About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To ask a lot...to listen...to think (too much)...to doubt, verify, clarify, then doubt some more...and laugh at the same time, sometimes bitterly, ironically, even hysterically, but sincerely and thoroughly at all times...
To share...knowledge...experience...wisdom...stories...more laughter...
To keep walking...

ABOUT ME

...I spend too much time taking notes, contemplating, building random bonds with strangers, analyzing whatever...
...wander, pilgrimage, walk, hike, backpack...mountains, forests, sea or ocean...those are the keywords...
...I always have too many questions...and sometimes give vague answers...or reply with a question...
...I don´t eat meat
...environmental issues, animal rights, human rights...volunteering, activism...that´s my cup of tea (I´m no fan of coffee, anyway)
...and I can fly, too...

PHILOSOPHY

´There is no way to peace. Peace is the way.´ – J. A. Muste

´All beings tremble before violence. All fear death, all love life. See yourself in others. Then whom can you hurt? What harm can you do?´ – Gautama Buddha

I´m not radical. I don´t persuade people that my own way of life is better then theirs. I always ask for a personal story. I try not to judge. I believe in discussion and that laughter relieves pressure and guides you through uncertainty.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

This year I´ve walked Camino Portugués. And that´s just the beginning. ;-)

What I Can Share with Hosts

I live with a flatmate and her dog (a great one, but easily startled), that´s why I can´t host too often. But let´s give it a try, anyway. ;-)

Apart from hosting, I´ll be glad to show you the city, enjoy a cup of tea with you or a glass of wine or even a dinner.
