About Me


Find a new home


I am.....small, easy to entertain & full of content
I can get along with nearly every person, which does not mean, that I like every person
I am a vegetarian and love good tea or coffee
I like to see life from different perspectives
I need privacy as much as a healthy social life
I hate it when people are not reliable
I lose jewellery all the time
I need people and music around me to feel alive
I finished studying but feel there is so much more to learn


Not everything that is edible is also digestible.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Well, I hosted people in Leipzig, but can't anymore now because I will be on the road myself very soon. Otherwise I think I just try to give back what I got when I met really amazing people through my travels! A balance of giving and taking....


couchsurfed a couple of times, hosted a few people


film, music, theatre, photography, books, foreign languages, food, alternative health, life

Music, Movies, and Books

I really like reading, everyday, everywhere, everything. At the moment I'm into newspapers to get a better glimpse about what's happening in the world.
I love short stories, novels by Ian McEwan and other English contemporary authors. I wanna start reading travel literature.

music: everything dancable: gypsy, rock, indie, rock, but I also love to listen to singer-songwriters, if they know what they are doing

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I rescued whales on Fairwell Spit in New Zealand. Really amazing creatures!
