About Me

Rather than describing myself I'll kindly refer you to the references :-)

If you're requesting a couch, please note that I can only host through CS on weekends (Friday to Sunday). If you would like to stay during the week or for more than two nights please check out my Airbnb listing instead at:

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

I started hosting people during the last few months of my time in Malta, in 2009. After departing from Malta, I surfed couches in Madrid, Barcelona, Phuket, New York and Austin. The friendly surfers in Austin recommended me to cut short my 3-month trip in the USA and head to Mexico instead. The first city I landed in - Cancun - was so much fun that I decided to stay for a year to learn Spanish. That one year turned into several :-)

Interests

I'm currently into gymnastics, cross-fit, squash, muay thai, snowboarding, most water sports, travel and in general trying anything at least once (as long as it won't kill me).

Music, Movies & Books

I prefer comedy movies but I don't watch them very often. Series are more my thing. I like many different kinds of music, depending on my mood. Regarding books, I have to admit that I never read any fiction but I do have books about biology and other non-fiction. I'm really interested in how humans work, physiologically and psychologically speaking :)

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I'd have to say the best travel experience in my life was a trip to China with 10 good friends; we rented a crappy basement room in a hotel in Beijing for about $1 per night which had fungus on the walls and water dripping from the ceiling. Then in Shanghai we had a huge serviced apartment on the 30th floor of some luxurious building. Quite the contrast, as is often the case in China.

Teach, Learn, Share

I have a very long to-do list when it comes to learning things, including surfing, dancing (from ballroom to breakdance), flying a plane, diving, etc. I hope I live long enough to finish my list. :-)

What I Can Share With Hosts

A comfortable place to stay and hopefully an amazing experience.
