About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Colombia en bici

ABOUT ME

- What happened to Couchsurfing?? Please, please give us back the pre-Nov. 2014 homepage with useful search and requests, the groups, uncomplicated layout that doesn't need too many clicks to see the important informations, etc. etc.!!! The idea of CS was (is..) such a good one and i met so many interesting and amazing people while being on the road, or received them at home. I'm really VERY disappointed and angry about the current page, as i don't see myself able to use CS in a way that i used to do! - ------------------------------------------------------------------ As you can see on my pictures, I like to be on the road and meet people. Beyond that, i love to do the following things: cycling, hiking and other ways to enjoy the nature, having a beer with friends, reading books, playing the guitar, going to music festivals and liveshows. I'd call myself an open-minded person and appreciate if you are as well. I'm queer and i'm always interested in what's happening in the world and try to do my bit of change in a positive way.

PHILOSOPHY

Don't just make plans, ideas and dreams. Put them into reality!

Doing stuff is a lot more important to me than having stuff...

I read that on a toilet door in Santa Cruz, Bolivia *g* but I really liked it: Ama a la Pachamama! porque todos somos parte de ella.

Another favourite: Lieber mit dem Fahrrad zum Strand als mit dem Mercedes zur Arbeit.

Keine Macht für Niemand (by Ton Steine Scherben)

never ever lose your hopes and dreams, but never try to touch the sun (by Nguru, a swiss ska band)
