To be with positive nurturing people
I am a 40 years old male born in Denmark but spent my entire childhood, adolescent and adult years living in many different countries. I don't have any emotional ties to any particular culture or nation and consider myself just a plain earthling. I have spent most of my life in music; performance, composing and education but I am also interested in ecology, spirituality and holistic health.
Philosophical keywords: Exchange, Honesty, Free of negativity, Open, Alert. Focusing on earth things and not world things. Not getting carried away with stress and negativity. Staying fresh and not stagnant.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
