About Me


update: I know- my response rate is very low. I used to live in Egypt and apparently a lot of people mixed up Couchsurfing with a dating website. I dnt wanna answer those mails or give them even some attention at all.

no stagnancy


Actually my time is quite limited. I love to do lots of different things. So in the end Im doing so much and I cannot decide what to leave that I find myself running from A to B.
Therefore I love to enjoy some quality time, exciting, with substance, deep going.
As you might guess my life speed is way too fast...well..not for me...but for some people somehow.
I prefer to take the hazardous and the inconvenient paths cuz I think this way I am learning more. It sometimes goes wrong (well sometimes too often) but at the end I always make it somehow. I certainly dont like people who stay in the comfort zone.

I think Im full of joy and appreciate what I have in life.

I love to talk nonsense and to make bad jokes which you might not expect from a small girl like me.
So be prepared.

I am a vegan. And I love healthy food with good quality, though I dont like to cook. So you are welcome to cook for me. haha
I am a good eater.

What goes around comes around.


a boat is safe in the harbour, but it hasnt been built for this.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Well I surfed peoples couches at many different places and everytime it was unique and special. I also hosted several times and I think Ive been capable to show people around and specially make them not leave without getting to know Berlins awesome nightlife.


-running (this year i did my first whole marathon, it was amazing), boxing, diving
- i participate in debating tournaments, i guess that kind of makes me a nerd
- nightlife in berlin
- being free
- eating
- i play bassoon, hardly anyone knows this instrument, but its kinda cool

Music, Movies, and Books

Hermann Hesse--> best german writer ever
J.R.R. Tolkien --> Lord of the Rings
George R. R. Martin --> Game of thrones
(guess that makes me a nerd again)

I love classical music, like Schostakowitsch
But if I go out for clubbing I prefer electro, deep house, bass and more bass

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Its not only about the good things in life is it?
Sometimes its good to face hard times and see things you better shouldnt see. Because only then you can recognize when the bright sight of life comes to apperance, only then you can value and appreciate the good things in life and everything what you have.
