I've lived all over, mainly in France and the US, but spent time in Hanover, DE and Stockholm, SE. I grew up in a German family, but my father left Germany for France when he was still quite young, so we lived more as French culture and other than eating delicious German food we did not use the German language much at home. Then moved to the states as a teen and back to Eastern Europe for University.
I enjoy running (for fun, but also to compete) also I practiced ballet and figure skating for many years. Skiing is a favorite as well.
I studied Political Science and the Arab-Israeli Conflict.
I'm an avid traveler and my list continues to grow. Trying out a new culture from food to language is one of the most free and exciting feelings.
Milan Kundera is my most coveted author- this quote really speaks to me:
“Anyone whose goal is 'something higher' must expect someday to suffer vertigo. What is vertigo? Fear of falling? No, Vertigo is something other than fear of falling. It is the voice of the emptiness below us which tempts and lures us, it is the desire to fall, against which, terrified, we defend ourselves.”
I heard about Airbnb when my mother used it, and then I found out that a friend of mine hosts from her condo in Carmel, California.
