About Me


Where to go next?


Personal description? Pom pom pom.

I'm a kayakker. But I hate cold water.
I'm a we'll see kinda guy. But I love clear schedules.
I'm a thinker. But I love to get my hands dirty.
I'm a blabbermouth. But I love listening.
I'm a cynic. But I hate pessimistic attitudes.
I'm... But I'm awesome.


If today was perfect, there would be no need for tomorrow.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Surfing and hosting. Participated in a local event or two.


Surfed a couple times few summers back. And a couple times more throughout the following semester. And a 4 week couchsurf-only trip through Eastern Europe. Hosted several times as well.


Too much. It's seriously a problem.
Love the outdoors, hiking (all over Europe), mountaineering (climbed Gran Paradiso 4000+m, Mount Toubkal 4000+m), used to be seriously addicted to canoe polo and climb every so often.
Love to get my hands dirty, so took masonry courses, learned to drive a forklift and tiled some floors. Tinkering with arduino's.
Love to travel, with friends or alone, did some student projects abroad.
Love to read, mostly non-fiction. But given the above not always enough time.

Music, Movies, and Books

Quite difficult to describe my taste in movies, music and books, but now for example I'm reading Into thin air by Jon Krakauer. (update: Running Lean from Ash Maurya and Lean Startup by Eric Ries)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Some years ago on St Patrick's Day my lovely morning poop was green. That categorizes under both 'seen' and 'done'.
