About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Going nowhere fast and everywhere slow :) (...and smiles)

ABOUT ME

I guess i am kinda okay...at least sometimes...
I am pretty bad at writing about myself:/

I don't feel any need to take pictures at all. I can go months without taking any.
Somehow that makes me a bit odd i guess:)

PHILOSOPHY

If there is an online page that is asking for lots of personal information i don't provide them. The reason might be that i am just to lazy:P

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

mostly meetings/activities. Just a bit surfing and hosting. i am traveling all the time so i don't relay have a place to host.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I had some good, some interesting, some boring and no bad experiences so far. CS brought me into to the poorest villages Paraguay's, to a private rooftop party in Kuala Lumpur's, nice hikes in Rio and hundreds of exactly the same 'where are you from and for how long are you traveling here'-conversations, ...
so it's all right:)

Interests

nothing special. traveling and so
i am thinking about doing some more hiking in the future. I volunteered as a hiking guide in nicaragua and figured out that walking for hours in one direction totally fits my intellect.
started again to play beach volleyball.

Music, Movies & Books

Music:

The last years I listened to music while working so i couldn't get distracted by other things. This might be the reason i am not listing to music in my free time and don't' even have a mp3 collection to speak of.
Depending on mood and location a enjoy different kind of music.
I used to listen to rock/metal when i was younger. I enjoyed the music in latin america a lot. Electronic music is good for clubs etc., but in other circumstances not my favorit. It's kinda the same for pop. Most of hip hop is just silly and annoying, but there are some exceptions.


Movies:

I about never watch movies or TV. Not that there are no good movies, but there so many bad ones (90+% ) that's not worth the risk. I always feel a bit insulted if i watch brain dead bullshit.
Btw. It always hurt if somebody refers to a Hollywood movie while speaking about an historic event or pretty much anything else. Don't do that. I just gonna change the topic to be polite and most likely you won't notice, but I won't take any of your opinions serious:P

Books:

Sometimes i read a lot, sometimes not at all. I nearly always read no-fiction, for similar reasons i don't watch movies. Here some books I recently read out of my kindle library. It's more or less a chronological list so the position doesn't has any meaning.
