COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I couchsurfed and hosted a lot (but through an other organisation: HC) when I was traveling around Europa for my thesis and postdocs. The opportunities are now becoming scarce :(

Interests

mathematics, travel, music, history, football, role playing games. When travelling, I especially like to understand how and why things are changing.
