Join Couchsurfing to see kiwiflave’s full profile.
Easy-going and well-travelled, curious to get to know you and your story. I like being out and about, especially in nature - hiking, cycling, running. Pescatarian (no meat, fish ok). Enjoy a glass of wine or beer after a good day's work..
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I used to host and surf quite a bit, now mostly enjoy meeting other members and having a good time together. Also on BeWelcome.org.

Music, Movies, and Books
I listen to piano, chello or guitar background music almost all the time (while working), and enjoy mostly classical music, jazz, bossa nova etc. Dance, trance and techno in earlier years. Hip hop if the mood is right..
Books: historic novels or anything which entertains and informs. (Auto)biographies can also be fascinating - I wish I had more time for reading..
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Snorkeling next to turtles on Lady Elliot Island, Great Barrier Reef in Queensland, Australia: amazing.
World's highest bungee jump and Skydiving in New Zealand (back in the wild days).
Completing three years of full-time doctoral study. Then, building a now successful web business from scratch (took another three years..)
Teach, Learn, Share
I can tell you about the places I've lived so far, especially New Zealand and Catalonia (Spain). Germany of course (that's where I grew up).
What I Can Share with Hosts
A smile, a laugh, a bottle of wine with dinner, a good conversation, my "green thumb" around the garden, stories.. play with kids!
