About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Try to live the example set by my creator... Which I am failing at, but maybe one day I will remember to see people through His eyes.

ABOUT ME

Enjoy good food, beer, friends, late night chats, hard work and late night strolls.

PHILOSOPHY

Try to enjoy and value something in everyone and everything when I remember.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I helped a friend entertain some people. Always fun to get to know other people's point of view. I like the cultural exchange of it.

Has since hosted many people and really enjoy the cultural exchange and different world views.

Music, Movies, and Books

I'm a bit disgusted with most big budget movies lately. Enjoy alternative, rock, pop, country, softer metal, funk and most anything if I am in the right mood. I mostly read text books (economics, philosophy, programming, physics, history, etc) when I read, with the occasional fantasy or scifi book.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Anything with my kids
Traveling Europe and the US
Sit around a huge campfire with the sun setting in the bushveld
Encountered Jesus and were not only freed by him, but were given the gift of relationship, amazing peace and fellowship.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Food, conversation and some tips on our area. A garden full of vegetables and chickens and hopefully a BBQ.
Our house is a bit of an overly busy place and there are different people staying over at different times... Please try to send requests longer ahead of time if possible, weekends work better than weekdays as my mother in law stays in our spare room weekdays.
I try to answer all requests quickly but sometimes I miss the email.
Basically if you request Fridays and/or Saturdays I will have a better chance of hosting you.

Countries I’ve Visited

Australia, Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Singapore, Slovenia, Spain, Thailand, United Kingdom, United States
