About Me

I just wanna play the drums for a 90s rock cover band. I just need the rest of the band.

I’ve just rented out my apartment and quit my job to travel Europe. I have a work visa for Spain but no agenda. My goal is to become fluent in Spanish.
I play several instruments and love to write lyrics. I’m utterly fascinated with languages and want to learn about history, culture and food.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To experience Europe from a local perspective. I’ve been here as a tourist but want to delve deeper this time around.

Europe has so much history, passion and joie de vivre that I want to lose myself in. I want to cook traditional foods from scratch, learn about olive oil and wine, discover the bistros, bars, restaurants and hangouts that locals go to.
