About Me

ABOUT ME

While I'm a stranger on the earth, a God searcher without church, a future loner among angels, I love meeting warm-hearted people and sharing experiences, thoughts and feelings.

After trying different creative activities (photography, painting, dancing, playing music, theatre, making film, etc.), I found the vocation of my life, writing. I'm a thoughtful and emotional writer, specialised in passion for football (soccer), platonic love and the beauty of life.

PHILOSOPHY

Happiness is less about pursuing dreams than keeping an open heart to the richness that life has to offer.

The best humour is making fun of ourselves.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I signed up in 2009, but really involved for the first time in the summer of 2010 in Russia by attending CS-meetings in St. Petersburg and Moscow and meeting warm-hearted Couchsurfers for sightseeing.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I became active again at the end of 2013 by organising and attending CS-meetings in Berlin during the Christmas and New Year holidays.

In March 2014 I created the weekly Cosy Saturday Meeting in Berlin and organised it until January 2015 when I moved to Amsterdam.

I'll begin to surf couch during my next trip to the Low Countries in 2016 and hope to host as well in the not-too-far future once I've got the capacity.

Interests

With a tower of Babel in my head, I'm addicted to learning European languages and can't imagine living without it any more. In spite of my passion for languages and my vocation of writing, I prefer expressing myself without words. I used to play football (soccer) and tennis. Now I'm more focused on classical ballet and have begun to play piano again.
