About Me

Heey! My name is Maria Ester (or Daisy haha), and I study Culture Criticism Curation in London atm, but Im originally from Vienna, Austria or Bratislava, Slovakia (both).

I just want see and experience the world outside from what I know. I am extremely passionate about different cultures and getting to know just about anything!

I am very interested in health, or rather adopting an alternative healthy lifestyle that serves me best (this includes my daily meditation practice and being vegan/vegetarian) as well as living in accordance to my spiritual beliefs. I am a free-spirited person, open minded and generally very loving :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

to travel, experience, meet new lovely friends, learn

but mostly for the magical connection that happens when people meet and our minds connect for whatever short time and then we have an amazing conversation that changes lives


pretty much everything. seriously. but I am really into meditation, yoga and lucid dreaming and all things trippy and surreal. also dancing, i love to go out and dance all night!

Music, Movies, and Books

I adore artsy films with beautiful aesthetics and little plot (haha), but otherwise im into movies like the matrix, vanilla sky or fight club

I listen to lots of things, but mostly I like music I can dance to... Its a mix of electronic, hip hop, alternative dance etc.
But at times, I just really feel like listening to classical (piano) or jazz music.
And if Im in the mood for it I really like old school rock bands, like Pink Floyd, Joy Division, Nirvana (for old times sake) it really gets quite versatile.
my spirit animal would have to be Cat Power, her music just touches my heart like no one else

And again, I like all kinds of books, generes. So just to name a few I like: 1984, Woyzcek, the soliatire mystery, anything from Remarque, Sherlock Holmes series and many more

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I took part at a Ayahuasca ceremony (life-changing!)

Teach, Learn, Share

Im happy to teach you how to meditate and people I meet also get very curious about my lucid dreaming practice so I am happy to share that!
