About Me

CURRENT MISSION

on the road in France

ABOUT ME

I love to live, to make the most of it trying not to get distracted by useless worries. everything is possible as long as you think positive and unless you don´t stop dreaming..we need utopias! I am addicted to travelling or better i am crazy about couchsurfing. For me its the best thing on earth. bringing the diversity of people together, to live in peace, with tolerance and without political borders..nations..there is only one world!
I believe in natural medicine, destiny and dance ;) I am a making-the-world-a-better-place-for every-single-person-no-matter-which-belief-culture-look-origin wannabe ;)
After all this political correctness....eeehhhrrr...I almost forgot about..I could die for good food :D cooking is meditation for me and sharing the delicious results of my mental recreation with many lovely people is one of the best things i can imagine.
i like to ask people about their lives and way of living and thinking and then i like to listen what they are telling me. but i will be happy too, to answer questions hahaha give and take..thats what its all about...finding a balance, being me and being you. but to be me is not so easy sometimes..i can´t make decisions and i want to do everything all at one time..and then it gets really confusing in my head hahaha

PHILOSOPHY

Be tolerant, optimistic, considerate.
Don´t mind the talks too much, it can really drag you down. Just be you and don´t pretend what others might want you to be!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

When I have time I go couchsurfing..nothing can stop me.
I live in a small city near Hamburg.
I tell everyone i meet about CS because i am very convinced about this project and i think participating here will change your way of thinking always in a good way :)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have been exploring cultures with CS and had so many wonderful experiences. People showed me around without hosting me. They even took days off only to give me a real local introduction to their culture! it has been really amazing. I did a trip in eastern europe and also had one of the best experiences in my life. people are soo incredibly friendly and helpful there. We had awesome dinners and conversations. to be honest, i really made friends for life.. thanks to couchsurfing :)
last summer i got the opportunity to host some surfers eventually :) it was very nice to give something back since i have only been surfing up to then. i hope there will be even more people i can host.

Interests

Traveling, cultures, politics, pureness, nature, medieval ages, alternative healing, permaculture. I love the outdoors! Hiking in the mountains to get your mind free, rock climbing to feel every part of your body. The environment is very important for me. I try to conserve and preserve its diversity and quality by informing, educating and discussing environmental issues and behavior with the people. Therefore i am keen to soake up everything i can learn about ecological movements in different countries especially i am interested in the situation in the eastern european countries.
I´m a passionate dancer. I like reading big books and watch independent movies. I really like to spend time with friends drinking tea, beer, wine, juice..depending on our mood i guess :) Oh and juggling..combined with dance and fire it´s a thrill :) but i can´t perform very well yet..this is a hidden cry for help :D

Music, Movies & Books

I love independent movies, especially from Scandinavia and Mads Mikkelsen in it. But sometimes I need big action or spygames.
When it comes to music I like Ska to cheer you up and Drum´n´Bass to rock and dance. But I´m a quite tolerant listener I´d say.
Books? I need books in which I can drown into and feel what the protagonists feel. I love to soak up the emotions and tensions between the characters and read for hours.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

One of the most amazing things i´ve done in my life was to jump out a plane and fall through the clouds to get the best thrill ever!

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you how to play with fire toys :) I can show you how to cook some really tasty yummy meals.
I´d like to learn to be patient, a slavic language, how to take stunning pictures everybody will be jealous of :)
We can share love, peace, happiness and a good time.
