About Me




A casual philosopher I like meeting people and talking to them and listening to their stories about themselves, their work, their culture, their travels. I have turned a vegetarian since July 2010. Occasionally I teach courses on Banking or International Trade at Management Schools. I like to be easy and uncomplicated.


Let peace be on earth

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


I join groups, share experiences, views.


Its great meeting folks from all over the world and listening to their experiences. They help me see the world in all kinds of interesting ways.


I love playing chess, bridge, solving Sudokus, Crosswords, reading up on history and culture or doing plain nothing! I like to travel to see places and meet people.
