About Me

I find it quite hard to pin myself down in a few words, but first of all, I love being among people; to chat, laugh and drink, end up in more serious conversations, or just dance the night away. In my professional life, I try to teach teenagers some German, which I do with pleasure.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I want to get to know different places and people, to learn, grow and gain new perspectives: Couchsurfing seems a good way to reach that.


I love music, dancing, reading, being outside (on the beach, in the forest, in the mountains...), and having a good time with other people.

Music, Movies, and Books

My musical heroes are Neil Young, Patti Smith and Leonard Cohen, but I'm also into electronic music. Some of my favourite movies are Amélie, Dancer in the Dark, Il Meglio Gioventu, Das Leben der Anderen and La Vie d'Adele.
To name a few books that I really loved: On The Road - Jack Kerouac, Anna Karenina - Tolstoi, The Brothers Karamazov - Dostojewski, The Crimson Petal And The White - Michel Faber, Blindness - José Saramago and Die Wand - Marlen Haushofer.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

One of the most amazing experiences I've had in my life was going to a gig in London of this group called Lamb, which I totally loved at that time. I went there on my own, 17 years old, by plane (though I'd never taken one before) to meet a bunch of people from all over Europe that I only knew from the Lamb forum. Those 48 hours in London were probably the most intensive and exciting of my life.
