About Me


Quit my jobs, just bought a VW campervan from 1974, having it restored right now, can't wait to be on the road. Project's name: www.petervan.com.


Serial entrepreneur by profession and passion, pilot, photographer, reader, walker, runner and traveller by heart.


Sometimes I can even surprise myself with the amount of optimism that I seem to have.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


Two couches, four beds ;)

And as a professional speaker in tourism industry I heavily promote couchsurfing as the true way of travelling.


Only good ones so far. Lots of interesting guests, some became friends.


Travelling with not more than my backpack, flying, literature, play reading, the Lake Constance, Vienna, good wine.

I love to go on extended cycle tours, see www.cyclepeter.com for me experiences.

Music, Movies & Books

French movies, baroque music, tons of books.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I once took my bicycle and cycled across the highest pass of the world (17000 ft, 5400m). Another time I cycled across Canada.

Teach, Learn, Share

Learned mathematics and philosophy at university. But then wanted to do something else, went into business. Set up and a company and another, still running those. Since two years I have been stepping back from working that much, started to travel again.
