Join Couchsurfing to see Bernd’s full profile. It’s free!
Explore South Africa and everything it has to offer!
I'm a adventurous, open-minded, easy going and fun guy ... I love doing all kinds of sports including extrem/adventure sports. You could say I'm an adrenalin junkie ;). I'm also very spontaneous and there's nothing more exciting and fun than meeting new people and sharing a great time together ...
I have done quite a bit of traveling already ... travelled 2 years around the world, shorter trips here and there and now I am traveling through Southern Africa for 3 month.
Don't waste your energy on things that happened in the past, things you can't change and what might happen in the future ... instead use the energy you have on things you CAN CHANGE, present events, friends/family and having a great life - Live is too short, don't waste it !!
Also don't make too many plans, sometimes you just have to follow your instinct and your heart ... when I travelled I kinda developed a "let's do it" attitude. In life you come across a huge amount of opportunities, don't think too much whether you should do it or not - JUST DO IT ... you will notice that it changes your behaviour and mood, you will experience much more being this spontanous ;)
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
My primary goal is to see the whole world, meet as many people as possible and share experiences and cultures. If you're around near my current location and need some help or you're just interested in a fun time - LET ME KNOW. I'm more than happy to help out and have a laugh together
I'm really glad to have experienced a lot of the couchsurfing spirit and awesomeness ;) I've been to many meetings and gained a lot of CS friends around the world. I love how everyone is so open minded, trustworthy and helpful. I can only try to pass forward all the tips and great experiences I collected on my trip. And that's my goal !!
