Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Host, Meet, Be Hosted


Little, but only positive so far.


Love movies, music - from jazz to rock to classical one, got quite a diversified taste there. Enjoy reading, but don't do it sufficiently often. Enjoy getting to know new people, cooking with and for others. Nature. Hiking. Swimming in the lake.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Swimming in lake in a volcano crater in the Philippines
Eating a huge and delicious fish, combined with a city tour for 2 USD in Myanmar
Seeing the Foz do Iguaçu waterfalls in Argentina
Rowing in a small wooden boat on Lake of Zurich
Sleeping in some random town in some random people's hammock in Colombia
Celebrating christmas with slum kids in Manila (Philippines, too)
Climbing on the roofs of houses of a deserted town in India
... The complete list would be so long.. Many things more i could add.. Its the small things that occur unexpectedly and that can hardly be planned... And hopefully the list will even grow longer...
