Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
hosting and demanding others to host me
yes of course I've had quite a lot of experiences giving me better access to the way of living and culture at the place I've was travelling to.
Well I guess 'socialising' - I spend most of my time with meeting people and talking with them about this & that, conversing with them about seriuos or unserious things, exchanging profound or senseless thoughts and opinions, making silly jokes, watching films and so on. or partying, drinking a beer or 2.... if possible outside somewhere in a park where we can have a barbecue as well. or we go to a concert or cinema. or I invite friends to my place, cooking or drinking something together - in short,all that you do with friends.
if the weather is fine i play soccer and skate somewhat,not very high-flying but simply for fun.
I also like photography a lot.
and then on the other side I also have to study and work a lot for my phd - it's the nerdy side of my life ;)
and finally I like traveling and getting to know different cultures - ideally by meeting local people.
Music, Movies, and Books
the last fiction books that impressed me a lot are by Andre Kaminski, Albert Camus, Mohsin Hamid, Rafik Schami and Kiran Desai.
Another non-fiction book that I highly recommend is "The price of civilization" by J. Sachs.
Some films I like are: exils, waltz with bashir, nader and simin - a separation
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Yes, there are a few things in my life that have been extraordinary and outstanding in many many different areas of my life.
Referring to travelling these things include the landscapes around Hampi in India, the spicy delicious Biryani of Hyderabad, the festive gathering of people on International Workers' Day in Milano, the pastéis de nata in Lisboa, in a very sad way the slums in Mumbai, and then definitely the courtesy and hospitality people welcomed me with in many places of the world.
Teach, Learn, Share
Teach & Learn: language and culture - and anything you ever wanted to know about pharmacy and drugs ;)
I can also show you how to open 2 bottles of beer without any tool or instrument. (and I don't use my teeth either!)
Share: time, conversations, experiences, ideas, food, beer and wine, pasta and pesto...
