About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Good wine, nice food and even better conversation

ABOUT ME

What would my friends say? wow, this paragraph will really test your modesty. haha - Ok, well, you have to sell it!

I'm a fun, witty, energetic person, charming, my humility knows no bounds, I'm an amazing dancer and a poet by hart and I live life flamboyantly with a glass of wine in my hand. -Felt good typing that, haha, ok seriously:

I like to laugh and I enjoy meaningful conversations. -though there is a time and place for everything. I like to have fun but ton also spend time with my own thoughts. I love cooking and drinking wine. My friends are a crucial part of life and nobody could ask for a better group of people in their world.

PHILOSOPHY

Your wealth will never be measured in money, but through the people you meet and the friends you make.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Hosting for now, as soon as my bank like me I'll spread my wings!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

None yet, hoping to change that in the future.

Interests

I really enjoy the outdoors. But I like certain extremes. From hunting with my dad; sitting around a camp fire in the middle of nowhere and listening to the old tales to electro parties; drinking tequila with my best mates at a festival and dancing until your legs (and body) refuses to to go any further.

A few random opinions, helicopters are the universal symbol for victory in life, I don't like small dogs, wasps petrify me, I don't understand vegetarians, good coffee is important in life, so is flossing, but most importantly, I only have respect for people who make the effort to spell properly.

Music, Movies & Books

Stieg Larrson's works (Girl with the dragon tatoo) raymond E Feist - the magician, Matthew reilly for action packed pages, Jeffrey Deaver for crime. Though, no Grisham or Pratchett.

Music, from mozart to haezer, black keys to less than jake, fokofpolisiekar to goodluck. I'm really open to that, except dubstep and trance, I mean, i love electro but dub and trance makes no sense to me.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

General stuff would be rock climbing in Sabie, mountain cycling in George and hunting with my dad in the Karoo. But one of my most cherished memories was in when we were touring in Switzerland:

One night our group split up in two segments, boys and girls. Our tour guide (Leader) had a talk to us that night about what it was to be a proper man, it amounted down to respect your family, respect yourself and respect the ladies. So off we went into the Swiss night to steal flowers that we would then later present to the girls. Squashed in a little van we rode off into the suburbs, suddenly we burst out into the streets raiding gardens for flowers, at some some point a Swiss man blocked me, screaming crazily, I guess anger was universal and he truly cherished his roses in my hands. So I did what anyone else would, I ran like hell, all of us did, so after some time hiding in Swiss gardens and our group scattered all about, we made our way back to the camp and gave the ladies some fresh flowers. Always puts a smile on my face thinking about that night.

A second event was when my and my cousin were (was?) in Mexico, we were having a beer on the beach late at night - also to have a sneaky cigarette because our parents would've killed us, anyway, suddenly a pile of sand arose and all these baby turtles made their way to the ocean. It was a small beauty life shared with me.

-to briefly add, that same night we saw a hooded guy walking under a lamp post, pull down his pants and masturbate like his life was about to end - you cannot make this up! I don't know if that's the way they party in Mexico but that's a story altogether for another day. With the sweet comes the sour I guess

Teach, Learn, Share

Love your family, respect yourself, cherish your friends. Respect earns respect. Human connection to me is as simple as that.
