Join Couchsurfing to see Sophia’s full profile.
I am an open-minded geographer who loves traveling.
I am part of the Pangaea Young Explorers Program and Pangaea Project (www.pangaeaproject.org). Through this environmental project, I visited many new places, got to know the best people ever, learned loads and got motivated to act for the environment myself.
I am also an alumni of the European Geography Association (EGEA, www.egea.eu) and the Climate-KIC InnoSpace Journey 2018.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I believe that couchsurfing is great to connect with local people, to learn about the culture in your host country and to travel cheaply too.
I had my first couchsurfing experiences in Utrecht and liked it very much! Before that, I slept on many couches of my friends and hosted some as well. I always had positive experiences and never faced any problems.

Teach, Learn, Share
I can teach you tips and tricks of Microsoft Word and Adobe Lightroom, help you with learning German and how to make knots that you need for climbing.
I'm always happy to have conversations in Dutch, I want to keep learning Brazilian Portuguese and Russian, know some words of every other language and whatever you can teach me that I am able to learn.
What I Can Share with Hosts
