About Me

CURRENT MISSION

I am traveling to Argentina to improve my Spanish, discover a new culture, have fun, and maybe get some new ideas.

ABOUT ME

Thus far, I have not been so much of a traveler but rather a mover. I am living in Canada, which is my 6th country I believe. I have got Europe and North America covered. Now it is time for me to explore South America a bit.
I am leading an interesting double-life, in the sense that my career building and serious side does not really coincide with my wacky and at times silly private endeavours. I on track of becoming a lawyer in couple of years but let's not talk about that, because when I am not studying, I am mostly outside. I play a lot of volleyball (in Austria we call it "beachn"), attend various concerts and music festivals, and prepare dinners with some of my bestest friends. When I say concerts. The range quite wide, from deep-house, dubstep to classical orchestra and operas.
My friends are very important to me. I am proud to say that I have quite a few of them, and most of them think I quite highly of me (I would think). I have core friend group of people with very different backgrounds about whom I am very proud of and would go for great lengths to contribute to their happiness.
Whie my life in Montreal is quite colourful and always full of activity, whether this is a roof party, concert, sport, hanging out by the mountain (there is one little mountain in the middle of Montreal, but its sort of cool), I always like to go back to Europe and visit my parents. They are lovely. I don't see them very often but they give me a lot of stability and comfort.

PHILOSOPHY

I am gonna have to make this up on the spot. Maybe: Try to enjoy all the colours and flavours of life but stay on your designated path not to lose touch with your personal reality.

I am not sure what that means.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I would like explore some couches of some lovely people in Argentina and have similar experiences that some travellers did, when they came around to Montreal last year.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have never been couch surfing at someone's place that I didn't even remotely know. One time, my best friend and I spent a week in Paris in maid's room. We had no key, so we had to climb the window every time we needed to get in. This was at times difficult when coming back home at 4 in the morning in pouring rain...

Interests

I am interested in understanding new cultures, how they react interact, and generally just get to know people. I also very much enjoy learning languages (working on Spanish at the moment). I like sports, well soccer, tennis, volleyball mostly, I enjoy beat poetry, and economic country reports; swimming in lakes and energy law; German Weissbier and discussing the merit of literature in terms of functionality; hitchhiking across Canada and Manhatten; In other words, I think my spectrum of interests is very brought. I am generally quite easy going, I hope.

Music, Movies, and Books

I really like movies that bring out culture of the place where they have been directed or are just super cool.

example of former: Goodbye Lenin, Pan's Labyrinth
example of latter: Django Unchained! (super cool film)

Books: I can appreciate anything from Kant to Dostoyevsky but lately have been more stuck with the country reports..

Music: I am all over. I really like certain electronic music but I am also all about classical, folk, Germnan Rock,... the list is infinite. I am ready to learn from others.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

One time I was at the Music Festival in Slovakia. The group playing, Magnetic Man, which is fairly heavy dubstep, made the entire audience sit down on the lawn at the beginning of the concert. This was quite incredibly granted that most people were somewhat intoxicated and ready jump and dance. The amazing part about this anecdote is power of music as a concept. At the festival, there are people from many different countries, with various backgrounds and opinions; however, through music they stand an act as a united front. Suddenly, for a moment there is no difference between their nationality, ethnicity, sexual orientation, political opininon, and all act together as a bunch of humans enjoying the same song.

A more classic answer would be the Austrian Kalkalpen (Alps) amazing views and very powerful nature

Teach, Learn, Share

My skills that I could pass on are mostly academic, but I think I am fun loving and happy to explore, which often times is enough for a great experience I find.
I know a bunch about the differences in water and what seeds to eat to be healthy hehe
