About Me

I love my "captain fantastic" team (my 4 kids and my dog) ;-)

Mein Lebensmotto:
"Das Leben findet immer nur im gegenwärtigen Augenblick statt.
Jeder ist der Meister seines Schicksals; es ist an uns, die Ursachen des Glücks zu schaffen. Das liegt in unserer Verantwortung und nicht in der irgendeines anderen. " (Der XIV. Dalai Lama)

Meine Lieblingsbücher:
"Die Weisheit des Buddhismus Tag für Tag" (Danielle u. Olivier Föllmi)
"Unter dem Tagmond" ( Keri Hulme)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Couchsurfing- for me it is one kind of active "Servo per Amikeco" (Dienen durch Freundschaft/Serving by Friendship).
And because of my full-time employment as "owner and manager of the MAMA HOTEL" ;-) I have not much time and possibilities to discover foreign people, their country, their culture, their way of life...
couchsurfing affords me 'to be out and about' in a different way - without traveling.

"Nicht das Ziel ist das Entscheidende, sondern das Unterwegssein." ... und weil ich nicht so oft unterwegs sein kann, um die Welt zu entdecken, habe ich mich entschieden, mir ein kleines Stückchen der Welt zu mir nach Hause zu holen.

Und nun -nach meinen ersten Erfahrungen als Gastgeberin- weiß ich, das war eine der besten Entscheidungen, die ich in meinem Leben getroffen habe.
