About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Enjoy life as it comes. Go with the flow. "Surrounded by the flowing river he does not hear the sound of flow."

ABOUT ME

Instead of promoting myself, I'll just say something more useful instead:

I don't like schedules and programs and I have a very weak memory.

I prefer arranging for hosting about a week before. Arranging a month or more before creates two problems:

1st I forget
2nd I don't always know for sure that I'll be home at the time.

I'm ok for last minute calls too, if I'm available.

For anything else you want to know about me, please do the following: For the good stuff, check the references from my friends and guests (be warned, they ALL exaggerate ^_^ ). For everything else, surf my couch, call me for a coffee or beer, or offer me your couch when I visit! :P

PHILOSOPHY

I'm the past, I create the present, I forget the future.
or
I forget the past, I create the present, I'm the future.

Either way, it works for me.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I enjoy hosting and I've done a lot of it. I like going around with my guests, but if I'm busy, just the feeling of offering is enough.

I haven't surfed a lot so far. In time...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I saw a light at the end of the tunnel and all of a sudden I was born!

Teach, Learn, Share

I may teach anything I know and learn anything that might seem interesting. Now, what I know is a bit of visual arts, drawing, dtp and other small stuff, but mostly what I know is how to be me: relaxed, laid-back, non-stressed, lazy, loving, daydreamer,.. ...I can teach you! ^_~
