About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Showing people around in my country after some great experiences when i was couchsurfing in South america

ABOUT ME

I am Mark, 34 years old, finished my job as a lawyer after 9 years working for the same firm and then decided to do some travelling. Three months became one year, absolutely love South America !

I like to watch and practice sports (squash, climbing), have a drink with friends, listen to music, dance(although i´m not good at it:)) and most of all enjoy life!

Always interested in meeting new people and learn from them, I dare to say I am a really social guy

PHILOSOPHY

If you wanna get to know a country, start with getting to know the people

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

now that i ´finally´ live in amsterdam, that gives me more opportunity to let people stay at my place, after staying on other people´s couches for a couple of times.
i dont live in the centre but in the southeast of amsterdam. it doesnt have a really good reputation, but i think its fine (and not that expensive to rent as somewehere in the centre). and with public transport it´s easy and quick reaching the centre, so... i dont host everybody, i prefer people with references and people that show that they at least have read my profil.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I dont know of all the Couhsurfers are amazing, but at least the ones that I met were awesome ! Didnt have any bad experience, and finally got over my 'fear' of asking for a couch and not only a drink haha. Am still incredibly impressed with the hospitality of the South Americans, and hope that I learned a lot from them and can give a bit of that to tourists visiting my country

Interests

Sports, Music, travelling. Oh well, and we can talk about other stuff as well :P

Music, Movies & Books

(Arthouse) movies,just finished 100 years loneliness in spanish (that was hard!!).
Love music, visiting concerts of all kind of music, from Radiohead to DaftPunk to Coldplay, I even like Cumbia;). I have weekends that I go to a big dance event like sensation, o go to a rock festival, I dont care

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Did a 10day trekking in Huaraz, peru, amazing !!!
Another highlight, also climbed a 6088 meters mountain in Bolivia

Teach, Learn, Share

Oeff, what can i do?? Always like to help,in which i am good at. Can only say i am always happy and simpathic,love kids, and what else? I should have some qualities i reckon....
