About Me

CURRENT MISSION

I like getting around, meet new people and old friends.
I think that the thing that you have not experienced, is the thing you will miss the most.

ABOUT ME

I like mountains, lakes and the sea. I love good food despite being a lazy cook; not very patient. I'm patient in other things though, I can spend hours trying to throw a fork into a dartboard from a respectable distance, balance various things on another or fix a broken tv. But the moment that I'm really happy is when I'm somewhere out there and the wind is blowing in my face.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

The best way to get to know a place is get to know people from there. You don't necessarily need couchsurfing for that, but - why not?

Interests

making music, programming, experiments with electronics, sound and visuals, snowboarding - lately surfing and climbing as well

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

It's not something I really did myself, but I was amazed by a tree when I was fourteen and I'll never forget any little detail or scratch on its bark. It was a regular tree across a regular street, and I was looking at it through a regular window. The amazing thing was that I could see it properly. The thing is, I wore glasses for the first time, and it amazed me how many leaves this tree had. That every tree has these. And that all leaves were separate from each other and crisp sharp and waving in the wind. I realised that details of the world do not fade away in a blurry mist after twenty meters. It was incredible, one of the most amazing things I ever saw. Not sure if it was worth fourteen years of bad vision and bone fractures ( due to my lack of perception I developed a kamikaze-style in action sports ), but it definitely was an insane revelation that I'll never forget.

Teach, Learn, Share

If you live in the mountains I could teach you snowboarding, but chances are I should rather learn from you then.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Being welcome again, when I leave. At least that's what I hope ;-D
