planning the Revolution, nibbling mandarins
I love the smell of adventure, so I'll do anything that is dangerous enough, I'm up for any spontanous action you can imagine, and still I love organization. I like climbing up anything from furniture to trees to mountains to church walls (especially at night). But I hate stairs...
I love to walk/drive in big cities at night. I love animals, the bigger the better. I'm a tea junkie. And I can be terribly independent.. ;)
Is that descriptive enough? :D
Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, a martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming 'WOOHOO! What a ride!'
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I do it. I LOVE it. I'm addicted to it.
Started about 7 years ago. I was couchsurfing in Latin America for 7 months, some of the best times of my life! Since then I never stopped surfing, hosting and meeting :)
visited 38 states (16.8%)Create your own visited map of The World or Amsterdam travel guide for Android
Traveling, what else?? ;) I guess I do travel a lot :D
As you can see, I've been always into languages ;).
I can spend whole nights on discussions of political systems (socialism, communism, anarchism..), on equality of opportunity in a society, etc...
Martial arts: Kendo, Iaido, Shaolin Kempo, Capoeira.
I'm a cinema fanatic, I go to the movies as often as I can. I've been working in theater for quite a while, so if you're into talking about such things - you're welcome... :)
And my biggest love ever: Photography. It's not a rare one though ;)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
* Taiga. Endless woods, lakes and rivers, with no civilization around for hundreds of kilometers
* got lost at night in the Sahara desert - alone with my brother, my camera and a bottle of Pepsi :D
* Parisian catacombs - wandering around the whole night with 2 friends and no maps.
* Arrived at 10pm in Shanghai, totally sick with some unknown disease, I wandered alone the whole night through this megapolis.
China itself is something incredible if you take a step aside from the usual touristic routes. I did.
