To determine my mission....(proving to be more difficult than expected)
Infected with a serious case of the travel bug.
Born in South Africa but for the last 15 years a proud Australian. Been to places as amazing as Germany, Canada, United States, Luxemburg, Argentina, Brazil, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Bolivia, New Zealand, Belgium, France, England, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Netherlands, Scotland, Hungary, Bulgaria, Poland, Italy, Turkey, Greece, Austria, Czech Republic, Spain, Portugal, Morocco and and and. Still plenty of countries on the list though! Im particularly looking forward to Egypt, Israel and Cuba.
One of my favourite activities is just blabbering on about my travels.
How's about I just list some quotes I like....
Searching for bigger and better distractions.
Born gay, follow the ray, born straight (that´s me), refuse to hate.
It was in love I was created and in love is how I hope I die.
Fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves but wiser people so full of doubts. Bertrand Russell
The truth is, everyone is going to hurt you. You just got to find the ones worth suffering for. Bob Marley
The opposite of war isn't peace, it's creation. Jonathon Larson
I love Pandas, they're so chill. They're like "Dude, racism is stupid. I'm Black, White, and Aisan. And everyone loves me. Cause I'm a panda. So stop the hate and start the love, man."
Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you sit down quietly, may alight upon you. Nathaniel Hawthorne
Life isn't about finding yourself it's about creating yourself. George Bernard Shaw
Insanity in individuals is something rare but in groups, parties, nations and epochs, it is the rule. Nietzsche
A boy makes his girl jealous of other women. A gentleman makes other women jealous of his girl.
One thing only I know and that is, I know nothing. Socrates
Love never keeps a man from pursuing his personal legend. If he abandons that pursuit it's because it wasn't true love. The Alchemist - Paulo Coehlo
You will never be able to escape from your heart. So, it's better to listen to what it has to say. That way, you'll never have to fear an unanticipated blow. The Alchemist - Paulo Coehlo
When someone seeks, it is all too easy for his eyes to see nothing but the thing he seeks, so that he is unable to find anything or absorb anything because he has a goal, because he is obsessed by that goal. Seeking means having a goal. But finding means being free, remaining accessible, having no goal. You venerable one, are perhaps really one who seeks, because pressing after your goal, you fail to see many a thing that is right before your eyes. - Siddhartha, Herman Hesse
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I´m mostly accustomed to the surfing way of life but hosting Jess for a few days was great fun!
Here's something I wrote a long time ago... Got too hard to keep up with whilst on the road
In Edinburgh Oliver, Aaron and Yasin were kinda enough to allow my friend Caris and I to stay with them. We had some fun times and it has only made me want to couch surf more!
In Vienna Honzo showed me real hospitality :).
In Berlin my friend Louise and I stayed with Ghassan for 4 nights! We laughed, danced, cooked and shared some fun times together.
In Brugge Louise and I stayed with David. We swapped many stories and I watched one of my new favourite movies with him for the first time.
In Ghent, Louise and I stayed with Wim and his 3 other couchsurfers. I felt as if I was hanging out with a group of friends. Loved my time in Ghent.
In Paris, Leandro showed Louise and I a really fun time. We won the couch surfers pub quiz together. He introduced me to so many people and I can't imagine having a better time in Paris.
MUSIC- i like a little bit of everything (well almost everything)
Whether it be Architecture in Helsinki, Andrea Bocelli, Crookers, Queen, Kaiser Chiefs, Jose Gonzalez, Regina Spektor, Tegan and Sara, Camille, The Middle East, Ramones, Nirvana, Ella Fitzgerald, Vampire Weekend, Billy Joel, Yelle, Gipsy Kings, Mystery Jets, David Guetta, Calvin Harris, Strokes, Beatles...
Let's just say I like a lot. Very open minded and love finding new artists.
- pub crawls
Music, Movies, and Books
Siddhartha by Herman Hesse is the most powerful read of my life. Cheers to Ashley for recommending it
I enjoy shows as pathetic as Buffy the
Vampire Slayer, Grey's Anatomy, Charmed and Skins.
Movies such as Dogma, Perfume Story of A Murderer, The Notebook, Outbreak, Lord of War, Inglorious Bastards and The Hairy
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
The Perito Moreno Glacier in Argentina. Went there with some German backpackers and spent the day running around the area going from point to point waiting to see giant pieces of ice fall into the water. You know when you miss it because you hear a thunderish crash.I eventually got a video of a piece falling - I'd love to show it to you. I have never seen so many shades of blue in my life.
Teach, Learn, Share
I like teaching, learning and sharing :)
I can share stories of many travels, i like learning about people, cultures, instruments, languages and more and teaching hmmm well you´ll have to wait and see.
