pale and dorks" - well, well. it's an interesting way of describing people, isn't it?i'm quite a big contradiction actually, since i can be very introverted and very extraverted at times.
i don't think that i've come far enough to know who i am, so that i'm still figuring myself out. give it time and i'll be able to write something more cohesive and significant here in the future.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


well, by living, traveling and meeting exciting new people, i guess.


awwww, only one but it was better than i could ever have hoped for.


politics, urbanism, meeting new people, films and tv series, reading, writing, texting, anticapitalist alternatives like degrowth, transition towns etc., languages, programming, (queer) feminism, photography, riding my bike, sleeping, being lazy & being very active as well.
