About Me

** PLEASE NOTE: I live in Witten, which is near Dortmund but not IN Dortmund! **

Friendly, curious and perpetually hungry. My main goal in life is to see as much of this world as possible while I can. I was born and raised in Ho Chi Minh City to Austrian/Vietnamese parents. I attended an international school and had friends from many different countries and cultures from a young age. I really like to travel, see new places and learn about the history and culture of a place. I'm particularly fond of nature and will try and take every opportunity to go hiking or diving. I'm currently studying medicine in Germany at the moment and my doors are open for any travellers who need a place to stay. I may be quite fresh on CS, but I look forward to meeting interesting people and sharing stories about the world!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm very spontaneous when I travel, and Couch Surfing fits my style!

It's much easier to connect with locals and meet people who share your interests in travelling. Plus, I'm very uncomplicated and flexible - all I need is a place to sleep and shower, so a hotel just kind of seems like a waste. The best part is sharing travel experiences and learning the insider tips and tricks from a local ;)

Obviously, I want to offer people the same flexibility and experiences, so I'll always try to host if I'm around!

Music, Movies, and Books

I have a very wide taste in music (from movie soundtracks to rock to techno to rap).
Some of my favourites are: Macklemore, Imagine Dragons, Linkin Park, The Prodigy, Bag Raiders.

I enjoy movies that make you think and those that make you laugh.
Some of my favourites are: Back to the Future Trilogy, Marvel films, Interstellar, Inception, Mad Max: Fury Road, Kingsman, Catch Me If You Can, old comedy films

I used to read everyday as a kid. Now I just can't find the time. I'm slowly working my way through a Song of Fire and Ice by G.R.R. Martin.
Some of my favourites are: LoTR Trilogy, Harry Potter, Pendragon series, detective novels like those from Agatha Christie.
