About Me

I am a relaxed person, very interested in foreign cultures (like everyone here), eager to discover new things, fun to go out with, but picky at food :)
Travelling is my passion and I try to see as much of the world as possible (at the moment I'm trying to figure out how to make a job out of that). My current mission is to see the best of each continent before I'm 26.

I love long conversations about everything and nothing that make you loose track of time, watching sunrises and sunsets from rooftops (preferably flat ones),
having very late breakfasts and that certain feeling that everything is possible (which I always get while travelling)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

One: because I love listening to the stories people from different backgrounds than mine have to tell, and to learn from them. (the best and most interesting conversations I have are with people I just met, not with those I have known forever)
Two: because the best way to get to know a place is by getting to know the people living there (nothing new here, I know)
Three: because so far I've only met amazing, cool and supernice people via Couchsurfing, and I wanna continue meeting awesome people along the way
Four: Travel Karma

But (taking the risk of sounding like the ultimate boring and uptight person I'm definitely not) I'm not on Couchsurfing looking for random hookups. So just to be on the same page: I'm totally up for partying and drinking and everything but if you're more into coochsurfing than couchsurfing, you probably shouldn't host me. Pleeeeease dont judge me for putting this into my profile, I swear I'm fun anyway :)!!


I love to travel (already mentioned that I think), to explore cities and chill at beaches, go on safaris (I love animals too) and cruises, hang out with travellers and locals, have long conversations over a glass (or bottle) of wine, read, cook and eat good food, go out, bingewatch TV-shows and let others enthuse me for their passion

Teach, Learn, Share

The best stories stay hidden unless you ask the right questions and listen the right way

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can cook and bake, I know a lot about healthy diets, and I can teach you some German (if you for some reason feel the urge to learn it). I can also tell you about what went well and not so well on previous trips of mine (but at some point it's sort of hard to shut me up on that because there is so much to talk about)

Countries I’ve Visited

Bolivia, Brazil, Cambodia, Canada, Ecuador, England, Hungary, India, Iran, Morocco, Norway, Peru, Russian Federation, South Africa, Thailand, United Arab Emirates, United States

Countries I’ve Lived In

Austria, Finland
