About Me


Travel and learn


Hi everyone,my name is Helen and I'm a 25 year old girl (or woman? ) from Berlin. Almost a year ago I finished my studies. After a couple of months working to save up enough money, I head off to Mexico, where I spend three amazing months. Now I want to see whats to discover in Guatemala. I am very keen on learning new things at the moment, therefore I would like to volunteer or do any kind of exchange.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I went to Lesvos twice and both times I stayed at a cs members' house. I enjoyed it a lot, because my hosts were honest and funny people who made me feel very comfortable. Also I met with some nice people for a coffee or for a trip to the beach. I've had the best couch surfing experience in Malaga where I went for Erasmus. Me and my hosts had so much fun so we decided that I moved in right away. I spend some wonderful months with them. Unfortunately I have had a rather unpleasant experience when traveling alone why I decided to stay far from couch surfing for a couple of years. Now I feel I'm ready again and very hopeful to meet some inspiring people.
