About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To meet nice couchsurfers: both where I live and while traveling :-)

ABOUT ME

All about me? Isn't this question a bit ambitious? I am curious (not in the sense of being nosy, no, no) - I like to learn and try out all kinds of new things all the time. I like personal freedom: in all the senses the word has. I would like to visit all countries and every single place in the world, but probably my life is too short, and unfortunately one also has to earn a living, which imposes its own restrictions. I love outdoor activities: hiking, biking, walking, etc. I have many more, both good and bad traits of character ...

PHILOSOPHY

Don't worry, be happy! (Err ... I'm not very good at following it, but I keep trying ...)

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Interests

All the usual interests listed in most of the profiles. I keep discovering new things that I'm interested in ...

Music, Movies & Books

I really liked "Vicky, Christina, Barcelona" that I saw relatively recently (and the soundtrack!!!). Some years ago I saw "Frida" (and its soundtrack!!!), which I watched several times (very uncharacteristic of me). I love all kinds of music that has some impact on me, independent of the style. I don't really like jazz, sorry, I guess that's an aqcuired taste - maybe one day ...

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I hiked up to Etna and saw the lava (amazing beyond words) and the smoke and stones being thrown out of the craters, and the noise they made!!! Recently I went to Norway and was overwhelmed by the beauty of the fjords and the colour of the sea ...

Teach, Learn, Share

Every now and then I discover that I have something to teach to other people, but it really depends on the person. I like learning new things all the time. I am quite a freak as far as learning languages goes. I would also like to become a very good programmer (although this sounds pretty nerdy) - since this might give me the personal freedom, I desire so much - you can program in any part of the world ...
