About Me


see the world with the eyes wide opened


I love travel and discover the world. I love to be abroad, meeting people and cultures. So i decided to leave behind germany to travel and live in latin america, after a wonderful time in Mexico, Guatemala and Colombia i´m now living in Paraty in Brasil. I work and live in a hostel, that why I unfortunately cannot host. I like to learn how to cook meals from other countries. i enjoy to go to good concerts, and have a good talk and a cold beer.
