For COUCHSURFING NEWBIES: take the time to read my profile and tell me why you think we will be friends. Also if you have never hosted, please tell me why (because i am new on CS is not an sufficient answer to this question). https://support.couchsurfing.org/hc/en-us/articles/200640010-How-do-I-write-a-good-couch-request
- Usually i am quite easy to get along with.
- I can be shy and awkward at times, but if I hit it off with a person I can open up very quickly.
- I usually have strong opinions, but I am very fond of talking to people, who can show me a different perspective.
- I love drinking beer in cheap and comfortable pubs, playing boardgames and dancing passionatly to music I can sing along with (I feel to old to pretend to like loud electronic music).
- I like history, and I can tell you about some of the bizarrer parts of Austrian history.
- I like surrelism and everything that kind of falls out of the usual. There is a lot of beauty in ugly things.
- My three rats are kinda smelly, but they are polite and cute (except Antti, he is a psycho... still pretty cute though)
SURFING WITH ME:
When I have time I am happy to show you arround. But since I am doing a second masters degree and i am working most of the time, i can be pretty busy. So it could happen that I will provide you with information what to see, but I won't accompany you. If that is fine for you, go ahead and write a request :).
