About Me

CURRENT MISSION

gather experiences, help others

ABOUT ME

I like foreign people, sports, languages, travelling, music, cooking, gardening and books (I have quite a large collection which comes from all around places I visited :)) We have some kind of a fitness room in our cellar, so I can do some exercises there watching a good DVD in Spanish or hearing the news in Portuguese or just watching TV5 Monde.

PHILOSOPHY

I think you should try to gather lots of experience and knowledge and then get a good job and have a nice family and host lots of foreign people at your house and travel as much as possible until you are old and grey :)

somewhat difficult to say, I am currently looking at Schopenhauer's answer to this problem, but I am not sure if it can satisfy me

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I live in a small appartement in Aachen, Germany. Here I can host somebody for a few days, but it might be too little space for two or three!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have been to Bologna and Paris in two locations each city. In Brazil we visited the Oktoberfest with other CouchSurfers. I spent a very nice time travelling with a friend of mine in Almeria!

Interests

literature languages cooking people, cultures geography, travelling sports, health music (mostly classical and jazz, sometimes electronic and funk, deepmix.eu) gardening politics, philosophy movies (but not hollywood) theatre, opera

Music, Movies & Books

good movies like tarkowsky, kubrick and so on..

music almost anything, i like classical and sometimes even techno (while driving or jogging or something)

i try to read any classical piece of literature and philosophy

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Maybe my first kiss? The tomatoes behind the house? My grandma? I don't think I can measure things by their amazingness... Everything can be amazing.

Teach, Learn, Share

I could tell you anything I know, which is quite a lot.
