About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Finish my tasks at home to have time and money to travel

ABOUT ME

Openminded, friendly, helpful, curious, but overworked at the moment.

Actually a bit atheistic (just learned from wikipedia, I should call myself ignostic, to be excact), but nonetheless quite interested in Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, Sufism, Islam, Sikhism. Not smoking, no alcohol, except trying local drinks on travels, like chang in the himalayas.

Guess I'm a reincarnated Indian ;-)

I live alone in my house.

PHILOSOPHY

Anicca :-) For those who are not familiar with the Teachings of Buddha, it means, everything will pass, pleasure and pain.

I'm vegetarian, cause I don't want animals to be killed.

A hug a day keeps the doctor away. And two are better then one - and so on :-)

For those who understand german, there is a friendly cuddle party group here at bremen ahve a look under http://www.kuschelzeit-bremen.de, it really makes feel you good :-)

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

visited 37 states (16.4%)Create your own visited map of The World or Brazil travel guide for Android Hosting and being hosted. Spreading friendship and love.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Hosted 3 young friendly climbers form lithuania, unfortunatly I had to work too much. And yes, Andrius and Asta, still hosting his glasses ;-)

The last experiences in India where a bit disappointing. I asked quite a few people on the trip to India, if they would like to host or just talk but the majority even didn't reply. My enthusiasm about couchsurfing has deeply decreased.

Interests

Travelling to enrich my and maybe also other peoples mind and life.

Dancing to trad folk tunes. Bal Folk as well as Mazurka, Schottishe, Rheinlender, Bourrée, Hambo etc.

Playing flute and digeridoo

Trekking in the Himalaya, climbing on via ferrate.

Playing games, but not for money.

EATING, yes I'm fond of learning about new food. Thats why I'm almost 90 kg by just 1.86 ;-)

Used to play chess semiprofessional, but that was 15 years ago.

Ghandi, Shortcut to Nirvana (Kumbh Mela), Broken Silence, Documentaries, Bollywood, Blues Brothers

Brandnew Shortbus, which I saw in another CS-profile, nice movie.

Just found live kirtans from the golden temple at Amritsar, so good to hear this from one of the most spiritual places for me: http://new.sgpc.net/

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Arriving at 2:30 at hyderabad the day before the marriage of my friend Ravi, falling asleep at 4, and being shocked up by some really loud carnatic music from the marriage band, being afraid I missed everything and then realizing it just had started at 6, uff. I love carnatic music since then :-)

Finally arriving on top of Gollab Kangri (close to Leh, Ladakh, about 6km high) and finding a huge mountain crystal on my way back.

The golden temple in Amritsar is such a spiritual place and very romantic at sunset, when hundreds of small bird gather on a tree to sleep with the chanting of Guru Granth Sahib in the background.

My dad had a heart attack in the beginning of 2009, was unconcious for 6 weeks and is now alive again almost as before.

Dancing at the Surajkund crafts Mela with rajasthani dancers and dilliwallahs to driving rajasthani music. People and me likedit a lot.

And, yes, this: (Well this is a link to click on) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tYjg58_j3zc :-)
