About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Exploring Berlin, doing some serious studying, having a seriously good time.

ABOUT ME

I like meeting people who are genuine and have a passion for life. I enjoy listening and I'm glad to help others. Usually I'm full of energy and always on the move. I consider sports and music a big part of my life. I'm adventurous and an outdoorsy kind of person. Backpacking, camping, climbing, swimming are things I like. I also love juggling - I went to circus school for 7 years and it's still one of my favorite hobbies. People say I have a positive attitude and laugh a lot.
I'm very passionate about art (incl performing art) and architecture.
I'm definitely a coffee person but love tea as well. I like circus stuff. sushi. photography. reading. movies. walking barefoot. being spontaneous. airports. silence. sauna. singing.museums. dogs. living on the beach.

PHILOSOPHY

Curiosity. It's all about asking questions. Experience. Learn. Share. Be brave. Try - risk something! Dream - use your imagination, look at the stars, be creative. Enjoy and love!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I love to travel. I always feel like going somewhere. I adapt to new places really fast and call them home. I'm not sure where home is though..
Having remarkable conversations with interesting people is probably one of the greatest things one can experience. Tell me a story. Make me laugh.
Couchsurfing is an awesome way to meet people and to see the world.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I already surfed couches back in Germany and in Italy and from 2008-09 I spent 16 months in the USA of which I surfed three months with 15 hosts in over 12 different States and met the coolest people. Amazing times all in all. Good memories. (2009)
I recently traveled through Finland for a month and had some wonderful couchsurfing experiences too! :) (2010)
-> My new home is in Maastricht, Netherlands!
Come couchsurf at our place! :) (2010)
- I just came back from an Erasmus semester abroad in Istanbul! Great city, amazing people. Surfed two different couches there in summer and I can recommend it. (2012)
Summer 2013: Surfed in the South of France for 3 weeks and as always CS did not disappoint! :)
Living in Berlin since 2013 and hopefully being able to host again soon in my new home.

Music, Movies, and Books

movies:
..the ones that are thoughtful, unpretentious, creative, surprising, clever, sensitive, artistic, with an eye for light.

books:
..philosophic ones, inspiring ones, witty ones.
Reading the VII seminar by Lacan at the moment which is a brilliant example for being genius and frustrating at the same time. ;)

I listen to a lot of different music from all over the world and I'm always open to new stuff. My mood influences what I wanna listen to.
