About Me

I believe in kindness; research sustainable well-being; meditate; and do random things with random people (and my girlfriend ofc :)) such as different kinds of sports; adventures; VR gaming; and watching South Korean series among others.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I like the ideology behind it-connecting people over borders of different kinds without profit-seeking-and also like the possibility of travelling more affordably while getting to know places and meeting people. I'd also like to try hosting to offer the possibility to others though I am not sure if my facilities for the moment allow it well.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I'm nearly finished with my PhD (it's been difficult)! :o

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm constantly learning more about the depth of the change of the world

What I Can Share with Hosts

Potential for discussions on widely ranging topics (some better and some less researched); sports exercises based on capoeira; some dance instructions; company for (nearly) any sports or adventures; intro to different kinds of meditation styles; sea shanties (seaman songs from old times); company for singing; and can play some hand drums for jam sessions a bit :)
