About Me

Always look on the bride side of life

I'm a open-minded good-humoured guy, who is, trying to give more attentiveness as to my environment, sportive, sometimes a little bit clumsy, sometimes a little bit adventurous, a vegeterian, and a naturist. Most of the time I‘m up for a coffee, especially in the morning, meet new people, share food with them, do sports together and have nice talks about everything. Think you can always learn something, from every person.

Please read the *my home* section and please write a personal request, because I want to know why you want to stay with me (if it's not an emergency request).

I don`t mind, where you come from, what the colour of your skin is, your religion, neither your sexual orientation or identity, you are welcome and,

happy to meet you :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Because travel is not holiday. I love to listen to your (travel-)stories, who you are and what's your perspective of life and your experiences. Love to share mine.

I hosted and surfed several times, but not always via Couchsurfing.
Almost 99% really fantastic experiences.

CS is not tinder.

Please, don't send me random friend requests, when we never met or don't know each other.

Improving my English.

Love the spirit :)
