About Me

CURRENT MISSION

I want to see the world, and know more and more people, I belive the answer to make things right lies within our souls and minds; we must find our humanity again...

ABOUT ME

I'm an honest person. I'm vegan. I like to get to know different cultures, and places, I like to read a lot, I like music all in general, and have a thing for tattoos. (Currently on the planning of two more!!) I want to know everything within my reach, life is to short, I want to spend it as good as I can, In doing so I hope to help people, I belive the answer lies within ourselfs and our will to unite and rise up against oppression and destruction.

The environment has become the single must important thing challenging the human species, we must unite, forget everything we were thought and start again, together.

PHILOSOPHY

"Too legit' to quit"

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Well, I believe by helping others we can achieve the cooperation and understanding we really need, getting to know someone else by their culture and values educates yourself on different perspectives of life, by helping people in this community, we can all learn something, and maybe in the future tear down all the psychological and fiscal walls that dived us.
