Curious about the world I signed off my job as an auditor to travel the world together with my boyfriend. I'm an open-minded introvert who loves hiking, reading and writing. Besides I'm a bad coffeeholic, so if sharing some travel stories over a nice cup of coffee sounds fun for you, just drop me a message.
As I couchsurfed mostly with my boyfriend, please see some of his references, that include me.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I had some amazing experiences couchsurfing with my boyfriend. I love to learn about a place by the people who decided to live there more or less permanently and not only by the sights that I could google.
Travel - and everything that goes with it: photography, music, books and food. I'm also interested in politics and the history of your country/city. As I grew up in Europe I just learned about European history and would love to expand my knowledge and understanding of today's world.
Together with my boyfriend I write the travel blog http://travellus.de (sorry, just in German) about our experiences as a couple traveling the world.

Music, Movies, and Books
It's all about the folk - or could you imagine anything else for a life on the road? Besides that I love some good singer-songwriter-stuff and there's nothing wrong with some classic rock for me. And I'm always open for new experiences.
E.g. Bon Iver, Ben Howard, Bruce Springsteen, Milky Chance, Simon and Garfunkel, Yussuf...
One of my favorite films of all time is The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. It was the perfect movie to watch during my time as an office worker, when I had to save for my trip.
Oh and books. Where to start? Besides the classic Harry-Potter-Thing I grew up with, I love short stories and contemporary literature. Some of my favorite books are: "The unbearable lightness of being" (Milan Kundera), "Die Enden der Welt" (Roger Willemsen) and "The Orange Girl" (Jostein Gaarder). I could write this list on and on and on...
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Signing off my safe job for a trip around the world.
Hiking for ten days in the Peruvian Andes, sleeping under a crystal clear sky full of stars and sharing all these intense emotions with awesome people.
Teach, Learn, Share
I looove to cook. On every travel I try to carry at least one recipe of the country home, so problaby you could teach me a typical dish from your home? On the other hand I could cook a really nice meal for you. Hopefully. ;)
Currently I'm also trying to learn some Spanish.
What I Can Share with Hosts
A German meal that doesn't only consist of meat.
