Join Couchsurfing to see Benjamin’s full profile. It’s free!
Live, love, learn.
Im a very friendly and open minded being. I can talk freely to anyone without hesitation and this has opened many doors for me or saved my ass a few times!. Travelling is a huge learning process, because it allows for unimaginal opportunities to share both the small and big things in life. I love the freedom of uncertainty and unplanned adventure. My life is a rollercoaster except there is no beginning or end and i came off the rails a long while ago!
My philosophy on life is that I should be a good person and that I should always strive to cultivate the mind. Be the change you want to see.Change is a fundamental constant.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I have used couchsurfing to meet great people. I have now hosted more than i surfed because I had a space over summer. This was great to help others out and it added some excitement to my life! Theres nothing quite like having a stranger to stay!
Im hoping that now I will have the opportunity to visit others. The few experiences I've had couchsurfing were really great. The kindness of strangers is amazing and its such an authentic experience.
I like to take part in the forums and actively take part in social gatherings, its a great way to get to know people from your city who may be locals, expats of travelers. And the advice is very honest and useful. Thank you to the CS community out there!

La vie est vaine

Un peu de haine
et puis - bonjour!
La vie est breve
Un peu d'espoir
Un peu de reve
et puis - bonsoir!
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I started anEnglish school in Peru.
Hiked up to 5800 meters
I bought a motorbike in and drove it from the Cambodian border to Hoi An (about 1200km). One of the best experiences of my life and possibly the most dangerous!!
I once spent 7 days in silence, that was quite an experience and not as bad as you might think!
I've been fortunate enough to travel to all these places
Teach, Learn, Share
I teach English and I really enjoy it because it is very fulfilling to teach. And I love working with people!
Teaching is Reaching, Sharing is Caring.
I want to guide others, but i understand that others can only change themselves, and
see the change in me.
