About Me

People say about me that I'm friendly, multilingual, insightful, trusty and hospitable. I love other countries and nations and grew up voyaging. - Feel free to contact me at all times and we will get on for sure. And call me Viktor to procure your attention ... ;-)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I am active on CS since many years. Some of the various stuff I did/do was:
• contributing to CS Wiki, creating logos for CS, welcoming newbies
• group moderation, e.g. in Chemnitz* (FRG) and Minsk (BY)
• organizing CS events/gatherings, being part of CS team
• helping and beeing a contact person for consulting
• surfing, moderating, hosting, guiding tours

Interests

Actually it's possible to get me into almost everything. New people and experiences fascinate me. For it I have visited over 40 countries, been to almost 40 US states and hitch-hiked over 20.000 km. If you like to know more about my adventures just ask ...

Especially CS lovers of music might know about my forefather:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hans_Fährmann (1860-1940)

That‘s why my complete first name is Hans Viktor Alexis.
