Hosting weekly CS Meetup in Bonn, Germany...
I host the Mittwoch/Wednesday CS Meetup in Bonn every Wednesday at 7:30pm, currently at..... The Quiet Man Pub.
Please check the Bonn Couchsurfers' Facebook page for events & updates.... https://www.facebook.com/groups/387702954772055/events/
I'm currently building a startup company and planning to move to Southern Africa, most likely Namibia during the later part of 2015. And now [31 Aug] I am only 2 weeks away from being in Namibia! Yaaaahooooooo!!! :)
3 months traveling through Eastern & Central Europe, with a follow-up mission of another month in Bulgaria (Aug 2014 -Jan 2015).
What I think about CS ... I LOVE IT!

If I have contacted you, either to Host or just meet, it is because I value more getting to know someone who lives where I am traveling, not just see another city, castle, church or mosque and checking off a place on some list.
I have zero expectations for you to give me anything more than you want or feel comfortable sharing with me. I am not looking for a "tour guide" to show me everything in a city in 4 hours, someone to feed me, someone to watch over me as a child. I am very easy going in person... much different than how I express things in writting.
I enjoy answering your questions (honestly) about the USA as opposed to what you see in Hollywood movies or read in the newspapers. I also enjoy asking people questions about "The Real Life" in their country. With history as a footnote, I appreciate understanding the reasons why something is happening now or why people think as though they do. It is not for me to judge, only for me to better understand this world we live in. :)
Blah, blah, blah.... I've lived a very fortunate life, actively choosing simplicity (& travel experiences) over The American Dream. It has been both good and bad, but I wouldn't trade it for anything... It is the life I have made. :)
Bonn, Germany is home since 2017.
Before that.... New York (upstate); (tried Namibia in Southern Africa); Denver, Colorado (although DIA was a second home - always traveling for work or fun); Portland, Oregon; Lake Tahoe, California; Colorado (everywhere on 4-wheels); California (the Bay area, San Diego, in the Sierras) ... upstate NY for university & childhood.

Frequently interchanged with... Why Not!™
Coffee or a beer and good conversation is better than seeing any "amazing" wonder of the world. :)
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
To share my travel experiences with other old dog travelers like myself or those just starting out into the world with the excitement I once had, but not the know-how of doing it right.
Traveling & meeting fellow human beings on this Earth we share.
I'll be honest, I shy away from travelers on a mission to see "everything" in two hours. I've done that my entire life... and it is a bit empty, looking in on the world and people from the outside of a window glass, not truly experiencing a place and its people.
Music, Movies, and Books
A whole (but partial) list is here... http://hansworldtravels.wordpress.com/books-ive-appreciated-loved/
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Too many, but not enough time to do or see all that could be done or seen. :P
Teach, Learn, Share
I share honest perspectives on the world I know and the experiences I have lived. Conversations without judgements. Building people up no matter what their position in life.
Sorry I don't cook, but I find peace in washing dishes! :D
