I once heard, when building up a character what would be the most trusthworthy: the physical description, others' perception or the actions? They say that actions. Personally, I trust more verbs than nouns, so I'd better give you some of "my" verbs: travel, think, write, dance; hike, draw, chat, write; teach, run, swim, write...
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Memorable: really nice talks. You feel re-linked: there's a lot of echoes everywhere, anywhere. Nice way to get to know more about yourself and others; yourself in others.
Just live, sein lassen, live and let live. My time is the most valuable thing I've got so I try to fill it in with all the verbs my heart asks me to use at the very moment.
I enjoy being by myself, but I do like too, to share the moment with another free spirit, or, if I am strong enough to help if they are in need.
Love nature: the deep blue sea, forests, deserts, mountains; caves, dunes, mountains; the deep blue sea, caves, mountains.
Love culture: art, philosophy, literature, history, science, landscape architecture, agriculture, astronomy.

Teach, Learn, Share

The "unknown" would say? You can learn something from everybody.
