CS is one of the best things I've ever done! I started using it after getting disappointed at the vibes in chinese hostels, and after getting hosted a few times opened up my spare room to guests. Now I host as much as I can.
I work in high frequency trading. But because there must be more to life than shuffling around money with computers, I try to balance out my work with as much travel as possible. So you’ll find me on a plane or train about every second weekend to somewhere new.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Because people are the best part of the journey
Wandering and exploring. Good food. Photography. Books.
I’m a history buff and like knowing about the places I visit. It helps me put the world into context. I like to think that everyone I meet can help me get one step closer to the bigger picture.
When I'm not working, travelling or hosting I like to spend my time exercising and reading.
- working out
- outdoor activities
