Age is a statistic generated by your birth certificate. I come across as serious, but in fact I am very easy going. I love sharing stories over a cup of coffee or a bottle of red wine. I rather go to bed late because I talk too much than party too much. Talking to 'strangers' has always been a good-bad trait of mine as I have made the most amazing friends this way.
It's not the state of your physique that matters, but the state of your mind.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I have stayed with people through CouchSurfing and had great experiences. However I had even nicer times with hosting people.
A rock or a stone fascinates me. Geology and Paleontology are two of my hobbies. Love camping and if I can swim in a river of mountain pool, why will I want to swim in a swimming pool?

Music, Movies, and Books
History, Nature, adventure and travel are just some of the books that keep me occupied. Very few novels have knocked my socks off.
