About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Live my life in a way that won't make me regret anything on my deathbed

ABOUT ME

I'm very passionate, calm, adventurous, considerate, open to pretty much everything, except the things that do no good. I always aim for happiness and whatever will make me happy, I will explore. I think that's pretty much it!

PHILOSOPHY

One of the things that's very essential for me is happiness. I believe anybody can be happy, like the dear Lincoln have put it: "Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be". I enjoy the little things in life because in the long run, they become the big things. Those endless nights out in a foreign city with people you feel a connection with despite just having known each other for a few days; the warmth you feel when being with your family; the fact that the whole world is at our feet and that when there's a chance for us to explore and to live, we're free to take it.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

Due to the fact that I live in halls of residence, I cannot host anybody.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have never surfed before, sadly, but I have met some truly amazing friends via Couchsurfing, friends I still keep in touch with and people I consider some of my best friends!

Interests

I'm very interested in languages. I've been learning Spanish all through high school but it wasn't until I spent a month in Spain that I started being able to actually communicate properly. After that, Spanish became just as important to me as English, sometimes my Spanish is actually more fluently than my English, which I love, hah. It has opened up so many doors for me and I decided to learn Portuguese as well so taking over South America will be more straightforward!

Music, Movies & Books

I'm very much like Charlie in 'The Perks of Being A Wallflower'. I tend to like the book I've just read the most. I don't know why. It's weird. I do have a persistent favorite, Ética para Amador by Fernando Savater. I always carry that book on my travels. I also love To Kill A Mockingbird, Les Jeux Sont Faits and Phantom of the Opera. Amazing books.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

The most magical moment I've ever experienced must be something that happened during my language trip to London in 2011. As prior said, I enjoy the little things and this was the smallest thing in the world but when I look back it was something so big it's hard to forget. It was very simple: We were crusing on the English freeway, my hostdad driving, my hostmom and my hostsisters in the backseat yelling rather than singing along to Beyoncé's 'Single Ladies'. Simple as that. I looked out of the window, the stars were shining so bright and in that exact moment I was so incredibly happy. I was amazed that people I had known for less than three weeks could make me feel so much at home and make me so euforic.

Also, hiking the Corcovado in Rio and seeing the Redeemer in real life was something I'll never forget!
