About Me

CURRENT MISSION

not to work too much

ABOUT ME

Gabriella: I am half lithuanian, half swedish. I have lived in Berlin since September 2007. Berlin is a wonderful city and has an amazing atmosphere! For the first time in my life I feel like I am at home ;-) Here I met my partner Alex and now we live together in Schöneberg quarter, western part of Berlin. I am a lawyer and I work with contracts for a Clinical Research Organisation. I have a 11 - years old son Henry, who lives in Sweden, but comes regulary to Berlin to visit us. I want to travel with my son, to teach him to respect other cultures, and to make travelling a part of his life. When I travel, I love to meet local people, to taste local food and some local drinks and to listen to local music.

Alex: I am originally from Hamburg, but I live in Berlin meanwhile nearly 15 years. I was trained in microbiology and business administration and I am now working for a major pharmaceutical company. Freetime is for family & friends, I also have a passion for music and I play and create music, and I am happy to be back into sports again since this summer :-)

PHILOSOPHY

Life is a journey, not a destination.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing
