About Me


writing my first novella


I'm a free spirit full of passion.

I don't care about the mainstream; I have my own way of life.

I don't read news regularly; I think independently.

I'm not interested in fashion; I prefer ancient things.

I seldom use social media; I talk to people.

I cherish real friendship and never stay at a superficial level.


I've learned from experience that happiness is less about pursuing dreams than keeping an open heart to receive what life has to offer.

Why I'm on 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.


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'm addicted to learning European languages and can't imagine living without it any more.

In spite of my passion for languages and my dream of becoming a writer, I prefer expressing myself without words, dancing ballet and valse as well as doing sport, especially outdoor sports without equipment.

Last but not least, I love watching European (association) football. For me there is nothing more splendid, more glorious, more passionate, more thrilling than this soul-stirring game, than this symphonically harmonious coordination, than this balletically elegant performance, than this brilliantly colourful grandstand, than this epically mighty singing, than this everything-melting atmosphere.
