Oh, jeez. I'm a happy person that loves a lot. People are very interesting, both as individuals as their societal structures. I enjoy exploring human diversity ^^. And building or doing useless things.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
It started in our house in Rio, that was practically always full of people! 5 rooms with an average of 8 inhabitants, lets say. And then in our tiny commune in the Netherlands too :). It's so nice to exchange stories, go dancing, teach each other strange things, go cycling, share random experiences and get to know each other and the country in such a lovely personal way.
dancing, nature, art, mechanic systems, antropology, filosophy, social innovations, cheesy movies, experiences... etc
Music, Movies, and Books
Zen and the art of Motorcycle Maintenance. Turkish Delight. Hitchhikers guide to the Galaxy.
Egon Schiele, Munch, etc.
Frida, Sa Som i Himmelen, any cheesy romantic comedy, Before Sunset, On the Road, etc.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
The amazing happiness of India's and Borneo's poor. Doing things not regarded as safe or appropriate that appeared perfectly fine (slum-visits in Rio, hitchhiking alone everywhere across the world, befriending the thief of my bike, talking to Israeli soldiers about Palestine, working in a solely male motorcycle garage, discussing world economics with spoiled western kids, dressing up as a guy for a housewarming party, exploring the topic of homosexuality with religeous persons, or polyamory, etc).
But mostly I remember those moments where you just lean back and realize what a nice persons you're with, and what a splendid life you do lead. And the warmth that spreads, the dreamy smile and intense happiness.
Teach, Learn, Share
I'll share whatever I'm doing at that moment. Feel free to join or to bring me along to your things.
