About Me

CURRENT MISSION

to find a mission

ABOUT ME

All about me could take time.
So ill leave you with this little rhyme.
I once read about a scorpio,
who's inner heart could not show,
even to herself, she did not know,
but in time it would surely grow.
and soon the path would be clear
and there'd be nothing left to fear.

...on a lighter note, I started traveling over 2 years ago on a journey searching for something I didnt know I was searching for. Since, I've met the greatest love and greatest hardships of my life. I've changed a lot since the start of this adventure and I feel I'm far from what I once was but not yet what I'm going to be.
And it's ok with me. :)

..also
I make jewelry to finance my travels

PHILOSOPHY

i have a lot depending on the moment, i'm a bit of a quote junkie, the one that seems to fit 'em all has always been...we're all gonna die one day

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

i surf and cook and clean and laugh and say thankyou!.. show people that this project can change the world and the human connection knows no limits

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

every experience has taught me something new about myself and others and how to be a part of this life.

Interests

hayao miyazaki films, aceto (balsamic vinegar), poetry, airports/train stations, movie sound tracks, people, languages, reading, biking, cooking, muusssiicc, movies, smells, yes smells :) as in all the different smells you experience walking from A to B, challenging situations, breaking barriers, TRAVELING, being near water, high places, i.e. rooftops :) , bonfires, guitar, untranslatable words and phrases! , locked eyes, things that are "hands on", knots, human anatomy, anything with subtitles.

Music, Movies & Books

music and me have a unique relationship, some things are situational, especially country and rap, which i usually only enjoy in a social setting where everyone is singing and letting go of all inhibitions, but i enjoy any music in that situation :)

some of my favorites: imagine dragons, nick drake, coldplay, radiohead, sigur ros, the kooks, jonsi, birdy, mumford and sons, edder vedder, moby, dmb, 30 seconds to mars, the shins,...anything that moves me

when it comes to movies, there's no denying my weekness, i could spend all day in the theatre, the feeling i get when the credits role is pretty spectacular, i feel invincible, nothing can touch me and i can live in the movie forever :)

i love to read and hate that i havent read as many books as i hoped to by now but hey, cant read 'em all! i like to read books traded among friends and anything reccomended by someone, non-fiction is safer for me since i tend to be gullible in this life, i like to underline all the things in books i dont know or understand and research it later

One Amazing Thing I've Done
