I'm pretty new to Munich so I'm trying to settle in. I'm open to all kinds of activities but I'm - contrary to the overall spirit of this wealthy area - sort of a miser so I'm limiting myself to activities that will go easy on my wallet. I like good food and good alcohole though, good people as well and good music doesn't sound bad either. I tend to be verbose when writing so I better stop now before you stop reading.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
It gives you the opportunity to get to know lots of different minded people from all over the world. I used to be here to surf some couches. But that didn't work out very well - kinda wasn't traveling as much as I wanted. Instead, I hosted lots of people - from Australia, Asia, from all over Europe which was really a great experience as well.
I used to write up all kinds of interesting stuff here when I was still a student, but right now it can be all boiled down to somehow spending time after work. TV shows, going out, books, cooking and sometimes sports. I have an interest in psychology, video games, writing and translations though, and having had some level of professional experience in all of them I might contribute to a conversation about that. And I like to travel. And I'm addicted to news - from all over the world. It's that bad.
Music, Movies, and Books
It ranges from Classic Rock to Celtic and Balkan Punk to Hip Hop to film scores to Tom Waits to stuff I can't even put my finger on. And worst is I have bad memory for names. There's hundrets of bands I love and I have forgotten their name.
Some of the movies I like: 21 grams, In Bruges, High Fidelity, most movies by a Guy called Ritchie, Jarmusch, Charlie Kaufman, Scorsese and Chan-wook Park...and many many more
Books, for fantasy it's Miroslav Zamboch, Sapkowski and George R. R. Martin. Roger Zelazny, Richard K. Morgan and Robert Heinlein as far as Sci-Fi goes. Andreas Eschbach for other stuff, Chandler for detective novels and then there is books like "The Book Thief" by Markus Zusak that everybody should have read. I've noticed an increased interest in historical novels or books about past times in general.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Me and a friend we've run from a pack of wild dogs and then from an agressive cane swinging gypsi (nothing against them) in the Slowakian wildernes. Only to stumble upon a wild boar in the middle of the night who luckily was afraid of me. Then, I almost burned down a field of wheat that belonged to a Dutch couple who were so nice as to host us. All this because she - that friend - didn't believe that we arrived at our destination some 30 km earlier. Luckily, we made circle. Female intuition I guess - best night I ever had.
