Explore life ... that being in my backyard as well as on the other side of the world ...
I just quit my job to start my own business helping small and medium sized companies with their export. In this way i want to combine the things i love: helping other people succeed, travelling and Couchsurfing :o)
My Fiancé Maria:
She is into Culture, Art, Films and Theology - travelled mostly in Europe so far but we have a plan to visit all of the worlds continents together as soon as possible :)
And we LOOOVE food.
Update Juli 2013: My Fiance is now my WIFE ...weeheee
Update Juli 2015: And she is now the mother of my 1 y.o. Son
Hard one ..... i saw one who cited Mark Twain: Dance like nobody's watching, love like you've never been hurt. Sing like nobody's listening, live like it's heaven on earth.... its a goal - but at times quite hard ....
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I participate by having a couch .....
And .... I am selfproclaimed initiator of the 'World Food Feast'™ concept.... Spontaneus gatherings all over globe where people meet and bring or cook their native food for each other .... Well - atleast we did Bangkok twice and Dubai once - so i guess if you live anywhere else on the globe you need to wait just a little longer ;)
-- Kyiv, Ukraine is now added to the proud capitals of the world which hosted the World food feast !!

Cooking, food, travelling, skiing, golf, books, science ... everything actually ....
Music, Movies, and Books
Nothing and everything .... Currently reading an old Steven Hawking book just now; 'A brief history of time', a japanese and a thai guide book as well as a number of other books .... hmm .. I seem to be developing a bad habit of starting new books before i finish the old one - i guess its says alot about me: a firestarter rather than a finisher .....
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I regularly visit my familys cottage on a small island - and the other night i came there late. It were almost spooky when i looked up: not a light or a city in many miles distance - so all the million of stars really stood out. The milky way were clearly visible ... Woooow ....
