About Me


learn spanish! / aprender español!


I have just finished my bachelor in social anthropology, and now I want to travel out in the world and see the things I have just read about in books. My plan (so far) is to travel in Spain for 3 months - and I hope to learn some spanish =D

I am open, friendly, curious, adventurous, moral, determined, imaginative and spontaneous. I am funny in a strange way. And I am crazy in a not scary way.

I love to travel, see interesting places and meet new people.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am all new in I just hope someone will "take me in" for the first time.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I have been on the top of the Eiffel Tower, seen the Colosseum and strolled around at the Acropolis. But what I remember the most, is all the interesting people I have met while traveling. - Like James the blues man in New York (the most pessimistic street musician ever), Joalka, Kirsi and Ani in Dominican Republic (so wonderful kids) and Ali in Thailand (he could not speak one word english, but every time I went past his tin cabin on the beach he jumped and waved like crazy).
