About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Coddiwompling
~ to purposefully travel towards a vague destination.

Living it up in an Amsterdam mansion as a break from traversing Europe and beyond in my van, living a digital knowmad lifestyle.

ABOUT ME

All day I dream, whilst working hard at the doing.

As an entrepeneur I'm continuously focussing on generating added value to the lives of people around me. I work together based on the African ways of Ubuntu and Kgotla.

I love stories with a heritage origin as they continuously inspire me and teach me new things about our values and help me cherish them, pass them on or build upon them.

PHILOSOPHY

Throw your dreams into space like a kite and you do not know what they will bring back to you: a new life, a new friend, a new love, a new country, a new smile...

Enjoying life to the fullest independent of all resources.

Do one thing every day that scares you.

If better is possible, good is not enough.

Say yes first, and then ask why, what and how.

Always be in for a challenge.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Surfing and hosting both are some of my beloved activities. I really enjoy the company of new people and getting to know them.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE
Unfortunately I hadn't heard from CS yet when I was backpacking down under back in '07. I did surf a lot of couches through the indian drums network and phone numbers of friends of friends written on dodgy snippets of torn of paper.

Couchsurfing has overcome me in many ways and forms and there's no one way I prefer, I love them all. Connecting, sharing and caring is what it's about for me.

Music, Movies, and Books

Heaps and heaps but I don't have a list of them. All time favorite is the Darren Shan series and some stories about four elements that I read as a kid but forget the name of.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Waking up at a different place for 9 months when traversing Europe in Waka Morearea - my van.
