About Me

Always exited to try new experiences with keen eye for discovering different cultures and linking it with their history to get a better understand of peoples mentality.
Traveled a lot in SA and some of the other countries, I go on a safari / trek or road trip about once a year. I like discovering new areas and tourist are always a good excuse to go do just that:)
I like knowledge and am active outdoorsy, combined with some good food and company I'm a happy chappy.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm interested in people's mentality and attitude, you can learn so much more than seeing the tourist hot spots so naturally CS is a good platform to do that.

Our house was also always full of exchange students and travelers, so I'm used to going on visiting them in their countries and discussing politics, the world and good wine

This kind of sharing is a way of life and not just and experience.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Took my first breath...never looked back since.
On a slightly more serious note, camping for 4 days Okovango Delta Botswana with the wild animals, it's amazing living in and around such beautiful beings .

Never too wise to share.
