About Me

CURRENT MISSION

enjoy life

ABOUT ME

I am Edward (not that one from Twilight...)

At first i am often shy with new people and i always try to be polite. But the more time i spend with people and the more we know, the more people know i am quite easy-going, joking and talkative.

i have been an exchange student in France and i am interested in meeting people from all cultures. I am especially interested in chinese and japanese culture.

PHILOSOPHY

Enjoying life! or: Life is too important to be taken seriously

and

Albert Camus: A long life is not indication for a good life. It is possible to have a long life, but living like a dead. Living short, but intensively, and doing more experiences can be better than a long life.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I am an uncomplicated surfer when i surf at your place: I leave in the morning and come back in the evening :)

There is no problem if you have no time to show me around :) You offer me a place to stay, so that's even more i can expect :)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

i am a beginner, but all my couchsurfing and couchsurfing activity experiences have been positive: so i want to continue couchsurfing :)

Poitiers: Maxime Tranchand
Paris: Chenxiao Zhu
London: Ye Love
Lyon: Magali Menuel
Kyoto (Japan): Fumiyuki Shimokado

Interests

learning foreign languages, because languages are the entrance to cultures, people and travelling experiences:

i love meeting and talking to people from different cultures, and tasting traditional food :)

Music, Movies & Books

i love exceptional, non-hollywood and non-commercial movies, which are not too well known and have a strong message: for exemple Korean films by Kim Ki Duk ("Time/Sigan", "Breath/Sum", "Samaria", "3-Iron", and of course: "Spring, Sommer, Fall, Winter...and Spring") and Hongkongese films by Wang Jia Wei ("2046", "Chungking Express"). I would like to know more Japanese Films, but I do not know any.

i am not fixed on a sort of music, i listen to all kind of songs

One Amazing Thing I've Done

well, an amazing thing is that i survived and rehabilitated myself completely after been hit by truck when i was seven years old...
the only damage, that i keep, is a barely visible scar on the side of my head...

well, neither something i wanted to do nor something i can recommend... amazing is what medecine or what my "will" to live achieved :)

Teach, Learn, Share

i always offer to my hosts, if they have time to spend with me, to cook a german dish :) Every time my hosts had time and every time it could be arranged, everyone was happy and so stuffed, we could not move anymore haha I like to cook a lot (typically german!), so that no one stays hungry

I am interested in learning Japanese!!!
i could teach in return some German or French
(i want to become a French teacher) or i can tell about life and culture in Germany

Countries I've Visited

Belgium, China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Spain, Switzerland, United Kingdom

Countries I've Lived In

France, Germany, Japan
