2019 🇩🇪: Starting a new life by studying abroad and painting a lot
Update (Munich 2020): If you don´t have anyone else to go to the Museums on Sundays, drop me a message, I would love to meet up with you guys! Same with partying but I would rather house-parties than clubbing at the moment so... But still tons of latino-dancing.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Staying in the middle of nowhere at T A T A C O A D E S E R T (2018): It has been one of the most gorgeous experiences of my entire life, it has been also the most challenging one. I went there with a good friend of mine and one more gringa that we met on the way to the desert. We decided to stay with a local family which lives so far away so that it let us experience the real world of an average family from the desert. That means that the closest neighbor lives 45 min. away by walk, there is no electricity available but they use a solar panel to have barely some electricity to charge their mobile phones and the radio. I slept in a traditional tent made of leather, of course I had to sleep in the floor. Their kitchen is so rustic and they still cook everything with a wood burning stove. Yes, it sounds like a nightmare for somebody who is not used to the social conditions that the majority of Colombian peasants have to face in their everyday life.
I have to say I was over the moon every second I spent there. I saw one of the most beautiful landscapes I have ever seen so far. I saw clearly millions of stars. I tried a wild fruit from the cactus. I had a swim in a beautiful water spot which has the greenest water that I ever imagined. We got lost in the middle of the desert with my friends and we ended up getting the way back. They gave me away some fossils that we found when we were walking around the desert. Feeding the animals after playing with them. Having fruit meals from their garden, etc.
We stayed with this family just because one of them is a member of CouchSurfing so we had a unique experience.
That is how I understood that even the simplest things can bring so much happiness!
