About Me

I am studying in Urbino, Italy until February before I go to morocco for a month in march and then 3 months in spain. I am trying to do as much as possible while I am here, so I go out regularly and travel to nearby cities or places to go hiking.
I am taking salsa and tango because I suck at dancing, but would like to improve. I want to become more flexible with yoga.


Im an Open book. I am a bit quiet, I don't drink or smoke. I really enjoy meeting interesting people and just doing nothing or go on an epic adventure.
At home I like to surf as much as I can and which I am slowly trying to restore a1967 vw variant.

Estoy aprendiendo español entonces sería bien hablar mas con alguien.


im indecissive so thats a hard one. openish, try to be objective and flexible.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

i have couch surfed on three different continents, hosted in Australia and Japan. if i can give any advice about the area or help out id love to, plus providing a small place to chill with me.

I have one rule for myself, that is I don't try to have sex with my couchsurfers or my hosts. I feel this is important because of the vulnerable nature of the situation, and I'm a man. So I won't make any moves on you, unless you consider charm and charisma to be a move ;) I must also say that only if both of us were interested and it was very obvious would I allow something to happen. This rule is not normal for couchsurfing because it means I might miss out on great opportunities, but I feel it is respectful, especially to women.


lived and stayed with many interesting and fun people from all over.


many to say the least. i love to free dive, sail, kite surf, SURF, fly gliders , eat (swiss ) CHOCOLATE and explore.
becoming obsessed with news and politics... no!!!

Music, Movies, and Books

currently reading atmosphere of hope by tim flannery. love the j's (its a radio station). Triple j is all I listen to. big fan of movies.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

young endeavour youth sceme. hanging on to the strut of a plane at 4000 feet legs dangling in the air(i did have a parachute). getting nitrogen narcosis at 45m on a wreck dive in vanuato. spending a satuday night with some tango instructors and their friends in mendoza.
being declared lost at see for over a month and returning safe and oblivious to the fact 3 governments were looking for the boat.
this ones embarassing, getting my hand stuck in a train door and needing to stop the train in holland

Teach, Learn, Share

i like to cook interesting food. i want to do more kite surfing. i enjoy teaching/sharing experience in sailing diving and surfing.
I like to draw and sketch so if I might be able to make one of you if I have time.
plus other stuff.
