About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Becoming a pirate

ABOUT ME

I always have a hard time distinguishing green from brown but I do have a pretty good memory. I don't need much, except I could never get rid of my books. I still don't have my driving licence, it has been on my to-do-list for ages now. I like to sit at the bar and watch but I don't really speak much myself unless people ask. When I get the blues, I dance, just as Goethe's Lotte, and it really helps most of the time. When I was a kid, I wanted to become a pirate and I kind of still want to be one (plus, I don't need a driving licence for that).

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Well, there's always lots of people at our place (friends, friends of friends, friends of people I still don't know). So, yeah, we host a lot of people, not necessarily via CS though.
