About Me


travel the world


I'm half German and Vietnamese, grew up in Germany and the US, lived in South Africa for a short bit, and studied in the Netherlands and England.
I've studied art history and am mostly interested in contemporary art and photography. Big big foodie, music lover, nomadic...


Shoot for the stars, think big, always stay grounded.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've unfortunately been rather inactive, since my living situation didn't allow me to host couchsurfers.I think couchsurfing is a great concept with which you can get to know many interesting people! I'm always up for meeting up :)


So far I haven't been doing thaaat much of couchsurfing, but I did have my first experience in Mannheim, Germany and absolutely loved it. Couchsurfing in Flagstaff, Arizona was very verymemorable - although we didn't get to know the host, his kindness and trust of letting us stay in his house while he was gone traveling is probably something you only experience with couchsurfers!
