About Me


exploring the world


Spontaneous, curious, bubbly, open minded, sportive and full of energy! always looking for adventures, everything new and challenges. Spend most of my time in the mountains, love being on a plane, hate traveling as a typical tourist, lying on the beach makes me bored, wanna see the whole world, could live on fruits only, always planless and loving and enjoying life!


Enjoy life and live. But live your own life and not someone else's.

Always do what feels right!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have come to the point where I can't imagine traveling without couchsurfing anymore. All the people I have met through cs have broadened my mind in a way, let me see the world differently and brought me forward in many ways.


traveling, sports, cooking, languages, climbing, running, people, learning, good food, wine, spontaneity, adventures, yoga, teaching, snowboarding, mountainbiking, exploring, camping, nature, mountains, snorkeling, slacklining, skitouring, everything new, the world.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: A bit of everything. rock, jazz, flamenco, rap, hip hop, music with a good rythem... it can be anything, it just depends on the song and my mood. my taste is constantly changing.

Movies: I'm not really into watching tv, but what I like anyway are documentaries and sport movies, especially those about climbing like the first ascent or the sharp end.

And when it comes to books, I love all the travel magazines, travel guides and any kind of books about different places or activities in the world. Unfortunately everytime I try to read a book I fall asleep, no matter wether it's a good book or not.
