About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Living life my way.

ABOUT ME

I'm a curious person, talkative (sometimes too much) who deeply loves to travel.

PHILOSOPHY

A close friend once shared Vivian Greene's point of view with me:

"Life's not about waiting for the storms to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain."

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Currently, I am happily surfing couches in South America. When I have a more steady home base I l love to host (my roommates and I built our own couch for Couchsurfers) and no matter where I am, I always enjoy meeting up with people at local events!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Simply great.

If you are new to Couchsurfing, you might want to visit this very useful page with lots of interesting information Resource Center

This Safety Center and these fun introductory videos may help you have a great experience, too.

Interests

Traveling, languages, music, chocolate (yes that counts as an interest!) and most of all meeting people from all over the world and sharing amazing moments with them, be it just a drink at the fireplace or enjoying breathtaking views from some remote temple in the jungle...

Music, Movies & Books

I like movies of many different kinds of genres from the epic ones to the documentaries (including in between movies like american history x) and almost the same goes for music, though I dislike house, trance, electro, and Swiss folk songs. The rest is more or less what I listen to. Bands I currently like a lot are Lake Street Dive, Foster the People, MGMT, Florence and the Machine and Cut Copy.

When it comes to books I'd go for entertaining ones like Shantaram (by Gregory David Roberts) and from the classic authors I like Orwell and Dickens.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Far too many to name...but one thing that I find amazing is to see that wherever you go and despite all the differences in culture, mentalities, life styles etc. when it comes down to feelings we are all equals.

And, spending the night with nomads in their yurt in the grasslands of Tibet.

Teach, Learn, Share

There is not much for me to teach yet - ask me again when I'm old and wise ;) but I enjoy exchanging life stories with other travelers and I would love to learn surfing. The one with the surfboard and the waves.

What I Can Share With Hosts

Let's make chocolate with my machine.
