About Me

20-year old, trying to survive through life whilst studying to get a literary and cultural analysis diploma. Other than that, I'm an extremely open and sociable person, who loves nice coffee, a drink or two, and dancing till dawn. My calmer side includes loungy ambient music, black tea and a captivating book or friendly company. Ultimately, wild or chill, sociable or not so much, everyone is welcome on my couch as long as their minds and hearts are open.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Humans are intriguing creatures, why not meet as many as possible? I believe couchsurfing is always an enriching experience for both host and guest!
