One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

biked through tokyo with my couchsurfer host during march 11 earthquake (not an amazing experience but a memorable one)
prepared and ate snake stew in thailand
experiencing the process of making a magazine. turning ideas, concepts into an object sold in shops all over the world

Teach, Learn, Share

i want to learn about the culture of the place i am at be it culinary, its superstitions and traditions. so if you've got something to share ill gladly listen (and ill ask a lot of questions with eyes wide open)

i can share stuff about berlin but be warned...i am a very un-german german. also i know london pretty well. and if you are interested in magazines i will gladly talk about to you about those also i make a really loud plopping noise with my mouth...i'll try to teach you that though it is sort of a special skill.

What I Can Share with Hosts

be immersed in my random life here, amazing flatmates, a huge factory like loft, some good advice on what to do i guess.
