About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Getting through the hard time of life as enjoyable as possible....

ABOUT ME

Its so hard for me to write something about myself. I can talk about ramdom stuff and that for hours but I have no idea how I should describe myself.

Oh I guess I should start with this: I am not like a normal average woman. :)

I have no handbags, I hate the color pink and I am really direct. If I don´t like something, I will tell you and if I don´t mind then I really don´t mind. (Does that make sense?? hahaha)

I love to do crazy things and I am always up for spontaneous adventures. I haven´t really done so much (at least in my opinion). Therefore I would like to do crazy things more often. So if you know something (in your city) tell me and I will do it (or lets do it together).

At the moment I am travelling to see the world and want to explore my limits, my strengthen and weaken.

I don´t know whats going on tomorrow but I will live today as if this would be my last day.

I grew up in a realy small village where every body knows everybody. If you were rude to the old lady next to your school, your mom would have known it before you arrived at home. So I decided that I will change my location and my life. I moved to a big city and lived in my own apartment. After one year I wanted to see more, so I went to America. Thats my situation at the moment and now I try to see as much as possible in this country and hope I will find a lot of people they help me to see the world through different eyes and to become friends with them.

PHILOSOPHY

What doesn´t kill you makes you stronger! (Thats my favorite)

"I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it" - Groucho Marx

"Wenn es einen Glauben gibt der Berge versetzen kann, so ist es der Glaube an die eigene Kraft!" - Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach (German)

That means if there exists a faith which is able to move mountains, then its only the faith in my own power. (I hope this translation is okay)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

At the moment I am just surfing. I dicovered CS during my year in America and I will defnitely become a host when I am back in Germany. I hope that I will see all my hosts as couchsurfers on my couch someday. That would be awesome. I also hope that I can host a lot of different people.

I love couchsurfing as long as both (host and surfer) know the real meaning of couchsurfing.

I tried to tell my friends why I love it so much but its hard to tell someone who isn´t open minded. Its more about the cultural exchange than saving money. I love to listen to different stories, get to know different places, opinions and lifes.

Its more about becoming friends than the financial savings. Thats just another positive effect but defnitelly not the main reason.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I traveled 14 days with another person through Florida and had the best vacation ever with an absolutly stranger. We are really good friends now and I love to tell other people about my great experience.

I also had the craziest weekend ever with a host from New York City. We basically experienced the movie hangover. Only difference was we got piercings instead of tattoos and no one got married. :)

Interests

I am interested in a lot of different things.

One of my biggest interessts is meeting strangers and talking to them. I love talking but also listening. Nothing can make me more happier than travelling alone and meeting new people.

Furthermore I am interessted in different sport activities, like snowboarding, windsufing, kiting, ice / skating, dancing, swimming, and I am open minded to try other things.

Additionally I am interested in reading books and watching movies (no Free-TV!!!)

I love to sit infront of a fireplace, read a book and drink some hot chocolate in the winter time.

One of my biggest interests is driving my motorcycle. I love to ride my bike and my dream is to travel a lot with it. Just me, my bike and this unbelivable gorgeous feeling of freedom!!!

Music, Movies & Books

Movies: I have seen so many movies the last few weeks I can not say which one was the best. But some of my favorites are: In Time, Avatar, Mr. Bones (Comedy-Version), Grown Ups, The Green Zone,

Music: I like everything that I am able to listen.

Books: I like very old books. Most of the book that I read had german titles. So I think you don´t know what I am talking about if I am listing them. One of my favorite english author was Stephen King. I like the way how he describes every detail and you feel like you would be in the book.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

The first time when I arrived at New York City. I have never seen sky scrapers. So the first time when I arrived at NYC (Times Square) I couldn´t believe my eyes.

The best feeling ever, was the first ride on my motorcycle!!! This feeling of freedome is breathtaking!!

(By the way) In my opinion we shouldn´t search for the most amazing thing in our lifetime because every second that we are living should be the most amazing moment in its own way. So you can not tell which one is more amazing. Make your whole life as the most amazing thing!
