About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Help others have a good time in this pretty city of mine.

ABOUT ME

I'm an open-minded guy that likes to get to know new people and expand his horizon. People have described me as funny - but well, I'll let you be the judge. ^^

I'm very interested in what's going on in the world as well as history. Love to discuss that stuff.I have quite a bit of useless knowledge from hours and hours and hours wasted on Wikipedia; consequently I really like showing people around town and relaying historic anecdotes and so on.
One thing that's important to me is to always treat guests as well as possible, I hope I'll live up to this self-made goal. I also love to cook, and the more people join in, the merrier.

I do prefer (very) short term requests, so if you ask like a month ahead I'll probably won't know if I can host you or not!

PHILOSOPHY

I like Albert Camus and his Absurdism, but am way, waaay too inexperienced in philosophical matters to make a definite judgement about this.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Teach, Learn, Share

I'd sure like to share some Austrian, Italian or Thai recipes if anyone's interested. Also, if you like to smoke water pipes now and then, maybe I can give you a tip or two.
It goes without saying that I'm eager to learn more myself in those topics - and if anyone could help me improve my French or Russian, that would be especially awesome.

Also appreciated is knowledge how to play the piano. I just started playing and am eager to improve and learn tipps and techniques! ^^

What I Can Share with Hosts

Food, tea, sweets, waterpipe, random trivia and witticisms... oh yeah, and also my flat. =)
