About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To share...knowledge...experience...wisdom...stories...laughter...

ABOUT ME

...I spend too much time making notes, contemplating, building random bonds with strangers...
...wandering, walking, backpacking and mountaineering is my kind of thing...
...I always have too many questions...and sometimes tend to give vague answers...
...I'm standing at a crossroad between being a vegetarian and a vegan (again)...
...environmental issues, animal rights, human rights, that´s what makes sense to me...
...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 takes you through uncertainty.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

How much time have you got? :-)

What I Can Share with Hosts

At the moment I can´t share much since I don´t live in a place suitable for couchsurfers. But that will change soon, hopefully.

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