Is there a way to have access my samba on the raspberry pi over the internet? To have acces through my normal file browser? I don't want to use FileZilla, just a normal file system. Couldn't find a tutorial.

Generally speaking Samba over the Internet is a bad idea. See here:

This could prove problematic, however, if you are not an administrator on your remote workstation.
