About Me

Hii everyone :)

I'm greeting you from Saarbrücken, in the west of Germany (very close to the French border).
I moved here a few months ago to (finally) start my psychology studies. That's why I am still discovering the city myself, so I won't really be a good tourist guide - nevertheless I'd love to discover the city together! ;)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

First of all, because I want to trust in humanity and helpfulness.
And of course, because I want to meet new open-minded people and see places I would never see when sleeping in an isolated hotel with tourists. It's so much more exciting to meet locals!
Above that, I like the idea of welcoming the world in my tiny apartment. Couchsurfing connects ;)
I haven't surfed many times yet, but the experiences I have made so far were very inspiring and enriching for me and I'd love to make more such experiences and share them with others.


-I am interested in people and stories - I can spend hours listening to other people's life and traveling stories! :D
-I am always looking for inspiration (:
that can be places, moments, people, music, etc.
-I am trying to eat vegan (even though that is more flexible when I am traveling, because different cultures also mean different food)
-I am interested in nature, environmental protection and sustainability. I'd love to learn more about organic agriculture and gardening and living self-sufficiently.
-I love camping and bonfires !!! I love that feeling of freedom, independence and flexibility, which you experience when you carry all you need for living on your back and you can just sleep wherever you want and wake up with the sun. Amazing!
-->this list could go on and on :) ...I most likely have many interests I haven't even discovered yet. So I am open for almost everything you can teach me!!!
