Hey, i am offering a place to stay in lower Austria, near Vienna and Bratislava. Its a great location if you want to visit /travel between Vienna - Bratislava - Hungary and enjoy Austrian countryside. I am near to Austrian airport too.
Please notice, that there is no public transport to cities during night between 23:00 - 05:00, sorry party fans :(
I am living in a town house 35km from Vienna with my dog Thor, 2 cats and 2 snakes.
I do work a lot from home, and i live here alone with pets.. so i am a busy person and i cant show you around.
IMPORTANT: Please only choose my home, if you are ok with it, that i cant show you around, only give you some advices or have some small talk.
I am in general a bit quiet at beginning, but i respect every life style and every kind of person, i am tolerant and no trouble maker, love talking about society, free time activities, pets and wildlife, ancient history and a lot more. I dislike people, who are into racism or intolerance, who are superficial and rude to other beings.
I wont answer requests from males, who have no references yet. Sorry! :/ I also prefer guests, who stay only 1-2 nights as its easier to plan for me. Thanks for your understanding!
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I always loved travelling but I know how expensive it can be and how hard to find some nice places, besides any tourist traps. I am a busy person, i can not hang around with my guests all time (sorry! :( ). I prefer guests, who just want a place to sleep or some friendly advices where to go, so i will be glad to help.
At moment i live alone in a town house, too big for one person, so I am happy if I can share the space and help some traveller.
pc Gaming and nintendo, wild life and nature, pets and terraristic, cooking and restaurants and food from other parts of world, metal and hard rock music, ancient history and mythology, drawing and mangas, movies and anime - i love horror movies!, life style and society here and in other countries, travelling, ..
Music, Movies, and Books
movies: horror, fantasy, psycho, thriller, drama, history, science fiction, manga.. well, nearly all :D I love movies and have a small dvd collection at home :)
music: metal (melodic death, power, viking/pagan, black, metalcore) rock (oldschool, hard rock, folk rock) some alternative, gothic and punk but i love musicals and classic music too
books: fantasy, history, horror.. for example i love Anne Rice books.
Teach, Learn, Share
I studied ancient history, i can tell you a lot about the past in Austria and in general. My town is perfect for people who love ancient history, here is a lot to see.
I am also quite good at cooking, my father is cook and i am working in catering/gastronomy, it would be fun to cook together. I can teach you an Austrian dish or would be glad to learn a dish from your country. I know also many great restaurants in Vienna and Bratislava.
I am pet holder and grew up with animals of an Austrian Zoo, as lion and tiger babies at home, monkeys, reptiles, and so on. When i travelled around world, my focus was on the wild life and I am working for an animal rescue organisation too, who saves dogs from shelters in Slovakia and Hungary. My life was always shared with different pets. I can tell you a lot about animals, pets and wild animals here, help you to choose the right decision when thinking about adopting a pet and so on.
If you are afraid of dogs, cats or snakes, i can softly help you to know them. :) Dont be afraid of choosing my home because of any pets, especially the snakes.. you will see, your guest room is pet free and its not dangerous at all like always told in paranoid newspapers ;D My dog loves everyone and is really friendly!
I would love to meet someone, who is doing pictures, as i would like some nice ones of my dog in nature *-* I am not really good into doing pictures and have no usual camera. So would be great to meet a photographer who could help me out.
What I Can Share with Hosts
There are some rules for your stay with me.. not because i want to bother you, but to make sure, we both have a nice time:
- No smoking in the house.
I have asthma and i live with pets.. we both cant handle smoke. In your room is a balcony and i have a garden, there you will be able to smoke.
- Dont wear shoes inside the house.
In Austria its usual not to wear shoes inside the house to keep it clean.
- Leave the rooms in the same condition you have found it.
Please remember, that i try to offer a clean and comfortable place. Help me to keep it clean in not making additional dirt- so the next guest will be glad.
- If possible, please bring comestics and towels yourself. I just moved and i am not 100% well prepared for every kind of guest. Sure, in case of emergency i try to help you out.
- My house is only suitable for people, who like animals and have no allergies. Anyway, guest room is petfree.
- My room is only suitable for people, who can take the stairs.
Your guest room is on the first floor.
- Respect my privacy as i respect yours.
I wont enter during your stay your sleeping room at any time. I ask you not to enter private rooms too. Of course feel free to hang around in living room or kitchen :D
- Respect the pets i am living with.
Please just shut the door of your room if you dont want them to visit you. My pets are living there, its their home.. dont shut them out in garden or order them down from couch. Dont feed them without asking me. Dont take them at balcony or for a walk. Its the most important point for me, people who would try to hurt them, will be asked to leave.
- I am responsible for my guests in the neighbourhood, please take care to calm your voice between 22:00 - 06:00. If you are into nightlife and used to spend the night clubbing, you could visit Vienna.
- If you travel with child or pet, please take care of them.
My dog is friendly, but very strong.. dont leave your child or pet alone at my house. You are responsible for your child/pet. When i come well along your pet, we might find a solution if you want to leave it at my home during your sightseeing.
- If you use my w-lan internet please dont download any videos.
I will give you the w-lan password after you arrived, when you need it.
- I ask you not to do any pictures of my adress, me or my house outside without asking me. The reason is, I dont want any pictures of me or my adress in public, for example in internet for safety reasons. If you like doing pictures, you will have here a lot possibilities in the village.
- If you want the keys of my home during your stay, please be okay with it to show me an ID card, so I know, who I am giving my keys.
When i cook, i usually invite my guests to join me. Its no problem for me, if you stay one night, to offer you a dinner or a breakfast, coffee or non alcoholic drinks. Please tell me before you arrive, if you would like to eat anything and of course if you live vegan/vegetarian.
I dont live fully vegetarian (but dont eat meat often), but i can handle even vegan life style :D
In general please plan to care yourself for your food during your stay, there is a supermarket nearby- as i can not guaranty, that i will cook for sure every day or have something at home to offer you. Please dont take food out of fridge without asking, would be bad when i plan to cook with it.
If you are interested in cooking together, sure, thats fun :) We can also split grocery bill for longer stay.. and i would love to learn a dish of your country.
Thank you !
