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

I'm not 26..but i decided to be for the rest of my life!! :D

Personal description:
- I'm currently living in Medellin for some while or forever
- Well... If I tell you everything about me, you'll be reading this description for weeks. Not because I have such a interesting life but still there are many things about me...

So lets not do that. :)

To summarize... I was working for SWISSAIR (yes the Airline who was Grounded 2011), diAx & sunrise (Telco) and for the Swiss Army. While i was working for the Army, i was traveling quiet a bit and finally after 3 years of Backpacking i stranded in Medellin where Maria Elena, today the mam of our beautiful daughter crossed my way in January 2011. In august 2011 i went back to Switzerland to get a new Job, saving some money to go back to Colombia.

I'm passionate photographer, like to hang out at home, watch movies or cook something together with Maria and our friends. Also nightlife in Medellin is great and it is a lot of fun to join other people which having crazy nights outside.

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 :) The only problem i have is, when I warm up, nothing can stop me. :) So, if you end up into arguing with me about taste of wine, music, whatever... just enjoy it. It's fun at it's best. :

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

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 thorough 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 stared the LMC Zurich (Last Minute Couch) Group, 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 thorough 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!!
