About Me


To live more and plan less.


I don't like to define myself as this or that type of person as the more I delve into myself the more complex/simple it becomes. However, If I have to describe myself, it would be meditating transcendental nerd with a dash of chocoholicism!!


Philosophy gets in the way of pure experience. Religion gets in the way of Spirit. Nationalism gets in the way of Humanity.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Sharing this idea with all.


Have Surfed in Delhi, India and Germany; Frieburg, Heidelberg and Marburg. All great experiences, nothing but positive!!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've been around the world a five times. Lived in monasterys, met the Dalai Lama, Slept in caves with Sadhu's in India. Done over 3000 scuba dives. Done 6 Vipassana courses, last one 21 days. Seeing the stars out at sea miles from nowhere. Teach diving to a legless girl (legless, not drunk!) Built a time machine and went back 6ooo years to see if the creationist were right (that man and dinosaurs coexisted) and they were wrong, I did however meet Cornilius and Zira from "planet of the apes". (maybe the last thing was an exageration!)I also had my face taken apart and reconstructed, looked like a baboon for a year and now all is good (see xray, in my photos)

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm not a teacher but I can help with yoga and meditation.

I'm a good cook and can show you how to make the best chocolate mousse.
