About Me

My mother is writing a book about me (not sure or she is joking or not), when it is on the market, I'll tell you ;)

If you need a couch, please read my profile entirely until the end, the two parts 'About' and 'My home'
=> It is not that much and I will decline couchsurfing requests from people who didn't read it. My reason for that? Couchsurfing is bringing people in your private environment, this is always something where you have to be careful with, in a mental, physical and safety way.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

I love couchsurfing, why? It changed my life in a good way and until now almost every experience was amazing, most people who are in couchsurfing have a good attitude of life! It feels they are like family!

I join/organize regulary couchsurfing meetings: hikes, food'n pub meetings, new member meetings, parties with different subjects... My mission? Bringing people together from different cultures! If people need advise about couchsurfing, as a CS ambassador I am always available.

In my life I helped a lot of people and sometimes it turned against me with really bad consequences, gossip and stuff..., but I am happy to be in couchsurfing now, in that way I can help people on different levels!

Interests

Sports: fitness, cycling, running, swimming , hiking with my parents, couchsurfers or my girlfriend Melanie: https://www.couchsurfing.com/people/melanievasco, Other: Modeling => always searching for photographers/assignments.
Discovering other cultures, nice cities and beautiful nature is also something that I like very much!
I am petrolhead... I really like cars! I've got a very discrete and pretty fast family car. I can talk about it for hours! But no worries, I only do that with people who like cars too :)

Music, Movies & Books

Television/movies/series:

Top Gear, Wheeler dealers, Fifth Gear,
Highlander (the series),
Breaking Bad,
Saving Private Ryan

Music:

Everything what is not too loud with some rhythm... so music! :D

Books:

No time to read books, got too much work and a girlfriend, but a lovely one!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Giving two begging gipsy kids in Poland some warm food, it was 10 times more then I would give money. They where very happy and hiding for their parents when they ate it... I was almost crying.

WNBR!

Teach, Learn, Share

For 12 years I was a teacher in high school and I still teach/train adults => besides basic computer training I am also training adults to prepare them for the job market. I teach them technical skills and also the right attitude to help them to get a job and to keep that job .
One important thing I learned: people who don't wanna change their mind in any way are dumb people. So if you want to evolve, try to open your mind for new things around you, how hard it sometimes is...

What I Can Share With Hosts

Sharing Couchsurfing experiences, mostly strong stories, really strong stories ;)

Meeting people from other countries and cultures, it makes you humble and it is helping you seeing the world from another perspective.
