Why I'm on Couchsurfing


mainly hosting so far as I don't have much holiday time, unfortunately


I have been hosting since about June 2012 and have hosted about twenty times so far, in groups of 1-3, so all together maybe 30 people. I have not been surfing myself so far, but hope to try it soon.


I love fantasy books and films, detective novels, figurative art, home deocration, gardening. I like to collect sculptures and paintings, and have dabbled a bit myself at both but with no recognizable success so far ;-) I have written 2 fantasy novels together with a friend, which both have turned out about as good as my paintings. As for sports, I do fencing at our local club and try to attend our weekly trainings regularly but on a purely non-professional level. As probably everybody on this website I love travelling and recently have fallen in love with Japan and am currently planning my third visit.

Music, Movies & Books

loads, I will fill that in later on, I think
