About Me

ABOUT ME

I study German and English part time, and work part time in a bureau de change. I try to live a low-impact life (www.lowimpact.org) and I love nature.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Not enough yet :) I have surfed much more than I have hosted, because I now live with my parents and have nowhere for anyone to stay. Once I get my own place, I hope to be a good host!

Interests

My biggest love is nature.

I am interested in learning skills that we have mostly left behind. Things like fermentation, growing my own veges, natural beekeeping, mending clothes instead of buying new ones...

I enjoy learning and experiencing languages and cultures.

I am also interested in feminist thought, freeconomy, and fooooood.

Music, Movies & Books

I have a very eclectic taste and play the cello. I am currently listening to a lot of music by Maddy Prior (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XyD0SL9kH-M).

I love fantasy, as well as things set in the Middle Ages. I am not so interesting in gory or raunchy stuff, I prefer adventure and intrigue - think more Robin Hobb than Game of Thrones

Films are a bit too long for my attention span, I prefer series. At the moment I am watching Once Upon A Time on Netflix. I also like Adventure Time, The Mighty Boosh, Black Books, Spaced and Greenwing.
