Why I’m on Couchsurfing

when i don't have to study i like to hang out with people in my dorm. i like swimming, snowboarding, gliding, music, video games, reading... of course i like to travel and i try to go on roadtrips as often as i can.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I don't want to get into any sunset descriptions here, so I'll just tell you the animal stories: I played with monkeys, I saw a giant seaturtle poo, I heard a wild orang-utan and saw wild elephants in the jungle, I saw wild kangaroos on christmas morning and saw the birth of an alpaca, I saw giant condors and met a german-speaking parrot in peru, I swam with a wild dolphin for 2 seconds, and I watched baby pandas play.

Teach, Learn, Share

i always want to learn new words in crazy or funny languages. i'm also happy about any chance to improve those languages i have listed as intermediate or beginner years ago and have not spoken for years. please don't laugh at me when i try.

I am also trying to learn how to cook, so if you know something good, please show me.
