About Me


Loosening my chains and finding my travelling mojo


My friends refer to me as an adventurous intellectual.


My personal catch phrase is "You make your own life". Every decision you have ever made (or not made) thus far, every desire you have fostered contributed to where, and what, you are now.

Re-adjust course as often as is necessary.

I realise there is a shit-load of evil in the world, but that it is all rooted in human greed and other imbalances. This is secondary. If the world was such a terrible place, no amount of hope could sustain the survival of the human race thus far.

Balance is the key to a sensical life - simple as that. When people are truly happy, they want to make others happy also!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have hosted a few travelers and shared great experiences. I have yet to couchsurf myself.


Hosted a few couchsurfers from various parts of the world.


I spend as much time as possible outdoors - camping, hiking, motorcycling, running, rock climbing, kayaking, paragliding, tennis...

Love being active.

I have a basic paragliding license and would love to explore horizons in the sport - okay, literally.

Recently started kite-boarding

I play some guitar, and love drumming. Would like to learn to dance ;)
