About Me

I'm close-minded and hardgoing. And I really hate to travel.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

It's fun getting to know new people. Hang out, share stories. But I get a lot of requests, so I made two fishes for you to swim by:

- You don’t have to bring any gifts, or food, or liqueur from your country, or whatever. Your company is enough!

- You really don’t need to love the same books, or movies, or music that I do. Indifference ain't good, but differences can be.

I also work a straight office job in the weekdays, and an annoyingly tight schedule at times too. So you have to be self sufficient. I probably won't be able to show you around town and stuff, but we can hang out in the evenings.

Music, Movies, and Books

Amazing books: Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas, The Unbearable Lightness of Being, On The Road, The Catcher in the Rye, The Bell Jar, The Road

Favorite movies: La grande bellezza, The Life Aquatic, The Big Lebowski, Boyhood, Mommy, Kikujiros Summer, all early Tarantino movies, and old stuff like The Godfather, Star Wars and Sergio Leones' westerns.

Any kind of music, but keep it mellow.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

When I was fifteen I swam in the ocean at night and the water was filled with bioluminescence. It felt like swimming in the cosmos.
