About Me


Conquer the world!


Keen interested in getting to know people from all over the workd and spending some quality time together by exchanging experiences, laughing together etc. I am an open, positive person who believes in the principle - treat others the way you want to be treated yourself!


Now is the best time!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Word to mouth


Had very nice experience surfing couches back home in Austria, Slovenia and France!


exotic cuisines - new product developments
socialising, entertaining
reading, studying
outdoor sports (hiking, mountaineering, skiing, tennis, basketball, swimming)
Latin America
travelling and exploring the wonders of our planet
dancing (ballroom and Latin style)

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: love real stories but also a bit of fantasy, generally a fan of light comedies with a recent interest in Spanish movies (Almodovar etc.)

Music: Really anything that lights up the day / mood with the exception of house/techno/rap

Books: prefer specialist literature / magazines around food/drinks, management, travel, philosophies, daily affairs

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

One of the highlights in my life was certainly the active participation in the carnival in Rio in Feb 09, moving down the samba drome in seahorse outfits and being carried away by the experience itself - amazing!

To the most beautiful natural highlights I would count Foz do Igazu waterfalls in Brazil and Chapada Diamantina national park in Bahia, Brazil
