About Me

I am a passionate person. I am crazy in love with Latin America, languages, and dancing. My clothes are colourful and so is my mind. I love heat and summer! I tend to be a little sensation seeker but I also enjoy reading and watching films with a glass of wine at hand. I seriously have fun studying grammar. I love writing, blogging, and photography. I believe in equal rights for all human beings and identify particularly with feminist and LGBT movements.

So that was a lot of "I". What about you?

Music: When I started to develop my own taste in music, I fell in love with alternative rock and I still enjoy Nirvana, my first favorite band, even though nowadays I don't play them too much. Generally I love music which makes me dance. Given that, I enjoy various Latin American styles: Salsa, Samba, MPB, Bossa Nova... even Reggaeton, to confess a guilty pleasure. I also like HipHop and Gipsy Punk a lot. I never figured out how to move my body to electronic music and enjoy it way less than most people currently do. For calmer moments I like Soul, acoustic singer-songwriter stuff and also classic music.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Traveling in South America, I fulfilled a childhood dream and swung at a liana through the Amazonian Rain Forest... just to crash into a tree within about 3 seconds.

More successfully than that, I opened a beer with a sheet of paper at first attempt.

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach: Languages: German, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese and English; basic French; a bit of Salsa and photography; the recipe of a delicious franconian wine cake; and finally how to open a beer with anything except a bottle opener, such as a sheet of paper.
