About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Get a life.

ABOUT ME

Here are some words that describe me (in random order): perfectionist (sometimes overly), visionary, vegetarian, humanist, environmentalist, trustworthy, honest, adaptable, spiritual, intellectual, night owl, sporty (road cycling, swimming, running) with good endurance, adventurous, broad-minded, generous at heart, moral, world citizen, liberal, believer in justice, like taking it slow, very thrifty, stubborn, very calm, very rational but intuitive when needed, generally healthy, clean, orderly, like to make lasting and mutually beneficial friendships with likeminded people of different genders, races, religions, sexual orientations, nationalities, etc.

PHILOSOPHY

What a deep question to post here... Simply put, I think everybody is here on this small planet to learn and hopefully evolve to become a better soul. I believe that sooner or later, there is justice for everyone, although it may come in different forms. Therefore, that should be an (selfish) incentive to do good. Despite the imperfections of the current world order (or disorder), we should collectively strive to achieve a just, balanced and harmonious world by using the tools currently at our disposition to transform it as peacefully as possible. Isn't that in everybody's spiritual interest?

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I hope to meet likeminded CSers for a 'drink' or visiting nearby attractions together. I may also be able to host in the future. Meeting fellow members abroad helps to learn about the places I visit from a local perspective and build friendships. I hope my exchanges with other members can be mutually beneficial. I think that's the spirit of this project.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I had memorable encounters at CS gatherings, hosting, surfing and meeting other members for a 'drink'. It can be fun and rewarding to spend time together travelling in the surroundings, cooking or conversing depending on the situation. Other times, it's just for a place to slack off and get a good night sleep.

Interests

diplomacy, geopolitics, Taiwan politics, public international law, abnormal nation-states, human rights, environmental protection, aviation, swimming, running, road cycling, hang gliding, travel, (comparative) religious studies, spiritual science (anthroposophy, out-of-body experiences, mediumship, instrumental transcommunication), computers and internet (VoIP), history, linguistics, sleeping
