About Me


There are so many places I have to go and once there do a hell of a lot of nothing. And in my view business like that needs to be attended promptly...


Addicted to traveling. Same there? Beginning to feel the withdrawal symptoms now...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have hosted a couple of people and enjoyed it a lot.


As I live in a large apartment downtown Budapest I have always had a friend or two staying in one of the rooms for a while, it just wasn't called couchsurfing.
Of course I surfed many a couch myself from Amsterdam to Mexico city, from Bombay to Granada but it just wasn't called couchsurfing either.
Now I'm "officially" hosting surfers and I'm enjoying it.


Apart from my work, photography (which is a hobby as well) I love sailing (tall ships), horse-riding, languages, and latin music. Wherever I travel I try to find the salsa bars, sí.
Actually I like many kinds of music, right now I'm listening to jazz, but the next album is punk rock.
I'm a salsa dancer. Wherever I travel I seek out the salsa people. Mi gente. Salsa places make me feel home anywhere. It's a bit like Couchsurfing.
Oh yes, and I'm a 4 season city-biker. I ride a bike wherever and whenever I can. Home and abroad.
