Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I host people and talk to them about the potential of a common exchange platform


I see most things in life as opportunities to either make friends or visit friends

Music, Movies, and Books

anything lindsay anderson, michael winterbottom

Books? comeon, well "the power of myth" by Joseph Campbell is pretty hip with me at the mo.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The next village (Kafka)

My grandfather used to say: "Life is astonishingly short. Now, in my memory, it is so compressed that I can hardly understand, for example, how a young person can decide to ride to the next village without being afraid that---apart from accidents---even the time allotted to a normal, happy life is far too short for such a journey."
