About Me


to explore and to enjoy!


actually, my name is ulrike, but you can call me uli. i guess my mother is the only person calling me with my full name!

well, i feel happier about myself since i´ve stopped trying to straighten up my hair. what a waste of time!

i prefer going by bike or by foot everywhere instead of driving a car or taking the bus.

i don´t think german carnival is funny.

oriental dance makes me happy : )


just start over again and again (and let things go) ... that's all you can do in life! and never forget ... love changes everything!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


with being me? ... oh and i know what rca or jack cables are for!

... mhh , at the moment i´m traveling, but when i´m back home (i guess it´ll be in leipzig first) we can hang out together, so let´s go for some dancing or some good partys.

i can show you around. there are so many nice places in the area where i live, so we just can gor for a walk, a bicycle tour, having picknick in a park or at a lake close by or we just can go for a coffee ...

oh, i make good coffee (addicted .... damn)
i try to improve my cooking skills, so be my guest!
i can bake, yeah!

and i like to share music with you (which i bought, of course!)...


most of them are experiences i´ve made through hospitality club ( i don´t know why but now i prefer couchsurfing. it´s easier to handle. but my profile at hc is still active).

but through both sites i´ve stayed at some peoples houses or people came over to my place ... nothing negative so far .... just the good memories!


people and talking to them
living with each other
music (singing/songwriting, hopefully soon playing the drums. i am so bad in taking lessons on a regular basis. argh!)
love (most important thing in life : ))
concerts and small festivals (i´m too old for the big mess)
d-d-d-dancing (hip hop/breakdance/oriental/belly dance...)
scuba diving
basketball, yes!!!
discovering new places, new perspectives, new ways
human rights (especially women rights)
development cooperation
fair trade
beaches and the sea ... water in general (still try to become a real cool surfer chick)
midnight sledding
south facing balconies
unconventional life ...
chocolate and coffee, always ... damn it!

Music, Movies, and Books

movies like soul kitchen, eternal sunshine of the spotless mind, berlin am meer, princesas, rize, fried green tomatoes, whale rider, lilja 4 ever, east is east, miss marple ... i like movies telling stories about daily life in different countries ... ohh and ronja rövardotter : )!! ... but if we will ever go to the movies together, make sure it´s not too late. i fall asleep pretty soon. just watching something annoys me too fast.

music like reggae/dancehall, singer/songwriter stuff, electronic beats, drum n bass, good hip hop, some jazz, soul and neo-soul, breakbeats ... from all over the world ... music that makes me dance!!! huuh like robyn or bakkushan! right now i can recommend the boys from abby, reich & schön (fantastic german band!) or mikroboy. and there is always a reason for listening to clueso or the adorable maria mena! yes, sometimes i also go for the corny stuff!

books ... too many writers to discover ... lately i read a lot from isabel allende (again), simone de beauvoir, benoite groul ... and i always love to re-read the story of the little mermaid

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

life´s amazing. i like the small things which can lighten up a day. like riding my bike early in the morning whilst the sun is still rising up. a good cup of coffee on a balcony in summer with a dear one. or a smile from a complete stranger...

done: oh I hitchhiked with a caravan (we really had no car!!) from portugal to germany with 2 strangers, that was fun!!

Teach, Learn, Share

love and respect. learn. teach. share.
