About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Spending a three-months vacation in Europe.

ABOUT ME

I smile a lot, and I love to make people laugh. Once in a while, I throw myself on the road to slow down my thoughts, and regain some inner peace. Which sometimes also results in an overwhelming excitement & inspiration from people met.

During the regular days, I swim, used to do lots of cycling and running. In the past I rode a motorcycle all around Europe. I love dancing with women, and also enjoy modern dance.

I value highly time spent with closest friends, and when living and traveling I try to make connections that stay long term, and can bring us together in the future.

PHILOSOPHY

I'm an optimist-realist at heart. With closest friends around, my child-like cheerful soul comes out, and I love being able to make people laugh. And, in contrast, I also enjoy a glass of wine and a deep conversation ;-)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I meet people in the cities, and also organize and participate in trips and meetups during my travels. I'm still awaiting for my first real 'couch' experience ;-) I'm really excited, as I have a couple of close friends, who've shared so much amazing experiences about CouchSurfing.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've meet a good few treavellers. I have a few close friends who are regulars. I organized a few days of a road trip. I've been to a couple of meetings in Spain and in San Francisco.

Teach, Learn, Share

I've lived in several countries in Europe, and most recently in San Francisco. Most recently I've traveled through Ukraine. It's great to observe how depending on the pace of life, people have different values in their lives, and how different joys they get from social interactions.
