I always say "Stay i-tune, and off beat".
I grew up in Santa Cruz, California- born to two German Parents, and now I've decided to experiment with returning to my family's homeland to continue my education and to see how/if I enjoy calling Europe my home.
My most favorite things are travel and music and meeting interesting and outgoing people that like the same.
I am a certified TEFL teacher. I enjoy genuine human exchanges and people that share stories and knowledge and dance to their own beat.
I am a big lover of the arts- whether- Painting, Mixed-media, Theatre, Music, Poetry, Fashion?- and likewise, find myself at my happiest when I am making my own and using my creativity- even if it is just crafting or making music compilations to gift to a friend.
5 things I can't live without:
Music, a good sense of humor, Travel, Chapstick, & Love (awww!)
Favorite European Cities: Berlin, Barcelona, & Prague.
Top places aching to travel not on the European continent: Thailand, India, Peru, Israel, Egypt.
I like to travel with a huge book of notes of things to do but with no specific time-line and all flexibility to allow spontaneity (and not let too much stress in).
I enjoy cultural monuments (museums, historical sights, etc.) but usually find the greatest joy in the random interactions where the spirit of a culture/ city/ human is unveiled.
