About Me

IT IS A SHAME that i have to start my profile like this but it seems that i have TO DO SO!!
IF you are expecting a couch at my place i expect from you a few things....

AND I WILL AND CAN NOT HOST YOU if you do follow this few points.....!!

1) PLEASE read my whole profile carefully!

2) SEND me an official couch request!!

3) IF you are an experienced couchsurfer (more than 30 references (positive only)) with a complete profile and some pictures, your "Couch request" is enough with a short personal message to me.

...but IF you are a new (less than 30 references) "couch surfer" with a complete profile, i expect from you at least the following:
Who are you?! Tell me who is the person which is writing me!
What's your expectations?!
Why my couch?!

....and no, this is not done in a few words....

4) USE the password

* COUCHSURFING, IS NOT A FREE BED as mentioned in many forums and magazines! it is much more! so please be polite and read my profile!!

Thank you very much!!

...FREE TIP: don't verify your profile...its not worth it - the money does not go into improving this site!!

CURRENT MISSION:
- playing with my daughter and learn from her!

Personal description:

To summarize... I was working for SWISSAIR (best Airline ever!!), for different Telecommunication companies and the Swiss Army.

Between 2008 and nowadays i was travelling quiet a bit or even living in other countries while i was working there. Few years ago i stranded in Medellin where my now partner Maria Elena, also mam of our beautiful daughter Samira crossed my way.

Once in the past i was a passionate photographer (nowadays not so), like to hang out at home, watch movies or cook something together with Maria and our friends. Also sometimes (yes still with around 26 ;)) i like to make party in a good bar or club.

And couple things more.. I may look a bit crazy on my pictures but not worries it is also totally easy to have good conversations with me :)

More about me? You really need to know more about me? OK....

OK..right now i am working in Israel and have my place in Tiberias.

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING:

- Since I'm a active member of Couchsurfing i joined many organized meetings and also organized Meetings for others, with others and alone. Through some bad circumstances i lost in this part all links i posted in the past.

- Moste CS Activities i joined while i was traveling through Asia. Especially in Thailand, Vietnam, Burma and Indonesia i joined many Meetings and also i got hosted many times in this countries. Once in have time i will try to fix my list of people hosted me :)

- While i was back home in Switzerland i started the LMC Zurich (Last Minute Couch) Group (which thanks o CSHQ has no value anymore!!) , where is was moderator for about two years until i went back traveling. Also i revived people in my place back home.
During October and November 2012 i was traveling through Switzerland with my girlfriend. Even in my home country i got hosted by many good people.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURF EXPERIENCE:

- While i was traveling 2007/2008 thru South East Asia (India, Nepal, China (Tibet), Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Lao, Burma, Indonesia, Singapore, HK, Macau, KL) a travel buddy started talking to me about CouchSurfing. First it sounded a bit strange to me but after i had the first experience in Nha Trang with Mr Sir Nitti i left all my bad cogitations behind me. It was a great and fantastic experience.

PHILOSOPHY OR HOW I TRY TO LIFE!!
- German: Gott schenkt dir ein Gesicht, lachen musst du selbst English: God gave you a face, you have to laugh at yourself Dance like nobody's watching; love like you've never been hurt. Sing like nobody's listening; live like it's heaven on earth
- Die Menschen haben gelernt wie Vögel zu fliegen und wie Fische zu schwimmen, aber sie haben nie die einfache Kunst der Brüderlichkeit gelernt. People have learned to fly like birds and swim like fish, but they have never learned the simple art of brotherhood. (FOR ME THAT MEANS: we should help each other, if we can! And we always can, in some kind of ways)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

TYPES OF PEOPLE I ENJOY!
* Easygoing people with lust for life and adventure.
* Spontaneous people who don't take themselves too seriously, I'll try not to be too serious as well :)
* everybody who can hold interesting conversations about whatever... who are passionate about something in their life and have that little spark in their eye.
In terms of CouchSurfing.......
* I Really like people who take the time to read my profile and fill theirs out.
* If you cannot be bothered to do those two things, why should I go out of my way to host you? ;-)
* I like people who don't do CouchSurfing just because I offer you a free place to stay, coze its maybe saves them a bit of money.
* I like people with flexible travel plans who still let me know when their plans change. Canceling or changing at last min happens. It would just be cool, to know, i can help others in that case.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

OPINION ON THE COUCHSURFING.ORG PROJECT
* In my opinion, this project is/WAS so important in this world, where we have so many wars and only bad news on TV - Every time I meet people here,i get the feeling, that there are more good people in the world then it seems to be

* There is one thing I'm not really like: - too many people on CS don't accept or do't understand the philosophy of CS
* PLEASE, CS is not a FREE HOSTEL!! Most important, is sharing the culture!!
