I enjoy living, laughing, working together. Doing something useful is awesome. I enjoy sharing meals, interests and passions. Lying in the shadows of an oak tree on a hot summer day is great. I like reading, listening to music, thinking about the meaning of movies and hanging out or going on adventures with friends and strangers.
Life is but a succession of moments, to live everyone is to succeed.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
To host and surf, gather experiences at home and around the world.
I had the opportunity to gather many great couchsurfing experiences a bit about everywhere around the world. Among the most intense were definetely San Francisco and Madagascar! It's always worth the trip ;-)
Hosting was always a refreshing and enriching experience, too. Looking forward to the time when I'll have a couch to offer again!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
One?? There's so many. Life is full of wonderful presents.
New Mexico. The Grand Canyon. Snorkeling. Catamaran sailing in the Indian Ocean. Becoming friends with a teenager with autism spectrum "disorder" - having insight into another way of perceiving this world. Couchsurfing. Seeing my close friends again after a long time. Getting a hug coming right from the heart. Flirting. Getting lost in meditation to the degree that I'm convinced I'm hovering above the floor. Dancing the drum.
