About Me

Update 3/2017: CS now discriminates those who for some reason have no possibility to host - or don't want to pay (for "verification"). This contradicts all the best traditions of hospitality exchange. To oppose this discrimination I will not hosts CSers who payed for verification. Anyway you can find a non-discriminating Website for hospitality exchange if you search for "Be Welcome". Please note, that I don't leave references anymore on CS and I ask my guests to leave references on my BW profile, only.

Since CouchSurfing went commercial, they changed the website many times, now (Nov. 2014) they even changed our private profiles. I prefer democratic, i.e. community orientated approaches and do find them on bewelcome.org.

CURRENT MISSION

Moving to BeWelcome because C$ wants to sell our data, photos, directions, log-in-data, everything

ABOUT ME

Please note if you feel offended by my profile, because you have the impression it contains commercial spam: Everything in my profile that is related to other websites is related to ***non-commercial*** sites. So, no commercial spam at all. This is also important for those in CS who believe that censorship under the pretext of deleting commercial spam is a way of solving the problems CS faces after going commercial. The fact that I criticise CS's policy and included links to non-commercial websites is NOT a violation of CS's terms of use. If you are not sure about that, please feel free to re-read them.

Due to the new privacy policy that grants CS all the power to freely appropriate, manipulate and sell our personal data and images, nearly all my personal information has been deleted. Please contact me through a personal message including your e-mail for more personal info. I apologise for the inconvenience.

I prefer non-profit networks like BeWelcome! (This is not an appeal to leave C$! You see, I'm still here, too!)

The former CS non-profit organization has become a for-profit corporation and became a money-making machine for the personal enrichment of its owners. I don't like this policy. For more information about these questions click here. Where? Well, CS changed my profile and the link is gone.

If you would like to be my guest, please register on BeWelcome (my favourite non-profit hospitality network) and send me a request from there. But of course you also can send a couch request from CS.

You can click here (where? Well, again: gone!), register, copy your profile information from CS to your BeWelcome profile, locate my profile there under the same username and send me your request with the planned arrival and departure dates and time. Be welcome!

Oh, and don't believe the "last login" thing! It's nonsense and doesn't show where I really am. It just shows, I *am*. :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

CouchSurfing was amazing. But than it was stolen from those who built it and who contributed by voluntary work and donations. Another amazing thing is BeWelome: It's democratic, not a company/corporation. It's run by volunteers, not by paid staff that even dosn't have a profile on the platform they are working for (check out the new people in charge with CS!). It's transparent, the site does not contain tracking software, like the CS site.

Teach, Learn, Share

What so ever.
