PHILOSOPHY
In a time where people blow up themself cause of their desperation peace networks are more important than ever before. We have to support the intercultural understanding to strengthen the world peace.

I think our western society focuses too much on success and too little on people and their personal needs.

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I did part of the community building of CS and inspired parts of the old website and was involved in CS as organization. However after more than five years of Ambassadorship (Global Amb from the time the system was introduced) I decided to step back from the organization when it was sold. Also initiated and Co-Moderated the European CS Collective in Eisenstadt where everyone was welcome to contribute.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE:
I started with Servas and Hospitality Club. www.servas.org is great! Most hosts are 40 or older but very young at heart people! They also have some rules (minimum and maximum two nights - except the host offers more) you have to go for an interview - for security but lots of hosts in OZ and NZ. You are part of the family for two nights...
Couchsurfed Germany, Sweden, USA, Costa Rica, Bangladesh... and had lots of guests from all over the world :-)

When I started travelling in NZ and OZ I used
www.globalfreeloaders.com the idea is free accommodation but also here people are interested in the traveller and liked to share ideas and views.

Fellow motorcyclists who I met on my travels in NZ e.g. www.kiwibiker.co.nz was very helpful. Very nice and hospitable people.

People who gave me a lift while hitch hiking also hosted me a few times - with some still in contact.

Hosted more than 190 people so far ^^
