I've been travelling around my entire life. Never stayed in one place for more than 4 years, and at this point I've spent the same amount of years away from my home country (Mongolia) than inside it. That said, I'm fairly new to the concept of 'visiting' somewhere rather than living in it, but am enjoying it immensely.
Right now, I'm living in Berlin for an internship, and trying to spend most of my vacation time and weekends travelling around Europe.
Lastly, want to meet people from different countries and would love chatting over tech, movies, music, and whatever's in the vicinity, preferably over some weizen beer and nachos.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
To make friends, get local travel advice, and burst out of the traveler-expat bubble when travelling.
Music, Movies, and Books
Music: I listen to basically everything, some favorites are Neutral Milk Hotel, Eluveitie, deadmau5, Nujabes, Mumford & Sons, Damien Rice, Coeur de Pirate.
Movies: Scott Pilgrim vs the World, The Big Lebowski, The Fountain, The Shawshank Redemption, Gladiator, The Before Trilogy, The Social Network, Garden State (soundtrack makes the movie), Hot Tub Time Machine, Forgetting Sarah Marshall
Books: My favorites are probably Worm (a webfic), Letters to a Young Contrarian (by Hitchens), Mastering the Art of Soviet Cooking (by Anya von Bremzen), Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman (by Richard Feynman), A Canticle for Leibowitz (by Walter Miller), HHGTTG trilogy (by Douglas Adams). I'm currently sporadically reading through Discworld and its always comforting to know there is a long way to go till its finished. Also an unabashed fan of One Day by David Nicholls.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Apparently I was the first Mongolian guy ever (first was a girl) to visit Cherrapunjee in Meghalaya, India, known the wettest place on earth. Sorry, Mawsynram.
Teach, Learn, Share
I'm good at coding (or at least, that's how I get paid, so must be good enough), so I would happily teach or at least explain the basics to anyone. I occasionally do freelance translation so I would also be delighted to talk about that, in addition to teaching you basic Japanese, Mongolian, and some amateur discussion on historical linguistics.
What I Can Share with Hosts
Good convo, the ability to make something consumable out of the barest of ingredients, and tech troubleshooting. Plus long winded conversations on anything.
