About Me


to live


A little shy, considerate and curious. Trying to figure out life.
Sometimes a dream weaver but I always find my way back to earth.


Live and let live.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I think having an open mind and providing people with the space they need to be themselves is the way forward to create a better understanding of our differences and our similarities :)


My first experience was in Bordeaux, France where I was warmly welcomed. They told me to feel and act if I were home and offered me food and a shower. We ended up sharing some bottles of wine, talking about our experiences. I loved it!!


I am interested in literature and music. When I am alone amongst the crowds, they're the ones who keep me company. I like outdoor activities like hiking, rock climbing, kayaking,... Recently I picked up chess though I tend to lose allot so no hidden talents there. On a sunny afternoon you can find me sitting on outside drinking coffee, watching the people pass by.
