Join Couchsurfing to see Alek’s full profile. It’s free!
To get to know new walks of life, and to learn everything.
I am very conscientious of others. Easy going/laid back. A man of few words. I love cooking for people (and I'll eat anything once). Drinks and chit-chat are wonderful. I'm Atheist but love discussing religion. Love learning. Dive bars. Affinity for music and Art. Frequent the Met. Open minded. Logical. I don't smoke but I'm tolerant. I enjoy all music except country but i'm willing to listen if you think you can persuade me.
There is no free will (but we must act as if there were), cause and effect determines everything. Life is cyclic and we must experience as much as we can to enjoy it as fully as possible.
Life is Wonderful.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I want to learn everything. I want to travel and experience the attitudes/lifestyles of differing people.
"Let us endeavour so to live that when we come to die, even the undertaker will be sorry."
I hosted over 100 people in about four months and had a wonderful time.
After traveling a year and a half, I can say i enjoy both aspects equally. It's interesting and wonderful, meeting new people.
I think I prefer hosting, but while I travel, I hope to couchsurf as much as possible to meet new and terrific people.

Survived a three ton safe falling on me. And travelled alone to 26 countries starting with a bag a one way ticket and $300.
