About Me


My current mission is to get more out of life through traveling and meeting lots of new people.


I'm a woman still discovering myself and my abilities. Through travel I try to better myself, especially socially, and learn more about the world.


My personal philosophy at the moment is to try to get what I want from life and not what others want me to do with my life.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


At the moment I can't host since I am travelling indefinitely.


I had one brief couchsurfing experience in Paris. It was not the best first experience but it didn't scare me off :)
4 years ago I couchsurfed in Lisbon with Filipa and Francisco, who were such lovely people who made me feel like home :D
3 years ago I was travelling and volunteering in the US. My couchsurfing experiences there were great! A lot of hospitable people.
Last fall (2018) I couchsurfed around New England and met awesome people!

Music, Movies, and Books

I like all kinds:
- Movies: horror, comedy, drama, oldies, ...
- Music: rock (old and new), reggae, desert blues, musicals, ...
- Books: I’ll read anything, but I have to say that Stephen King is one of my favourite authors.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I went on student exchange in 2012 and this was a big thing for me, because I've been a shy girl for years but I want to overcome this by forcing myself to be sociable and get to know a lot of people.

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach: I am a practical person and love planning and organising. So I can always help out with that.
Learn: I love to learn new things and skills; anything really.
Share: I love sharing life and travel stories.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can help cooking; and do some cleaning if you want.
