get to know my own backyard
I'm easy going, optimistic and have a healthy sense of humour. I tend to see the best in situations and people.
I love fully immersing myself in different cultures. In my ideal world I'd travel to a new place and stay there for at least a few months!
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I've done a fair amount of 'surfing' in the summer of 2012 while backpacking through Europe after studying for a semester in Sweden. Lately I haven't been too involved in the local CS community but I've been to a few events in Vancouver. Currently in Edmonton for grad school.
Amazing! I have been met with unbelievable hospitality everywhere I've been, and have made great friends along the way.
Experiencing new places like a local, being spontaneous and enjoying the simple things.
I love meeting people from all over the world and learning about different cultures and ways of thought.
I love being out in the nature hiking or whatever. I paint and sketch every now and then. I like playing sports.
Music, Movies, and Books
A Fine Balance, Pillars of the Earth, Harry Potter, LOTR, Murakami etc.
Donnie Darko, Fight Club, Snatch, James Bond, the Planet Earth series, and the list goes on.
Almost all types of music - and I love going to live shows! I have a great respect for musicians.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Walked with elephants in Ghana. Watched shooting stars from the Mecsek hills in Hungary. Hot air ballooned over castle ruins in Burgundy. Valborg in Lund...
