About Me

CURRENT MISSION: travel to India


ABOUT ME: My normal friends say I m strange while my strange friends say I m just normal. I try to be as strange as I my normality allows me. I studied and work for a company so I try to find people which live different from that and show me life from another side. I m not a party animal and prefer a quiet talk to jumping or breaking my nose in a concert (which I already did).

I would like to find sustainable ways to live while keeping my normality and without having to move to an ecofarm (which is kind of a dream) least not yet! I dont smoke, drink alcohol nor coffee or take other legal drugs. I believe that shareconomy will replace capitalism and europe will be lead this change... pushed by the economic crisis...thats why i support linux and all other forms of sharing.

The less the better... trying to get rid of material attachments and keep life simple. I m convinced sharing is the way... it just need time for the economy to reach the inflection point. Along the way there is this feeling where money is getting less and less worth

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I like to meet people with different backgrounds and interesting stories


I host travelers and sometimes join local events.


I enjoyed my hosts... they've been great people.. I hope meet them again some day...I have hosted a few people... they have been good guests so far!
I prefer to host interesting people which whom I can talk and not the ones who just search for a free place to sleep.


I m not interested on talking about the wheater unless a huge forecast simulator (running on linux) is involved... all other topics are welcome. I like to talk about economics, shareconomy and linux. I also like sports like swimming and running in winter. I m searching for sustainable ideas for my life. I dont discuss religion/politics since everybody has the right to believe in whomever he wants.
