  • Description

    Hello everyone :)

    I am Merle, 25 years old and born and raised in a small village in northern Germany.
    I worked 4 years in a hotel in Germany and two years on a cruiseship at the reception and the last year I did work & travel in Canada.
    I lived 5 months in a small village in Quebec and worked at the reception from a hostel and as a cashier in a restaurant in the ski resort. During my freetime I went skiing or walking in this amazing winter wonderland and trying lots of new stuff like dogsledding or fatbiking. The atmosphere in the hostel was perfect and I met many wonderful people from around the world.
    During the summer I stayed two months in Vancouver and lived with a family with three children. I helped with the kids, the house and the garden. It was a great experience and I felt in love with Vancouver!
    The rest of the time I did roadtrips in the east and west part of Canada. I visited Vancouver Island, Yukon and Alaska.
    And I absoutely love this country!
    I am very passionated with cooking and baking and trying out new food from all over the world.
    I am not super enthusiastic in doing sports, like going to the gym :D But I liked beeing outdoor and going hiking, biking, canoing or skiing and I try to do more yoga and meditation.
    Also I like spending time with my family and friends and of course with my dog Bella.
    I like reading books and watching reports with different topis.
