About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To make sure my years don't go to waste.

ABOUT ME

I have been told that I am a bit quiet, but I'm very friendly and I get much more sociable, once I get to know people.

Perhaps I am a bit geeky, in view of my interests and doings.

I love learning about the world and grasping the workings of difficult systems. I love actually seeing the world even more, though.

I often find myself thinking philosophical and abstract thoughs. I like my worldview to be ordered and thought out well.

I am very passionate about geology, for some odd reason. Also, mountains!

PHILOSOPHY

"For me, it is far better to grasp the Universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring."
— Carl Sagan

However, I have nothing against other people having more spiritual mindsets. There is beauty to be found in all kinds of belief systems.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I want to travel all over the world and meet all sorts of nice peaople via Couchsurf. Sadly, for monetary reasons my travels will probably be limited to Europe for the near future.

In turn, I'll soon have an apartment of my own, where I'll be able to host people if they want to :) I can even sort of cook porridge!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I am new to this, so none, sadly.

Interests

I love nature very much, and are very interested in traveling, hiking and just being outdoors. Other interests include geology (delicious rock layers), skydiving, origami, science fiction, space technology.
