About Me

Hi everyone,

I am a 24 years old girl from Germany, born and raised close to Heidelberg and not too far from Frankfurt in the South of Germany, but I have relatives in different countries and lived abroad in various countries.

If I could I would travel every minute of my life and luckily I've been able to already see a lot of our world, but of course there are so many more places I still want to visit and I think Couchsurfing is a wonderful possibility to travel in an affordable way and in a way beyond typical tourism.

I am currently studying Humanities, Sociology and doing a course in translating and interpreting.
But also did other studies and courses before and do many different things.

I am a very uncomplicated, considerate, tidy, clean, non-smoker and depending on your preferences a very good conversation partner but can be also unnoticeable and quite, bury myself in a book in some corner.

Besides hosts, I am also happy to find some friends here which share same interests or also travel companions or simply people who want to grab a coffee or tea (yes, I am a tea lover), join me for cultural events or explore the culinary world or also who like to do some language tandem.

Under "Why I am Couchsurfing" I've listed my next planned travel trips,
and I am always happy to find travel companions, hosts or locals who like to show me around.

So feel free to contact me!

I am really looking forward to getting to know you and your culture/lifestyle
and am thankful for helping me find a bed while travelling or during short trips.

PS: I love to host guests myself and did so in the past,
but at the moment it is not possible, but hope I will switch over to the
hosting side very soon again.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I've done Couchsurfing before, although not with this site,
and I liked it very much because it gives you a unique possibility
to travel in an affordable way and getting to know local people and an insight into their lives, what is always very inspiring but also a great help if you urgently need a bed for a night at last minute.

It is also a good option to get first-hand and insider travel tips
for your destinations.

Singapur: Singapur City
India: Mumbai, Rajasthan, Goa, Kerala
South Korea: mainly Seoul
Switzerland: Genf

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

and teach/share with you anything I know or have experienced.
