Join Couchsurfing to see Philippus’s full profile. It’s free!
Apparently I have two facial expressions: "Pensive" and "Big Smile". I'm a happy dude – sometimes simple, sometimes complex — with an interest in people and how they function together.
Here's to traveling as a means of self-expansion,
And eating a lot.
And doing outdoorsy things.
And culturing it up.
And broadening the lingo.
And being critical.
And hoping for the best.
And talking to you.
It'll be great.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
To travel, learn and share. I've surfed in Europe, Asia, North America and Africa, none of which would have been possible were it not for CS. I've had many surfers stay at our place in Cape Town too.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
It's the insignificant things that stand out. On the real though, I've seen some spectacular things, and I post the evidence on my blog (commonwealthy.tumblr.com).
Teach, Learn, Share
Speak for yourself.
