About Me

CURRENT MISSION

I hope to laugh ten times more than worry, while meeting amazing people.

ABOUT ME

I am a relaxed, happy girl with dimpels. People say I'm a little crazy, but in a goofy, funny way. My mission is to make new friends and have inspiring moments with them. I did my first long trip to Australia for 4 months and experienced on travelling alone for the first time in my life. Learning that I can really trust myself and am fully comfortable being alone was one of the most important things I've learnt so far. I love being around other people but knowing you are on the other side of the world, by yourself just travelling without a safety net was extatic.

Some might say I'm bit of a hippie because I try to do my own part for the planet. I am a vegetarian and am really interested in clean, pure food without plenty of processing.
I also made the decicion on not having a drivers licence and riding my lovely Jopo-bike everywhere I want to go.
Often I find myself feeling hopeless with mankind and naively want to save the whole world!
Unfortunately that can't be done in one day or by one person, but I try to make a difference in small ways as often as possible.
Starting simply with smiling to people and being caring with friends and foes.

PHILOSOPHY

I belive that everything happens for a reason and there is some positive effect in every unpleasant event too. You should concentrate on the the things you already have and not on the ones you lack; a thing that I am still trying to learn.
