About Me

I used to work as a waitress and bartender until it didn’t serve me anymore - or I didn’t serve it anymore.
In 2020 I quit my job and my life took a new turn. I started to study myself and social services. It was an amazing year: I had life changes and found yoga. I started to discover life and myself in a new way.

Now I am doing Erasmus in Porto and traveling whenever I can. Feel free to contact me, if you’re around! I am always up for a hike or trip to nature.

I used to absolutely love traveling. Seeing new places, people, culture or just sitting in the bus for 8 hours and listening to music - it's the best. My admission was to travel around the world. Lately I have started to question my intentions for traveling. Do I really love it that much? Am I just receiving? What do I actually have to give? I have a deep urge to serve, share and create, and I’m finding my way to do it. I get inspiration from other people.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To share happiness and love that I have received.
