Join Couchsurfing to see Sarah-Louisa’s full profile. It’s free!
Since I returned from studying in Rome (amazing city), I am living in Frankfurt now. I have been born in northern Germany and lived in Düsseldorf/Cologne for quite a while.
I am absolutely easy-going, trustful and uncomplicated.
I am funny and out-going but I also enjoy serious talking and a minute for myself.
I love winter sport like skiing and snowboarding, actually I do enjoy all kinds of outdoor sport.
All my true love is with Canada where I have been living for a year after I graduated from high school. It is so huge, white, cold, friendly and beautiful. I worked as a dog-handler in Canada and trained sled dogs for a family-run dog kennel. An unexpected, but mind-blowing job and a time I will never forget. I found the best host family. A family you can't even dream of, that's how nice they were and still are. So glad, we are still in touch.
Treat everyone the way you wanna be treated.
Truth is reasonable for mankind. (Die Wahrheit ist dem Menschen zumutbar.)
The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
To be honest, I have used Couchsurfing mainly for finding apartments and meeting people to hang out with in the past. I am not the typical couchsurfer, that stays one or two nights. But couchsurfing was great in the past when I lived in Greece, Rome and Bolzano to meet with others and to look for long-term-rental homes.
I have planned to use couch surfing more often in the near future, especially as a guest. I am really looking forward to doing a trip to Stockholm and Istanbul this year. Let's see
Art, Art, Art...Photography, horseback riding, snowboarding, skiing, dog sport, music, psychology, cooking&food...
Music, Movies, and Books
I am into literature, but I know for many that's boring, so I won't elaborate on it too much here. Just a little bit... ;)...this is my favorite German book selection:
Der Vorleser by Bernhard Schlink
Frühlings Erwachen by Frank Wedekind
Das Versprechen by Friedrich Dürrenmatt
Der Prozess by Kafka
Am obsessed with indigenous cultures and vikings. Thanks to my study I have become crazy about native american literature and inuit legends, so check out
"The absolutely true diary of a part-time Indian" and "Flight" by Sherman Alexie as well as Zacharias Kunut's magical movie "Atanarjuat"
I love Michael Haneke, e.g. "Das weiße Band" or "Caché", other movies I like: American Beauty, Der Laden, the Pledge, Der Name der Rose, Juno, Harold and Mauld, Dances with Wolves, Brokeback Mountain, Saving Private Ryan, Braveheart, the astronaut's wife, the Missing, the red violin, wind talkers, Gegen die Wand, Carnage, Match Point.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
It must have been the Buffalo herd running loose next to my car in British Columbia which was mind-blowing and scary at the same time. I will never forget the size of their heads!
Hitchhiking in Sweden, which I promised my parents never to do, ever, but I did. I missed the last bus in the swedish prarie and this very nice history student from Norway picked me up with his truck. He was on his way to get groceries, which are apparently cheaper in Sweden than in Norway. He had this amazing huge elk dog in the back of his truck and while he taught me the whole Norwegian history, the dog would drool on my left shoulder for one hour. I can't thank him enough for having been so helpful, interesting and nice to a lost girl in Värmland one summer in 2010.
Traveling on your own, living abroad, either with roommates or in a host family, working with strangers, especially when you are young, can be very challenging. Anyhow, I have always met the most wonderful and helpful people out there and always managed to adapt to their style of living, which has shaped me to the best of who I am by now. Last but not least, many of them have become friends. So happy about that!
What I Can Share with Hosts
If you are really interested in learning the perfect German, I'm the one, because I am from Hanover and that's where one speaks the pure and most beautiful German haha ;)
I'd be always volountering to walk your dog, feed your cat, brush your horse and do all kinds of art work with you. If you are interested in Art exhibitions, Frankfurt is definitely worth a trip. We have great museums and galleries, not just skyscrapers ;)
I work as a hostess on shows and fairs, so any girls working at the frankfurt fair are welcome to crash at my place for the "magic 5 days" ;)
I like to cook, eat and drink, especially red wine and vodka. My family is absolutely nuts (don't worry, I won't take you there), my mum would give us zips of vodka when we were little and had a stomach ache, because she insisted on vodka cleaning you from all kinds of germs and bacteria from the inside. When we drink at home my dad sometimes sings swedish songs, so I can teach you at least one drinking song and will always be willing to have a shot with you ;)
